HUNTINGDON Stags under-10 team stormed to the finals of the Edgar Mobbs memorial tournament in Luton at the weekend before losing to the hosts.

Stags first group game saw them cruise to a 20-5 victory over Bedford II with an aggressive and sustained attack. Simon Graham gave Stags an early lead before Matthew Waring doubled the score. Sam Lawrence and Graham added another two tries to wrap up the win. The next game saw them crush Peterborough 25-0 and the final group game against local rivals St Neots ended a 0-0 stalemate.

The semi-finals saw Huntingdon take on Wellingborough at a fast pace, moving the ball well and pinning their opposition back. Captain Lewis Ager put Stags ahead before Graham extended the lead. George Mansfield set up Sam Lawrence after the break for a long run to score at the corner and Stags held on for a 15-0 win.

The final saw Stags take on tournament hosts Luton, who proved to be the strongest team at the event with a 35-5 win. William Gould ran in a try in the corner but Stags were well beaten by an organised Luton team who scored seven tries as the visitors ran out of steam.
