Hornets U10's side travelled to Truro on Sunday to take part in this years Cornwall U10's Festival. Drawn against Saltash, Penzance B and Falmouth they played some excellent rugby. In the first game Ewan Gilroy-Simpson showed his usual power and strength, as Newquay were awarded a penalty in the Saltash half from which he brushed aside the Saltash defence to put Newquay in the lead. Shortly after a Saltash player raced away down the left wing but Jack Higginson was to make what must be the tackle of the season, diving across to intercept him and maintain the Hornets slender lead at the interval. Newquay surged forward early in the second half and it paid off as Saltash conceded a penalty from which Sol Hawkins went over to seal the win 10-0. Newquay began to get into their stride in the second game against Penzance B. Jack showed he had the same grit and determination in attack as defence as he forced his way over after Newquay were awarded a penalty. Ethan Morgan then collected the ball as it emerged from a scrum and showed good fleetness of foot to jink his way through to score. The second half saw some excellent rucking from Newquay before the ball was fed to Ewan who cut across field to the left wing to extend the lead. Newquay were dominating the game now and Ewan scored again after a period of sustained pressure to end the game 20-0. In the third pool game Newquay continued to impress. Another penalty saw Ewan add to his tally before the improving Newquay scrum won the ball deep in the Falmouth half with Sol Hawkins on hand to pick up and go over. The victory was assured when Perran Heamen made an excellent charge down the right. The ball was recycled from the ruck, Sol passing to Jack who went over to seal another win 15-0. Drawn against St Agnes in the Cup Semi-final it was a tense affair. St Agnes got the early score before Sol once again picked up from the scrum to go over and level. St Agnes took the lead once again before Ewan made a dramatic run the length of the the pitch to draw the Hornets level. It made for a grandstand finish with Newquay on the ascendance, but it wasn't to be. As the game finished at 10-10 St Agnes were to go through to the Final having scored first. However, undefeated on the day Newquay should be justly proud of their performance.
