Bucks get into their stride

Buxton U9s/U10s 6

Tupton 6

THIS was Buxton’s first game in six weeks due to the bad weather, but for Scouler this was his first competitive match for the team.

In the first of two matches, Tupton took an early lead straight from the kick-off, but Buxton replied with a quick try from Winter.

Tupton showed a greater experience in ball handling, however Buxton, not to be outdone, responded with an excellent display of tackling and defensive play from Hodgkinson and Atkinson. Despite this, Buxton lost 3-2.

In the second game, Buxton quickly got into their stride, registering four more tries through Winter (2) and Morris (2).

Again, the ball handling, support play and tackling from Buxton was fantastic, including some try-saving tackles from Proud.

This was a fine team performance which hopefully this young side can now build on.

Buxton: Proud, Baker, Atkinson, T Morris (2), B Morris, Hodgkinson, Scouler, Winter (4). Man of the Match: Ben Morris.
