LOCAL rivals St Neots were put to the sword by St Ives U14s, who ran out convincing 57-0 winners.
Tries came at regular intervals with Harris Christison (2), Paul Littlechild (2), Sam Bullock, Ryan Szembel, Pat Nicholson, Jonny Radbone and Jack Bainbridge all crossing the try line.
An evenly-fought contest saw Saints U9s just miss out against Peterborough at Bourne, going down 5-0 despite some fine tackling from Cameron Pollock. The team fared better in their next fixture, defeating hosts Bourne by 20 points to five. Jake Bowen scored a hat-trick of tries and Peter Ford added the fourth.
Saints U10s also had a mixed bag as they suffered a 30-0 defeat at the hands of Peterborough but triumphed 25-0 against Bourne. Tyler Elstub scored a hat-trick and a brace of tries from Sam Hirons completed the scoring in what was a fine squad performance.
A tightly-contested fixture saw St Ives U13 come away with a 5-5 draw from Wellingborough. Saints put the wind to their advantage in the second half and Nathan Dewar equalised with the visitors' only try of the match.
A disappointing performance saw Saints U16s lose out 20-12 at Wellingborough. James Wood became the first Saints player to be sin-binned for a high tackle but returned to claim the man of the match award for his side. Steve Hehir and Tom Brown scored the tries with Dan Breed adding a conversion but St Ives were left ruing the basic errors that had gifted the hosts victory.
Saints U15 earned a 26 points to five victory against local rivals St Neots. Andrew Howard and Matt Bligh scored two tries apiece while Tom Mulqueen picked up the man of the match award. Howard was in fine form with the boot, kicking the rest of the points for St Ives.
A SUPREME effort gave Stags U15 a well-earned 12-5 victory against Shelford. A Karl Smith try and man of the match Tom Morgan conversion gave them the lead at the break and Mark Cox's effort just two minutes from time secured the win.
