Dursley U14s vs. Bredon U14s
1st October 2006
Match Date: Sunday 1st October
Venue: Dursley RFC
Playing in their first home game of the season, Dursley faced Bredon in what proved to be a difficult encounter.
The Dursley squad started well, with attacking runs by No.8 Jon Turner with good support from flankers Max Pullin and Tom Walpole. All was square for most of the first half, until Bredon pulled one ahead, running through some weak tackling out wide. Another within a matter of minutes was inevitable, but the home squad fought back, with a forward dominated effort seeing prop Elliot Dessi breaking through the Bredon defensive line to bring Dursley within 7 points. Bredon however came back again to finish the first half 17-5.
The second half started in a similar manner to the first, with Dursley defending well thanks to efforts by replacement flanker Josh Bailey, with centres Callum Williamson and Paul Wetherall. Bredon to their credit eventually broke through, and in quick succession took two more tries. Dursley held their own again for a spell, but no more points came their way. A final score of 31-5 to Bredon summed up the match where the visitors dominated Dursley at the ruck.
