Cumbria Shield Cup

Saturday, 11th April 2009

The Hornets were knocked out of the cup by St Benedict’s at Mirehouse, having beaten them twice in the league earlier in the season.  Bennie’s were the better team on the day, albeit that we had a strong team with plenty of speed in the backs.

There were many good individual displays but playing as a team was the last things on minds!

We were guilty of not cl;earing the ball from our own twenty two, hence we were under pressure!

Man of the match was James Rocke wo, at 17, played beyond his years. Richard Percival and Dan Logan had great games too.

St Benedict’s 1st XV were off duty because Creighton could not field a team, hence there was a sprinkling of 1st XV men in the home team!

Half time:        17 pts to 7 pts

Final score:    34 pts to 14 pts

Hornets scorers:

Tries:    Dan Logan and James Armiger |(1 each)

Cons:   James Rocke (2)
