Bridgwater & Albion Women 59, HQ Harlequins 10
Women’s NC 3 South West (West)
BRIDGWATER and Albion Women made it three wins in a row when they comfortably beat top-of-the-table Hardwicke and Quedgely Harlequins on Sunday afternoon.
Playing into the wind in the first half, the hosts gained good ground and it wasn’t long before captain Taylor Wetherell battled through three defenders and ran under the posts for the first try converted by Charlotte Woodward.
Bridgwater extended their lead after a strong scrum and some great quality passing the ball ended with Woodward who ran the try in wide and then added the extras.
At the kick-off Harlequins were awarded a penalty, which they chose to tap and go, however the ball was ripped away and turned over, and with great support Woodward evaded all the defenders and ran half the pitch to run in the third try, which she then converted to make it 21-0.
Harlequins were still playing with passion and determination and following a penalty on the five metre mark they ran in their first try of the game.
Bridgwater continued to attack and following a scrum the ball found its way to Tazmin Selway who was just short of the line but managed to pass to Wetherell who crossed for her second try which Woodward converted making it 28-5 at the break.
Harlequins came back renewed from half time and looked dangerous. However from a Bridgwater scrum Taylor picked up the ball and ran in wide for her hat-trick try.
From the kick-off a good run out of defence the ball found its way to Woodward who crossed for her own hat-trick which she also converted.
Back in play again the ball found it’s way to Taylor who evaded all the defenders, and gave a fantastic hand off to the opposition to score her fourth try which Woodward converted.
The hosts weren’t done and after good attacking the ball went to Chloe Edrich who ran confidently to the line for her first ever try.
