Huntingdon Stags U13 19
STAGS were caught off-guard as Kettering began at a fast pace on Sunday.
The home side's quick passing moves saw them storm into a four-try lead as the Stags tried to get a hold on the game. The first half ended with Kettering in a commanding lead, which they extended by a further two tries shortly after the interval. Stags rallied shortly after, with Tom Guilliatt-Griggs running between the posts for a try, and some good passing from the back saw debutant winger Alex Marsh and Bal Dhital add to the score line, but Stags' rally was too late for them to get anything from the game.
