Bristol Ladies 24-29 Ayelsford Ladies

A storming second half comeback wasn't enough as Bristol Ladies left themselves too much to do in their Senior Cup fixture against Aylesford Bulls.

At a sunny Cleve RFC, the away side notched up 24 points in the first half with 4 tries from 4 different players (Riordan, Williams, Ambridge, Gray) and two conversions. The second half started with another try for the Bulls from Megan Snape, before Bristol got their first of the afternoon through Izzy Noel Smith.

This opened the floodgates for Bristol, who went on a scoring spree of their own. Jenny Fotheringham scored second, and shortly after a lovely kick through from Katie Mason landed with Deb Fleming who flew over the line. Philippa Tuttiet also converted two of the four, with and additional penalty try award on 77 minutes.

Aylesford spent most of the second half with 14 players, with two players sent to the bin, however Bristol couldn’t find that final score to give them the win, as the score ended 24 – 29.
