A round-up of the weekend's sports fixtures
U12 v King's Ely
Wisbech Grammar School U12s kicked off their season with an impressive win over King's Ely on Saturday. A hard-working forwards display allowed the backs plenty of space, meaning Alfie Hoyles was able to score a hat-trick of tries from outside centre. The electric scrum-half, Joe Miller, also waded in with a score having been an impressive link between forwards and backs with Joe Means throughout the game. This attacking performance, coupled with a sound defensive effort, secured a 20 - 10 victory on home soil.
1st XV v Wellingborough
The 1st XV, also playing at home, narrowly lost to Wellingborough School. Early tries from Jack Trundley and Oliver Mann, both converted by the latter, gave them an early lead. Despite creating a number of opportunities to score more tries the accuracy cost them, and with Wellingborough's kicker on form with the boot the final score was a 14 - 23 defeat. Next week they move on to face King's Ely away.
U13 v St Hugh's
The U13 played their best game of the season so far, producing a much-improved team performance and coming out victors over St Hugh's by 40 points to 15.
The Wisbech forwards demonstrated good rucking and offloading skills and this led to good forward dominance providing a good ball for the half-backs Jo Miller and Mason Slender.The centres, Miles and Alfie, ran strongly and good tries were scored by Alfie, Freddie and Jo.
The forwards continued to dominate at the scrum and breakdown in the second half with Ashton, Kaan and Harvey all scoring tries.
