Ealing Trailfinders Girls Youth Section vs Eton Manor – U12 Match report

Ealing Trailfinders Girls took on their 4th competitive fixture against Eton Manor with an early start on Sunday 18th February. After a great pre match chat from Trailfinders Women and England Red Roses player Liz Crake, it was genuinely a game of four quarters with neither side able to really establish superiority.

Eton Manor ran in 5 tries in the first quarter while Trailfinders Girls had their customary slow start; only to strike back with 6 tries of their own in the second quarter after some excellent work from Catherine G who contributed a hat trick of tries in a matter of minutes. The key change in fortunes can be attributed to some aggressive tackling and breakdown work when everyone had finally woken up!! The loan of several key Trailfinders Girls players (who all contributed to their guests play) meant Trailfinders Girls eventually succumbed to a 13 -11 defeat – with a couple of late scores from Eton Manor’s player of the match making the difference. The game was again very competitive and played in great spirit. Both sets of players shared food and drinks in the clubhouse before we restore ‘hostilities’ at the Eton Manor U12s Girls Festival in a couple of weeks time.
