Match report: Southampton 2nd XV v Ventnor Lions, 28/10/2017

Southampton 2nd XV 37-48 Ventnor Lions Written by Andy Teague With the 1st XV having a week off the mighty Ventnor seconds made the long journey over to Southampton on Saturday to take on a strong Southampton side. A strong start to the first half showed Ventnor had learnt from previous games with Captain for the day Sam Dawson leading a strong offence. However at 40 minutes the score was almost level with several break away try’s scored by Southampton. The second half saw Ventnor come back strongly with Southampton keeping them honest and the score being very close. Several excellent try’s scored over the match with Roberts, Lines and Edwards scoring doubles. With Ventnor old boy Harris keeping the backs in check a first win for the mighty Ventnor lions, with many more predicted for the future. This Saturday will see the first home double header of the season with the 1st XV hosting Bognor and the 2nd XV taking on Kingsclere.

Match report: Ventnor 1st XV v Ellingham & Ringwood 1st XV, 07/10/2017

Ventnor 1st XV 12-21 Ellingham & Ringwood 1st XV, 07/10/2017 Ventnor suffered another defeat this week at home to Ellingham & Ringwood. The home side started slowly and conceded a number of tries early on with errors on their part, allowing the visitors to build a strong lead. Ventnor eventually realising they were in a game woke up and started playing some good rugby. They shored up their defence and attacking drives from the forwards were working well getting over that gain line. It wasn’t long before a debut try for Liam Roberts came after some good work from...

Ventnor RFC 1st XV 25-0 Alton RFC 1st XV, 05/03/2016

Ventnor’s last home game of the season, probably didn’t start as well as the big home support would have liked with the wind blowing across the pitch and hailstones beating down. With the home side giving away a lot of penalties Alton were able to gain a lot of territory but couldn’t turn it into points because the Ventnor lineout was solid and disrupted Alton’s chances. It took the home side a good 30 minutes for the home side to break Alton down with a penalty from Fergus Kenny and a try from Todd Riches, Kenny converted. One of...
