Team Middlesex Match Reports
Team Middlesex U17s v Surrey U17s
|Date:||29 January 2017|
|Venue:||Hazlewood (London Irish RFC)|
|Result:||Team Middlesex 25. Surrey 15|
Middlesex showed much progress in this game and were tested by a very well coached Surrey side. The first quarter Surrey were very much in control and went 2 tries ahead. The next 20 minutes Middlesex displayed some fine skills and scored 3 tries by Finlay Mackay, Markus Martins and William Harris.
As the game progressed the rain got heavier, but the all weather playing surface allowed for a display of sound core skills by both teams. Surrey scored the next try by some forward driving play and with the game at 15 – 15 there was much to play for. Middlesex scored a well worked try by centre Chris Ball. The last 20 minutes was a close game as both teams played a wide ball game on the 3g surface. It was however Middlesex who scored the final try by Angello Dineen putting the final score at 25 -15.
Middlesex U17s are next in action against Hampshire U17s away on Sunday 9th April, 14.00hrs KO at Portsmouth RFC.
