1st VII Girls: Reigate 7s

The Girls’ 1st VII team had another outstanding tournament, winning the Reigate 7s without conceding a single point and having the overall player of the tournament in their ranks.

On their route to the tournament victory, Epsom amassed a total of 120 points. First up were Christ’s Hospital and Royal Hospital who were calmly dispatched 41-0 and 29-0 respectively, Grace Crompton (R) scoring six tries, Isabel Evans (R) scoring three times (as well as converting multiple tries) while there were tries for debutants Alyssa Takahashi (Cr) and Tassy Williams (R), and one for Jennifer Phizackerley (Cr).

Having won the group, Epsom then played King Henry VII Southampton in a friendly as both teams had lost a group game due to team drop outs. Lots of experience was gained in this game for debutant players, with experienced players Claudia Hess (W) and Emilie Cashman (R) both scoring, while captain Isabel Evans led by example, scoring at the last to win 15-12.

Through to the cup group against Wellington College and hosts Reigate Grammar, Epsom’s defence stepped up to an incredible level, putting in some dominant and imposing tackles. Neither opposition was ready for the entire team hunting for the ball and Epsom ran out 31-0 and 19-0 winners respectively.

Grace Crompton scored six times over both games with Isabel Evans getting onto the scoresheet and another debutant scoring in Margaux Soin (Cr).

A fantastic day and performance from all players, especially in defence, with barely a tackle missed all day.

Congratulations to all players, especially to Grace Crompton for winning player of the tournament and to the three players (who all scored) making their debuts today.
