Rugby Town Colts 4 v 3 Ambleside Warriors (Sponsored by Sytner Coventry)
The visit of the runaway leaders didn’t faze the Colts who put in their performance of the season. As they took the game to Ambleside they created chances, Thomas and Archie seeing shots saved. Somi then drove at the Ambleside defence and was fouled, but as the ball fell to Archie he finished well past the keeper.
Ambleside have fast attackers and Gabriel, Oscar, Harry, Danny and Alfie had to be alert to the breaks, with Matt fast off his line to cover. Great tackling prevented Ambleside getting shots on goal but a fortunate bounce saw them equalise, a second just before half time meant things looked bleak.
A stirring second half performance saw Colts dominate, Jack and Devan both strong in the centre with Somi and Fin fast down the wings and showing great skills. Somi scored twice after being put through by Thomas and Archie, before Ambleside equalised. A tense finish was guaranteed when Archie broke through and scored his second, but great defending saw the Colts victorious.
