Fitting End to the Season for The Dragonesses
By Chris Newson
In their last tournament of the season the Dragonesses played hard & ultimately won a trophy.
A busy weekend for the OLs Dragonesses started on Saturday afternoon at the club's end of season fun-day. The girls hosted local side Kersley RFC in a exhibition game & OLs fielded two teams & took part in a round-robin with the visitors. Both OLs sides played with the same fast-moving Rugby they've been perfecting all season & scored a number breakaway tries. The off the ball running was also excellent & runners rarely had to wait for for the offload. Things were looking good for Sunday.
The last tournament of a great year for the girls took place in Kenilworth on the Sunday. Having played the day before OLs hit the ground running, with both teams winning their first games 8-2 & 5-4. The rest of the tournament was a real pleasure for the coaches to witness with the teams putting all their hard work in training this year onto the field with some great performances. Even with their excellent play, the girls didn't make the second round having been pooled with some of the leagues best sides, but we're expecting big things next year.
To finish a great weekend, during the end of the season festivities the Dragonesses discovered that they been voted the Fair Play cup by the other teams in the league. A fitting end to another awesome season from the Dragonesses.
