Owls Win North Walsham 7’s

By Sean Mills

The Owls travelled to North Walsham intent on retaining the Ladies’ title they won last year. They did so with some style!

With tough competition in the round robin league The Harwich side’s first game was against Woodbridge. It turned out to be a disjointed game with the Owls eventually putting on some attacking flair to win the game 29 - 10. The next game against Lakenham Hewitt saw Harwich develop their attacking game and dominating the match, running out victors 33- 5.

The next game against the Jolly Sailors was again a one-sided affair with the Peterborough side struggling to cope with the pace at which the Owls were playing and the full time score of 43 - 0 highlighted the gulf. With UEA withdrawing from the competition because of injuries Harwich played their last league game against Wymondham after a long wait. This had no effect on the Owls who again showed too much pace and a powerful defence to win the game 39 - 0.

The semi-final saw Harwich facing Woodbridge again. This time the Owls were now on top form and on the larger pitch moved the ball at a pace Woodbridge could not cope with at all. Despite some aggressive defence by Woodbridge they were overrun by Harwich who qualified for the final with a 51 - 0 victory.

The final against Lakenham Hewitt underlined the how well Harwich had improved over the day. In attack the pace and movement were a constant threat to the opposition defence and when Lakenham were able to get their hands on the ball they were met with a stoic defensive wall. The final score of 39 -0 highlighted the dominance of the Owls.

This was a superb display of sevens rugby from Harwich & Dovercourt to retain the trophy.

The squad was: Abi Cutts, Sophia Tricker, Naomi Dobner, Bronwyn Skipworth,Katy Dock, Mimi Montgomery, Annalise Allan, Amber Wadlow, Yas Amber, Poppy Flatt, Lauren Richardson, Louise Willcott and Georgie Lingham
