- Wins for Prince Henry's, Oaklands, Henley and Moulton
- Prince Henry's in impressive form with 73-0 victory
Prince Henry’s, Oaklands, Henley and Moulton all recorded wins in the latest round of AASE league action on Wednesday.
The lion share of the action took place in the northern league. Prince Henry’s racked up a huge 73-0 win against Gosforth academy with Josh Bainbridge top scoring the try chart with a hat trick, whilst Dan Tai, Max Wright and Max Green all scored doubles.
Moulton College came through a tough encounter to beat Worcester Sixth Form College26 - 19. The Northamptonshire college ran in four tries with Cameron Lee-Everton, Cameron Clarke, Jack Bramston and Owen Griffiths all scoring, while Harry Sheppard added the rest with the boot.
Worcester came close, but tries from Max Himbury, Myles Edwards and Declan Hadly were only enough for a losing bonus point.
Moulton head coach Jon Phillips commented: “It was a tough game for both sides but a good hard earned win for us and exactly what we needed finishing with a bonus point win.”
In the other northern league encounter, Oaklands recorded a surprisingly comfortable 44-0 win against Myerscough College.
Zach Farrance with two tries for Oaklands
Zach Farrance scored a brace for the Hertfordshire college, with Billy Walker, Ben Rawinsky, Ewan Dickson-Earle, Jack Singleton and Lewis Daly all scoring one each.
Head Coach Dave Hesketh said: “It’s really good to get the win; we stuck to our game plan throughout the match, so it was great to see it pay off. It was also our first appearance on the new first team pitch so hopefully that’s a good omen."
In the sole AASE league south fixture, Henley College bounced back from a disappointing home defeat to Filton College last week by beating Ivybridge Community College 36-17 away from home.
Henley scored five tries in a bonus point victory through Liam Shields, Jacksn Burton, Conor Corrigan, Pat Culligan and Rob Waldron.
Ivybridge could only muster two tries in response through Xander Connaher and Corey Whane.
Henley College Head Coach Danny Batty was pleased with the improvement on recent performances, he said: “Our forwards and backs combined better than in the previous two games and I was pleased with the options that Liam (Shields) took.
“We weren’t going to underestimate Ivybridge, because we were well aware of how good they can be in attack. They’re a young side but they can score from anywhere on the pitch if you give them turnover ball, so it was important we looked after possession. We effectively killed them off with a try either side of half time.”
Hartpury College’s fixture with St.Paul’s Catholic College was postponed.
