Occies unable to hold on in tough friendly

MMT4 opposition too strong in closing stages

As Hackney 4s were unable to field a team for the scheduled Middlesex Merit Table 6 fixture we were pleased to be able to welcome Old Isleworthians to ODP for a friendly. Isleworthians play in MMT4 and, although it has not been a successful season for them in that league, they were always going to provide a tough test for our 3rd XV.

Occies controlled the first half, running in four tries and adding a single conversion to lead 22-10 after 10 minutes. The second half started in similar form until the strength of Old Isleworthians showed through, not only preventing Occies from adding any further scores but also adding 27 points of their own.

Next Saturday Occies travel to Twickenham for the final MMT league game of the season. Occies have already qualified for the play-off semi-finals to be played on 24th March.
