KEVI vs QEHS – County Cup Final 2016

Written by 20161206_182501Captain Alex Donaghy

On the 6 of December, KEVI u15’s boys rugby team won the county cup for the third year in succession, beating Queen Elizabeth’s High School, Hexham 53-17.

The game opened with a  tense few minutes as both teams tried to settle their nerves but it was KEVI to score first with Alex Donaghy putting Fergus Simpson through a  gaping hole in the defence to open the scoring. Hexham immediately hit back scoring from the kick off. This was a wake up call for KEVI. The next 20 minutes was a gruelling, physical battle of defence with no side wanting to concede. However, Owen Priest managed to shrug off the challenge of three defenders and finished well in the corner for a nice try.
