On the 5th of November, KCL welcomed one of their old friends UCL on the Berrylands’ ground. The sun popped out exactly when our lionesses stepped on the pitch making this a hot affair, the crowd was ready for the show.
The game started off in UCL’s favour, kicking the ball towards Cecile’s direction who quickly caught it and ran straight to the opposition. Our scrummy Mina perfectly managed the calls and the forwards started attacking in a pretty strong way. Lock Nadia smashed through UCL defence making some good bits. Freshers Sophie and Zooni showed they were both unstoppable by destroying everything on their way.
Back-line coordinated really well with the forwards. Reagan was on fire, who knew one year ago today that she will be an amazing kicker, suprising us as always! It was also so good to have our Amy back on the pitch, running like sonii the hedgehog and making us proud. Lights on, Helen magical steps were as beautiful as Picasso’s art. Fresher Raphi beautifully stole the ball 2 meters away from UCL’s try line and passed it to Anya that scored her first try for KCLWRFC (many to come hehe). Center, Lottie also scored a try by hand offin’ every girl on her way and running half the pitch on her own!
Forwards’ practised their vocals in the scrums, Nadia and Cecile put those quads into action making the UCL step back. Su and Sofya had done a great job when it came to defence, stopping every UCL player with incredible tackles! Shout out to Rihannon, Ella and Cecile’s noodle arms for stealing every ball in the line outs. It was also good to see that our Captain Paz, retired wing, showed where she belonged, among forwards just smashing and having the time of her life.
