After a season of not being able to play rugby at the Mannings due to the weather and pitch conditions and teams not wanting to travel to Drybrook, the 3 girls teams finally had home games for the last games of the season.
The u13s played against a much bigger and very strong exeter squad, and did well to match the girls throughout the game. The u13s didnt want to lose on their final home game and dug deep to ensure their amazing match winning season didnt end in a loss.
The girls managed to hold on for a draw and did really well to finish the game level.
The u13s have had a trully amazing season, winning tournament after tournament and should be congratulated on the success they have had, well done girls!
The u15s girls played against Tewkesbury u15s in a match that saw both individual skills and talent as well as brilliant team work. The u15s have had a rocky season through injuries but in this final game all girls were on form and gave the spectators a spectacular game to watch, with a try frenzy!
The final score was 77 – 5 to Drybrook, with katie jeffery, shauna bennett, lottie Fisher, and saska bowdler scoring the tries, and saska also kicking conversions. The u15s have showed grit and determination all season, though they have been up against it on numerous occasions, this result was deserved and showed them to be the wonderful squad they are.
The u18 girls played a round robin v Wyevern Warriors and Tewkesbury -with a few players out due to work committments, Drybrook knew they had to dig deep as a squad.
In the first game against Wyevrrn Warriors, the play went end to end, with tries scored by wyevern then drybrook then wyevern again. Some great play saw drybrook match the 3 tries scored by the opposition, but were unlucky to just lose the game by a conversion. Drybrooks tries were scored by Hannah Meek, Ty Tucker and April Vanston.
In the second game versus Tewkesbury, the girls were determined to come away with a win. Their passion and skills paid off and the girls beat their good friends from Tewkesbury by 14 points to 5. Both tries scored by Ty Tucker, with Maizie Morgan kicking the conversions. The u18s have had a season of ups and downs but have stuck together and kept going to show they have dedication and determination as well as exceptional talent and great team work as a squad.
