Amazons arrive at half time and win in 30 mins

It was clear from the whistle on a windy and dry Chesham day, that after a three week break, a changed Amazon back line was out of sorts. Despite a heavily injury-effected squad after 14 minutes the host’s Dee Turner capped a well constructed attack by touching down for her Captain, Kerry Fitzpatrick, to convert. Only a few minutes later and Turner set up Nina Nachreiner to follow suit. A hesitant and disorganised Woodbridge suffered repeated assaults from a positive Chesham three-quarter line which eventually broke their defensive line again before half time with an unconverted Danielle Flynn try.

After the break the Amazons Captain, ‘EJ’ Stearn, led from the front, fighting back with a breakaway try converted by Steph Cotton. This reinvigorated the Amazons who found their familiar shape and began to build on their forward dominance and put together some creative phases of play. After another try is denied by a slippery ball, EJ scored again (no conv) only to get her converted hat trick 5 mins later. In an accelerating second half turnaround the Amazons found form and it was only another 10 minutes until Titilia Maharaj scored. At that stage Chesham’s injury count prevented further play and, with the generous agreement of the visiting team, the game was stopped.

Final score: Chesham 17, Woodbridge Amazons 26.
