It was a slow start for the home team, with Blowpipes scoring early to take the lead at 0-5. It took a while for Saracens to get some control of play, but it came and we started threatening the line a few times, without finishing. Perseverance finally paid off with a successful penalty kick, putting points on the board to close the gap to 3-5. After that though, two quick tries by the opposition on the back of some sloppy play and basic errors by Saracens, saw the first half end 3-15.
The second half started saw some changes in the back line and six of our younger players in action. A more focused team effort, great line speed and tenacity led to two tries in the first 15 minutes and it was all square at 15-15.
With 20 minutes left in the match, Saracens took the intensity up another notch and simply wore down the opposition, pulling away with a great penalty kick and two tries to end the match with a convincing win.
Full Time : KL Saracens 28 – 15 Blowpipes
