U13s PLAY THE OKEY COKEY

Okehampton U13s 10 pts v Sidmouth U13s 10 pts

Devon Cup 1st Round at Okehampton

A brilliant all round team performance took the boys forward into the next round of the Devon Cup by virtue of the away draw rule. Early Okehampton pressure was absorbed and good back play went unrewarded by last minute handling errors due to the wet conditions. The basis of a 0 – 0 scoreline at half time was the excellent scrummaging by the forwards and some good tackling by the backs. The second half was dominated by Sidmouth, encouraged by their 1st half performance. Great scrummaging and rucking by the forwards ensured good ball from which Dan Powell and Rabbie Hansford were able to pierce the Okey defence to give Sidmouth a deserved lead on two occasions. Unfortunately Okey responded with tries of their own after each of our tries, but it was Sidmouth who looked most likely to score in the dying minutes. A superb display against a strong team away from home will give the boys great encouragement for the season on top of their victory against Tiverton last week.
