KENILWORTH GIRLS TAG SUCCESS
Cougars first game was against Shipston. Kenilworth came out with their game faces on and won very convincingly 9-1. The second game was against Evesham, previously league winners. The Cougars played with amazing team work and defence coming out on top 7-4. The final match of the pool was against Bournville who had just beaten Shipston. The Cougars maintained their game play and won 9-1. The Cougars were delighted to go through to the play offs for 1st to 4th positions.
The Kittens had tough opposition too, their first game against Old Laurentians which they lost 8-0. The second game against Pinley, an older girls side who have played contact previously. Brilliant play by the Kittens saw them scoring twice with tries by Charlotte and Abi (Captain) but losing overall 5-2. The final game against another seasoned opposition Keresely losing 4-2. Brilliant effort by the Kittens, with our younger players putting into practice some training techniques and playing some good rugby. A special well done to Abi for her captaincy skills.
The semi-final playoff match was Cougars v Bromyard. Bromyard are the current league champions, so it was going to be another difficult game. The Cougars dug deep, are won 7-5. Through to the final against Yardley, whose defence is always strong. With immense teamwork and skill, the Cougars won 7-4.
The key word for the Cougars was teamwork, constant communication plus some brilliant defence and amazing tries. It was impossible to pick one person as player of the tournament as it was all down to their teamwork. Well done Cougars.
