Under 12s finish season on a high
By Russ Allen
Chosen Hill beat Minchinhampton 40-19 in an entertaining last game of the season.
Chosen Hill Under 12s produed a fine performance to see off Minchinhampton by 6 tries to 3 in their final game of the season. Chosen started quickly and a lovely break by Ed Smith produced the first try of the game. Ed, who caused havoc in the Minch backline for the entire game, added a second try soon afterwards. The Chosen forwards were producing some good quick ball and Liam Beale capitalised, sniping down the blind side for another Chosen try, converted by Ed. To their credit, Minchinhampton never gave up and a powerful run by their centres produced a try in the corner, which was converted. The second half produced some great rugby, Connor Grant burst through 4 tackles to score after a barnstorming run. Callum Allen grabbed a try from a quick penatly soon after and although Minch rallied briefly to score 2 tries in quick succession, Jack Hambling put the icing on the cake with a tenacious score, having turned the ball over. A great end to the season for the Chosen Hill Under 12s who are already looking towards next season with optimism.
