Draw sets up Banbury clash

HENLEY HAWKS U13s progressed to the semi-final of the Oxfordshire Cup following a 5-5 draw at Witney U13s.

Henley were put under pressure for the first 10 minutes and conceded an early try. The visitors settled down and defended strongly and had a try disallowed before half-time. In the second half the forwards worked hard with Zac Nearchou and Oscar James leading from the front and in the end patience paid off with a try by Rafe Dickie in the corner.

The team remained committed until the end assisted by good tackling in defence from Harry Bindley-Ross and others in the backs who made sure of a semi-final fixture in February against Banbury.

Henley progress as the rules state in a drawn match the away side goes through.
