Stourbridge v Kidderminster - North Mids Cup
By Alison Holloway
Stourbridge 48 - Kidderminster 0
Stour’s u14s were in dominant form in their North Mids Cup clash against Kidderminster Carolians.
It was a bright autumn morning for the match on the AGP pitch at Stourton Park and the home side also began brightly with two early tries.
Kidderminster could not contain Stour’s speedy breaks down the flanks, which put the visitors on the back foot. Despite conceding early KCs rallied and put the Stour goal line under sustained pressure but the defence held firm. The yellow and blacks were again outdone as the hosts turned defence into attack with crisp passing and powerful running to add to their tally.
The second half saw more Stourbridge scores with some clever kick and chase moves added to strong forays forward from the home side.
Stour were in no mood to concede the ball when in their hands and were determined at the breakdown to regain possession from KCs.
Kidderminster did not crumble as Stourbridge continued to pile on the points and were unlucky not to score.
Everyone of Stour’s players contributed to a good performance against a determined Kidderminster side the game ended with a final score of 48-0 to the home team.
