The Glennie U13 Rugby 7’s Team played their finals on Thursday night. The first task at hand was to win their semi-finals against Downlands. After a slow start to the game, the girls fired up, with many big hits and wonderful passing the girls were on top after the final hooter. This win took the girls through to the Grand Final against TAS, and what a game it was.
The girls began with a few minutes of head-on competition and no tries, a very nerve-racking time for all the Glennie Supporters. However, after some calculation, the girls used the width of the field and got the ball to our speedsters on the wing. After some wonderful tries, the girls decided to take TAS on from a more tactical point, where Lucy Griffiths leads the team from the front. The final hooter blew and the score was 15-0 to Glennie. This was an amazing achievement to keep TAS tryless and we have a beautiful trophy to showcase.
Congratulations Girls. We are very proud of your commitment and efforts over the season. Your skills have improved immensely and we are extremely excited to see how you go next year.
