Sports Report - CHILTON CHAMPIONS!!
Bridgwater School Festival
Chilton took a strong outfit over to Bridgwater Rugby club where they faced two tough encounters against Hargrove and Brymore.
The first game seen Chilton get off to a great start with Ollie Manchip, Phil Gogolin and Will Stevens crashing over the white wash! It was a great first outing for the boys who were eager to get off to a good start and set the standard high. Ashley Higgins, Leighton Redwood and Dan Warren made strides in the loose and some big tackles when needed. The final whistle ended 7 tries to 0.
The second game saw Chilton face their arch enemies Hargrove. When Chilton last played Haygrove earlier on the season it was a tough encounter with Haygrove coming away with a close fought win.
It was only right the stage was set for the final at the festival. Chilton got off to a flying start with Ollie Manchip crossing the line to put Chilton 3 tries ahead. Haygrove got back into the game with a barn storming run from their outside centre. Although Leighton Redwood started making huge tackles and Darren Warren and the other forwards smashing rucks. Chilton walked away 3 tries to 2.
It was great to see the boys so happy about winning the competition which they failed to do so last year.
It only leads to an exciting year ahead when we enter the Somerset cup in Year 9.
