Sub14: Estrecho v Granada
Date: 10th March 2018
Ground: Instalaciones Deportivas Pueblo Nuevo Guadiaro
Conditions: Heavy Rain/Windy (12)
Referee: Juan José Olmo López,
Estrecho won the toss and chose to play downhill in the first half strong wind behind them.
Granada kicked off to Estrecho who immediately returned the ball into the Granada half of the field. The weather conditions were incredible with strong driving rain which made handling very hard but both sides did extremely well in the circumstances. Granada had a very big pack but Estrecho handling them very well and Estrecho piled the pressure on the Granada defence and constantly attacked the Granada try line.
In the 12th minute some great work by the Estrecho forwards put Carlos in for a well deserved try, Carlos ran strongly for the try line brushing off 3 defenders to score. Manu failed to convert the extras (5-0).
From the restart Estrecho attacked again and for all their efforts they could not break the Granada defence, then with the last play of the first half Granada broke out of defence with their big forwards and scored a try to make it 5-5 at half time.
Half Time: 5-5
The second half belonged to Granada and their big forwards started to get on top in the muddy conditions. Granada scored 2 more tries in quick succession to rock Estrecho and in the last minute they scored again. The score line did not reflect the effort and energy the Estrecho players had put in, a great game in very difficult conditions and a big thank you to Juan Jose the referee for keeping the game going.
