New Year Win in Friendly for U17's
U17's Narrowly Beat Saracens in Friendly 29-21
With 2018 just underway and, after a long lay-off due to poor weather and cancelled Fixtures, the U17's faced Saracens in a Friendly. This Fixture having been hurriedly arranged after Upminster conceded against us in what was to have been our Essex Cup Semi Final at Home.
Both teams have fairly large squads, so we were able to play everyone across the four 20 mins quarters.
Brentwood started well, running in two tries and taking a 10-0 lead. However, Saracens kept plugging away and narrowed the score to 22-21 in the latter half of the third quarter. In the fourth, and with the slope advantage, Brentwood ran in a fifth try and converted. Final Score 29-21.
Well done lads. Westcliff in National Cup next week!
