Royal Arsenal Early Summer League ’18 1st Entry Match Report – (Wed April 25th)

Royal Arsenal 10 Kool and the Gang 10

The game was fast-paced from the off with both sides scoring early and often.

Kyle and Andrew in particular created plenty of gaps in KATG’s defence and made up plenty of ground in the attacking game.

Some sloppy tagging by Royal Arsenal saw us concede a handful of first-half tries, but both sides went into the break neck-and-neck at 3-4.

In the second period, the game picked up where it left off with plenty of exciting attacking play mixed in with some defensive errors leading to a shoot-out between the two sides.

A few handling errors cost Royal Arsenal some chances to add extra points on the board, and one point it looked like the game was slipping out of reach with five minutes to go when KATE opened up a three point lead.

But after Jenny sliced through the centre of the pitch to score a try, the gap was just one point in the dying moments.

From there Arsenal wouldn’t be denied, harrying in defence to win the ball back and driving down the field to score a last-gasp try from Andrew, nicking the draw in dramatic fashion.

Had Arsenal taken all their opportunities the game was there to be won, but everyone deserves credit for keeping cool to the last second and ensuring the season got off to a positive start.

Player of the match went to Jenny for her first try for Royal Arsenal, and a shout out to Abbey, who played in her first game for the club and locked down the wing all game.

Woolwich Arsenal 14 Friendly East London 4

Woolwich Arsenal got to open up their season against the mish-mash side that was friendly East London, containing a mix of players from the other league sides.

From start to finish, Woolwich showed that the chemistry they have as a team was more than enough to wipe the floor with the opposition.

Katie and Ashley stood out, scoring a handful of tried each and making sure the scoreline was well out of reach by half time.

And Ovie, who’s joined Woolwich for the season, blasted through the defence a number of times to pick up a pair of scores with some impressive moves to skin defenders.

If that performance is a sign of things to come, Woolwich Arsenal will be a force to be reckoned with this season

Royal Arsenal Spring League Finals ’18 Entry Match Report – (Wed April 18th)

Royal Arsenal 14 Woolwich Arsenal 11

The final match of the early spring league for the Arsenal clubs was a hotly contested rematch of the midseason clash that finished in a hard-fought draw.

This time around the fixture would decide who walked away from the league with the wooden spoon, and who would surge up the league table to the lofty heights of seventh.

Right from the off it was clear the game was going to be a try-fest with both sides ripping defenses apart with their attacking moves and scoring a flurry of tries.

Kyle Graham, in particular, had a storming first half for Royal Arsenal scoring a couple of early tries which helped his side head into half time with a narrow lead.

But Woolwich Arsenal came back after the break and levelled the game up quickly with some exciting attacking play of their own, including a couple of stylish conversions from Jack Daniel.

From there, the game was end to end with Royal Arsenal managing to pull off a couple of desperate goal line defensive stands and countering well to put more points on the board.

The decisive moment in the game came when Royal Arsenal finished off a slick passing move to Zarine on the wing who darted in for the score and put the game out of reach.

It was a tight battle throughout though and both teams can be proud of their performances.

Man of the match went to George Sargent for a bustling performance in the centre of the pitch that acted as the spark for plenty of Royal Arsenal’s attacking moves.

Plenty of post match drinks were downed in the clubhouse afterwards as the whole club reflected on a season that provided plenty of ups and downs, but was always a lot of fun to be a part of.
