Camelot 22-8 Welwyn
CAMELOT first XI continued their fine recent form with a 22-8 victory at home to Welwyn in London North West Two.
The hosts made a bright start and Carl Buckingham sprinted round the visitors’ defence to score the opening try.
Welwyn responded immediately with a try of their own but the Camelot forwards then stole possession from a ruck and launched a counter-attack.
The ball was passed out to wing Adonis Marmaras who sprinted through the opposition 22 to score a try under the posts. Daniel O’Brien converted.
Welwyn then managed to work their way into the home side’s 22 where they won a penalty which was kicked successfully.
Camelot launched a series of attacks from the restart, but there was no further score before the whistle blew for half-time.
The hosts continued where they left off after the interval and a superb run and offload by Ross Willoughby created a try for Tom Aitken who crashed over.
George Adams wrapped up the win when he collected the ball from a ruck and stormed through the defence.
It was successful weekend for Camelot in general as the club’s other three senior sides also won.
The seconds beat Hackney seconds 32-12 and the thirds managed a 56-7 win over Harpenden fourths. Elsewhere, Camelot fourths beat Hampstead fifths 36-12.
