Chingford U14's lose to Old Brentwood
By Andrew Metcalfe
Multiple scoreline scenarios - but not a win!
The sun did come out on Sunday, but five hours too late to stop the Chingford U14's and Old Brentwood playing in Autumnal weather.
A brisk start from Old Brentwood - OB's saw them take an early lead. Chingford for a moment looked like this was going to be a full retreat, but a determined press up through OB's 22 eventually saw Ethan secure a well deserved equaliser. Further scores from OB's seemed to be cementing our fate, but a brilliant pack build-up led to Ollie getting free in the final left hand third. A loose ball bobbled for ever on its way to the dead ball line but Mason managed to get a hand to the ball and scored a well deserved second score for Chingford.
The second half saw more scoring from OB's with their Centre able to power through our defences. Chingford were able to contain the score line with Ollie checking back inside to keep Ching just in touch. Kayden scored another from a well executed scrum but the OB's were still there to put more points on the board.
The referee had the match very close (and he has the final word) but Chingford have to concede to a loss somewhere between 32-34 and 26-42 - it was scored so accurately by all of us!!! More work to be done but Chingford did NOT fold. Well done lads!
