Ampthill U16s went try-crazy in the second half as they put Cambridge to the sword in a dominant 45-12 victory.
A well contested first half saw Ampthill leading 14 points to 12 at half-time in very wet and windy conditions; the tries coming from Curtis Hymus and Charlie Fleckney, and both converted.
In the second half, Ampthill made good use of the conditions and, with the backs defending well and running good attacking lines, the tries came thick and fast.
Outside centre Kyle McSwiggan scored a try under the posts from a well worked move from the backs, before Sol Tovey came off the wing and crossed the line to put Ampthill 28-12 up following the conversion.
Winger Henry Regan then finished some good work from the forwards to score a try, with blindside flanker George Odell having a strong game.
Further unconverted tries came from Fleckney and Henry Regan, leaving Ampthill with a convincing final score of 45 points to 12 at the final whistle.
The coaches were very pleased with a strong performance which should set the team up for this Sunday’s important match against a very good Ruislip side in the Herts/Middlesex League.
