Ben Brooks nets four tries and 26 points as March Bears humble Sawston 62-33 prior to Storm Ciara
March Bears 62 Sawston 33
In ideal sunny conditions prior to Storm Ciara setting in, this was a high scoring encounter on Saturday, writes Colin Galbraith.
Sawston, who struggled to field a full team, were loaned a few of the March senior players, especially as subs. This did not prevent March putting 10 tries on the board with Sawston replying with five.
One of the highlights was Ben Brooks’ haul of four tries and with a contribution to conversions this gave him a personal tally of 26 points.
The game had started with a surprise try for Sawston after four minutes. That lead lasted for one minute with Brooks’ first try of the match.
Four minutes later March Bears were into the lead with a Woollard charge for the line after a short penalty. But on 19 minutes Sawston’s No.12 ran in his second try.
Eight minutes later Fey picked up in the loose and drove over the line for a well taken try.
Shortly afterwards Brooks picked up after a massive kick to score in the middle followed by a conversion from a change of kicker Porter.
Ryan burst through several Sawston tackles and went over in the corner with a conversion from far out by Brooks (half-time: 33-14).
Three minutes into the second half Brooks went in for his next try and also converted but
Then for the next 20 minutes March looked like they may have let it slip as Sawston replied with three tries to March’s one, from Thomas.
Sawston had now drawn back to within 12 points but March stepped up a gear and Man of the Match Feaviour went in for his first try after taking a quick penalty.
This was followed by Brooks’ fourth try brought about by two good surges by the forwards. On the final whistle Feaviour added his second try.
