And Shelford suffer defeat to Wimbledon

Cantabrigian came up short as they were beaten 19-10 at home to Stowmarket in London League 2NE.

The visitors opened their account with a converted try after 28 minutes and they extended their lead before half time, with an unconverted score from their winger.

Cantabs replied early in the second half, with Rich Ford charging down a clearing kick for the hosts to regain possession, and hooker Will Knights got his first try for the club.

Stowmarket increased their lead to 19-5 with another converted try that did not reflect Cantabs’ territorial advantage.

Chris Kelly touched down for Cantabs, but they could not find another score for a bonus point.

Lewis Cracknell’s two penalties were all Shelford had to show from their match against Wimbledon as they went down 62-6 in London League 2NE.

An injury list that numbers 18 is hurting Shelford, but Cracknell had landed an early penalty as Wimbledon led 7-3 after 11 minutes, and he got the second as it was 24-6 at half time.

A rising penalty tally went against Shelford after the break as they conceded a regular flow of points to lose 62-6.

They head to Westcliff on Saturday (September 29) searching for their first win of the season.
