Herts/Middlesex League One: UCS Old Boys 36 Barnet Elizabethans 18

Henry Day’s hat-trick of tries helped UCS Old Boys to a 36-18 win over Barnet Elizabethans in boggy and extremely windy conditions on Saturday.

The hosts fell behind with just four minutes on the clock via a Barnet penalty, but the Old Gower attack soon kicked into gear and a prolonged six-phase linked passing move resulted in Liam Clarke finding Day who went over in the corner for an unconverted try.

They failed to build on their dominance though and Barnet scored in the corner on the half hour mark to move into an 8-5 lead.

That proved to be shortlived though as UCS went into the half-time interval 10-8 ahead when hooker Alex Turton scored a driving forwards’ try in extended loose play.

The stormy conditions began to take effect in the second half, but that failed to stop Day going over the try line for his second try of the afternoon when he scored a nimble try on the Elizabethans blind-side between their posts, before substitute Tim Hyland added the extras to extend their advantage to 17-8.

A game of attrition ensued from that moment onwards and the visitors kept themselves in the game when they went over in the corner following a scrum they won on the hosts’ 22.

Old Gowers were undeterred by that though and made the most of a quick tap penalty as Day danced over the line and scored between the posts to complete his hat-trick of tries, which Hyland converted once again and the hosts moved into a 24-13 lead.

Barnet then made the most of a 10-minute spell where Old Gowers were down to 14 following a sin-binning as they went over the try line to reduce the arrears to 24-18 and were still well in the encounter.

Once the hosts were back at full strength though, they turned the dominance into two tries in the final 10 minutes.

From a won scrum, Clarke scored a converted effort, before with time ticking away centre Marty Tootell went over as the hosts added gloss to the victory.
