Uppingham School Boys-U15B vs  Stowe School
On: Saturday, 13 Nov 2021
Venue: at Home

From the start we found ourselves on the backfoot defending against a strong ball carrying Stowe side but held firm with resilient tackling and super attitude.Eventually the pressure told and after a couple of missed tackles Stowe found themselves with a lineout on our 5 metre line and after executing a catch and drive they found themselves a score up.The rest of the half continued much the same with us unable to gain a foothold Charlie Hargreaves making the old break got our hopes up but we were unable to put some fazes together to sustain any pressure.Just before halftime we lost Henry Voce to a shoulder injury and Stowe found their way over after a couple of missed tackles to go in 12 points up.Second half and we found some momentum and forced our way over for our first scoreTed Stothard getting the ball down and Charlie Hargreaves knocking the conversion over, having lost our skipper at halftime to a head knock the boys rallied well and we had a couple of further opportunities to add to the scoreboard but gradually Stowe gained a foothold and went over twice more in the last 10 minutes against some outstanding defence from our boys final score 24 7 to Stowe.
