Match Report for

Boston Ironsides (1st) vs. Bennington (1st)
09 September 2017

Location: Moakley Park

Boston Ironsides: 5    Bennington: 42

While the score indicates a one-sided affair, it was not quite the story. The home team has long stretches of possession - particularly in the second quarter but failed to turn into scores. The allowed several scores quickly in the first 10 minutes which seemed to upset their balance and rythm and balance and they did not recover. These scores came from basic errors causing needless penalties and the visitors quickly exploited the situation.

In general, line outs and scrums were pretty stable and organized. The home team moved the ball too slowly across the backs to make progress and the visitors attacked the weaknesses and lack of tackling by the home team. Overall, an enjoyable game to ref on such a beautiful day.

Referee: Declan Boland
