Rugby Report by Jonathan Hart

On Thursday the 30th of January at Hedingham, we participated in a rugby tournament.  After a quick warm up, our first game swiftly approached and the bell rang, we were off.  We started brightly and Jason scored a try. Soon after, we scored another try! However St.Peters responded with one of their own.  Result 4-1 to Yeldham.    It wasn’t long before our next game where we took on Ridgewell.  Continuing on our winning stride we beat them 5-1.  They put on pressure to begin with, however we responded by scoring 4 without them scoring 1 and before the games end we struck again.  Moving on to Bulmer who we hammered 6-1 with an easy victory. We then played Steeple, who like us, hadn’t lost a game and well we lost 4-1, but I’d rather not discuss it.  Now we faced our rivals of this year, Gosfield.  It was the closest game of the tournament, knowing if we won this we would be in the final. The game ended in a 3-3 draw.

 

There we were standing in anticipation of who had got into the final us or Gosfield. When they said the words “Yeldham,” we screamed with joy.  We won by 2 tries and victory filled our minds.  However, we had to play Steeple.  We knew it was going to be a difficult match, but we were up for the challenge.  The whistle blew and we were off, they scored first and sadly another soon after.  However we struck back making it 2-1. The score was 4-1 when Jonathan scored a try but unfortunately they scored again, leaving the final score in defeat! All of us [even though we came runners up to a bigger school] were very proud of our efforts!
