PUBLISHED: 13:00 20 November 2014

Verulamians U14 made it three league wins out of three on Sunday, with a hard-fought 46-26 win against Cheshunt

Vees controlled the first half with four tries and looked to have a comfortable 22-5 lead at half-time. 

Cheshunt fought back with three tries to get back within eight points with 10 minutes to go.  However, Vees kept their heads and scored twice late on to run out winners. 

The U13 side, made up of players from Vees and Tabard, romped to an eight-try victory over Harrow in the Saracens Herts Middlesex Junior League Division Five.

Neither team could find a way through in the early exchanges as both defences were well organised. However, midway through the first half Vees took the lead with a try from Joel Feeley and they extended it with scores from Dylan Simms and Kieron Lickfold. Matthew McKinnon added one conversion. 

In a dominant second-half display, Vees added a further five tries from Henry Tripp, Alex Shaw, Eddie Peckham, Kieron Lickfold and Dylan Simms. Aidan Clifford and Matthew McKinnon kicked three conversions between them to leave the final score 48-0.
