Daventry Under14s produced a fantastic all-round performance to beat Towcestrians 24-17 in a great game.
Daventry started the strongest and scored an early try through Kian Marks after five minutes.
Daventry’s lead was short lived as Towcester managed to get their hands on the ball and demonstrated that they were not prepared to accept defeat with a well worked try. As both teams battled to gain control it was Daventry’s Harry Hayward who supplied a decisive break by scoring the critical third try of the morning. Hayward utilised some fast ball and found the perfect angle to break the well organised Towcester backs.
Daventry went into the half-time break 14-7 ahead.
The All Blacks youngsters increased their lead early in the second half with a well-worked team try, scored by Adam Ingham, who yet again, showed his power and pace to deliver.
Ingham scored his second of the game on 39 minutes to put Daventry 24-7 ahead.
A good Towcester team proved why they were on a good run of form as they refused to give up and scored two tries late on to create a very tense last seven minutes.
Despite this late pressure, Daventry’s defence proved as strong as ever.
As well as they tries, Hayward kicked two conversions.
