Cup Final Heartbreak for Under 8's
Last years Under 7's Champions lose in this years Under 8's final against Northampton Scouts Reds.
An under strength Cheshunt Under 8's lost out 10-5 in the Kingswood Festival Cup Final against Northampton Scouts Reds.
Cheshunt and Northampton were the only two teams with a 100% record in the group stages, overcoming some very difficult opposition on their way to the final.
Cheshunt had to overcome a 1-4 halftime deficit against Old Reigatians, eventually running out 8-7 winners.
The next two games saw Cheshunt beat Chelmsford 13-10 and Bedford Tigers 11-5.
In the final Cheshunt ran out of steam, and the efforts of the group games started to catch up with them. Losing 4-1 at halftime, Cheshunt briefly rallied, pulling the score back to 4-3.
However, a solid Northampton defence prevented a Cheshunt comeback, and at the final whistle a 10-5 scoreline was a fair relection of the game..
Despite the loss, the club should feel proud of the team, as the Holt organisers commented on smart appearance & their style of running, attacking rugby.
