Match report: Ventnor RFC 2XV “Lions” v Locks Heath Pumas RFC 2XV 15/09/2018


Ventnor RFC 2XV ‘Lions’  35 – 33 Locks Heath Pumas RFC 2XV 15/09/2018

The Ventnor 2nd team, the Lions, hosted Locksheath Squirrels at Rew Valley on Saturday. It was clear from the word go that Locksheath was a well drilled young side guided by two or three old hands as they opened the scoring from some elusive running from their backs.

Ventnor soon answered with a try of their own with Jason Corney crashing over. From there it was an arm wrestle for the lead till the very end when Gavin Davies crashed through their backline to score levelling the scores.

Veteran full-back Warren Riches who celebrated his 50th birthday earlier in the week added the conversion to win the game for Ventnor.

AJ Wells Man of the Match: Dan Noyes

Red Funnel Moment of the Match: Cory Turner.

Tries by Jason Corney x2, Alan Fox, Jacobus Stemmet and Gavin Davies. The 5 out of 5 conversions by Warren Riches.
