AN EXCELLENT team performance from Stags U15s saw them run out 17-0 winners at Olney.
Neither side managed to gain an advantage in the first half with play centred around the halfway line, though Olney had the better of the forward exchanges.
Gradually Stags' forwards began to gain the upper hand and with 20 minutes gone the visitors' pressure got the reward it deserved, when Joe Costello scored in the corner.

A great move by the backs found Mark Cox on the wing, who beat a tackle to run through and score under the posts, Costello converting. Cox collected the ball from another fine move to score his second try late on to hand Huntingdon a 17-0 win with Simon Price named man of the match.
