A close game belied by the scoreline
Basingstoke Academy v Redingesians match report.
Redingesians converted a penalty in front of the posts after 10mins stoke then got a try 10 mins later following a well worked front row combo with Adam Richards getting the try, converted by Ollie Rampton.
Rams responded 8 mins later with a break through a gap on the half way line and then converted the kick.
Stoke hit straight back at rams with a try in the corner from Jon Page but kicking into the wind took the distance out of Ollie Ramptons kick to deny the conversion.
Just before half time the Rams snuck a try in the corner following a set piece at the scrum on the Stoke 22, the gusting wind again prevented the conversion from going over. 15-12 to Rams at HT.
20 mins into the second half Rams benefited from a fluffed pass from Stoke and successfully broke through to score a cheap try but again no conversion.
With 10 mins to go Rams had a player sin-binned for a high tackle but tired bodies on stokes side couldn’t take advantage.
FT 20-12 to Redingesians.
