Dominant Kenilworth Ladies continue winning streak
Kenilworth Ladies continued their dominance over the NC Midlands 1 League table in a 48-0 away victory against Wellingborough, on Sunday, writes Cath Lyon.
Despite being at the opposite end of the table to their opponents, Kenilworth did not take the challenge lightly, showcasing excellent discipline throughout the match.
This became clear in the first few plays with Kenilworth quickly shaking off their travel legs, gaining seven points in the first seven minutes.
Multiple high tackles from the opposition also saw them awarded a penalty try shortly afterwards, setting the tone for a tough 70 minutes ahead.
With injuries on both sides of the pitch, Kenilworth also had the opportunity to showcase their strength on the bench, which was equal to that on the pitch.
This strength meant that Wellingborough, despite their tough defence work, could not meet their match, with Kenilworth totting up a 29-0 lead by the half-time whistle.
With the second half underway the match was only heading one way, with all of Kenilworth's back five adding to the scoreboard. The tries were converted by captain Rebecca Lane and full back Helena Allison-Moore.
All the glory wasn’t taken by the back line, however, with Caroline Spence impressing again at number eight and racking up ten points for the forwards through two tries.
Discipline across the pitch led Kenilworth to a 48-0 victory and another match adding to their so far unbeaten record this season.
This win leaves Kenilworth at the top of the league with everything to play for with Five Ways Old Edwardians just three points behind them.
The Ladies next match is this Sunday at Glasshouse Lane when they face Bridgnorth, who are currently in the middle of the table. Kick off is at 2.30pm.
They will test their strength against Five Ways Old Edwardians once again in the Intermediate Cup on the Sunday 19th November.
