Kenilworth survive Wasps’ sting in five-try Wymondham victory

Kenilworth Ladies returned to winning ways on Sunday with a 33-27 victory over Wymondham Wasps at Glasshouse Lane, writes Aisling Straver. The result follows their 36-17 defeat away to Birmingham Moseley with Wymondham Wasps also entering the match on the back of a defeat after a three-point loss to Bletchley.

Kenilworth had an excellent start to the match and were 14 points up after just 10 minutes through two converted tries. Outside centre Sophie Henry opened her side’s account, with a superbly timed interception to touch down under the posts before Caroline Spence went over on the right three minutes later. Rebecca Lewis added both conversions.

Wymondham Wasps came back strongly, however, scoring a well-worked try with 19 minutes on the clock to cut the deficit to nine points. The missed conversion left the score at 14-5.

Despite conceding a try, the hosts continued the momentum from their two early scores with Maddie Rendell crossing for her side’s third. The fly half made a brilliant break to touch down under the posts, with Lewis again adding the extras to take Kenilworth up to 21 points.

Wymondham started the second half brightly in a bid to overhaul the 16-point deficit, ensuring that the hosts had a real game on their hands. After 47 minutes of play the visitors scored twice in the space of five minutes but the missed conversions meant Wymondham could only close the gap by 10 points to 21-15.

However, just four minutes later Kenilworth were back on the scoreboard to extend their lead. Winger Katie Brown found herself in space with the ball and some good footwork took her past the Wymondham defence to score for a 28-15 lead following Lewis’ conversion.

Wymondham then added a fourth on 69 minutes to take things to 28-20 before Spence added her second five minutes later to all but seal victory. A converted try for the visitors two minutes from time ensured a nervy finish to proceedings at Glasshouse Lane but the hosts came out on top by 33-27 with the two sides separated by just three Lewis conversions.

The Ladies have a break in fixtures this weekend before back-to-back encounters with Bletchley bring 2018 to a close. The first of these two matches is an away league fixture (9th December) before Bletchley make the trip to Glasshouse Lane the following weekend (16th December) for their third round Cup tie.
