Hammers 2nd XV ladies get the WIN!!!!

After a tough start in NC1, it was time to start putting it all together and boy did we do that. The first half was nail bitingly close, both teams being held to nil for most of the 40. The Hammers defence and support that we’ve been working tirelessly on for the last couple weeks held strong and some great backs moves definitely knocked on the Teddington door but it was the Antlers who managed to score first with about 10 mins to go in the first half: 7-0.

Tara nudged a penalty over for Hammers bringing it back to 7-3 to close the half.

Antlers again opened the scoring in the second half with an unconverted try: 12-3 to Teddington.

However, it was during the 2nd half that Hammers got busy. The fitness started to come through and Teddington could not keep up with the pace. A few dominant scrums from Hammers, a number of stolen line outs and some hard running from the backs and suddenly try to the Hammers by Jess Sass: 12-8 to Teddington. Another score by Lola and one by Whylie on her debut both converted by Tara then a final sealing of the deal by 2s top try scorer Jess Sass securing that bonus point!

Final Score: 27-12.  The progression of this squad is unbelievable and we can’t wait to see what else we have in the tank for the rest of the season.

Forward of the Match: Lauren Williams

Back of the Match: Jess Sass!
