Essex Cup Semi-Final
Gable Hall 29 v 27 Brentwood CHS
THE Gable Hall year 8 rugby team fought hard to beat a well organised Brentwood County High School Team 29-27 last week.
Gable Hall scored two early tries, but Brentwood’s high levels of organisation in their forward play helped them get back into the game.
The last moments were nail biting, with Brentwood missing a penalty kick in front of the posts and Owen Moore making an excellent tackle taking the Brentwood player into touch to end the game and claim the victory.
St. Clere’s School await the boys in the final after beating All Saints School in the other Semi Final.
Man of the match was Alex Darnley who had an outstanding game at No.8. His tackling and commitment were second to none and this helped lift the team to their deserved success.
