Year 8 Rugby

Report by: Harvey Beckerleg

Against a strong Truro side in a cup game, Mounts Bay Academy put up a good fight.  Although the overall score was not favourable, Mounts Bay defended well in the first half with one try conceded right at the end. 

In the second half, the momentum was with Truro and the forwards fought hard, but Truro managed to score a further two tries and a penalty.  Mounts Bay dug in deep with the forwards producing a good platform for the backs in the last quarter, which resulted in Frankie Nowell scoring a try.  The final score was Mounts Bay 5, Truro School 22.
