Match Report for

New London County (1st) vs. Freedom RFC (1st)
24 September 2016

Location: Pitch is located behind the school.

New London County: 40    Freedom RFC: 22

Great day for rugby. Fairly evenly matched in the first half.14-8, with New London leading. Both sides had mixed levels of experience. Breakdowns were scrappy and tough to officiate where numerous rucks were plagued with simultaneous issues. Each side drew a yellow card for dangerous tackles, and there were 2 instances of tackling players in the air (but not dangerous enough to draw a card). Otherwise, both teams played a spirited pick and go style of rugby for most of the game. New London's break away score came from 4 open field runs which resulted in trys in the second half, before Freedom drove 2 try's in, in the last 15 min of the game. On field attitude from both teams were excellent.

Referee: Crist Holveck
