Ventnor RFC 1Xv 24-3 Alresford RFC September 2009 match report
Ventnor took some time to settle and gave away far too many penalties, one of which was converted to give the visitors a three-point lead.
A period of attritional rugby then followed with Ventnor slowly gaining dominance in teh scrums, with James Pemberton and his colleagues softening up the visitors’ back line with some thunderous attacks.
As a result of this barrage Marriott slotted a penalty giving Ventnor a 10-3 half-time break.
Ventnor continued to make ground in the second half and constant pressure led to a side-stepping burst from Ben Lush.
The final score was 24-3.
