Amazons hold Aylesford to tighter game
National Challenge SE1 League: Woodbridge Amazons 17 Aylesford 30
AYLESFORD, 86-0 winners in September, dominated the early exchanges.
Rowe, their centre, made some powerful runs and Philp took three points from a high tackle.
Aylesford panicked a bit during the next Amazon counter and a penalty drop-out saw Holmes score.
The visitors replied with Binskin-Barnes scoring a converted try.

Celebrations were short-lived as Richardson ran, unopposed, from the kick-off ruck and scored for Philp to convert. The restart scrum was turned over but Aylesford kicked for the Amazons to run it back, Dumbill and Kinlan driving hard.
However Woodbridge’s backs too often had to run away from their support and they were forced back to their 22 until Rickard and Stearn fed Tricker to score.
Aylesford’s forwards snapped back for the replacement No 6 to score and Philp to take three penalty points and a deserved win which confirmed them as league champions this year.
