Ormskirk Under 9s Rugby Team
SUNDAY brought another extended derby match against local rivals Tarleton for Ormskirk Under 9s.
With better weather conditions than the game the weekend before everyone was treated to an excellent morning of under 9s rugby.
The match finished in a tie at 13-13 with both teams deserving to win and neither deserving to lose.
Captain Sam made a welcome return to the team with more up front tackling in defence and scoring some powerful tries. Joel caused the opposition problems all morning with his width and pace being rewarded with an excellently finished score as well making some great covering tackles.
Jake ran into space all morning finding gaps as well as show casing his improved tackling technique.
Dan was a thorn in the side of the opposition all game, he grabbed himself another hat trick! Having an excellent debut season.
Adam was excellent again getting to the ball first on numerous occasions as well as throwing a number of dummy passes which were worked on in the warm up.
Pacy winger Harry grabbed himself another try with his direct running style always looking for the corner is paying off for him. His tackling has improved so much.
Jack was excellent at driving forward and making ground in the game, refusing to be tackled and he was rewarded with a hat trick of his own! Toby powered through the defensive line again this weekend. His powerful running style and nonsense tackling style continues to prove popular with players and parents alike.
George added another try of his own, but he must be noted for his unselfish passing again, always trying to pick out his teammates. Sacrificing several opportunities of his own so team mates could score. Coaches Jack and Dan couldn't pick out a man of the match as nobody deserved to be left out, as they all played excellently!
Thanks to the players, coaches and players of Tarleton for three extremely enjoyable games this season! Good luck for the rest of the campaign. This week the Under 9s go to Sedgley Park Tigers.
