Boston Rugby Club’s under 16s played their last home game of the season in a thrilling contest against Deepings and Stamford.

They lost 21-19 but it was a contest the young Blue and Whites could well have won.

Deepings scored a try in the opening minute in the corner which was followed by a good conversion.

The lead didn’t last long, as Joby Ancell powered over to score following a period of sustained pressure.

Ten minutes later, Boston scored again through Joe Langford, following a tap penalty, and Tom Hobbs added the conversion.

Deeping and Stamford added a penalty to reduce Boston’s lead to 12-10 at half time

Deeping started the second half as they ended the first and their hard work brought a converted try in the 48th minute to lead 17-12

Josh Cook collected a loose ball to score another try for Boston, with Hobbs converting again.

A period of sustained pressure from Boston followed and they were unlucky not to score.

The final points of the game went to Deepings and Stamford in the 62nd minute with a game-winning try following a charged down kick.

Jordache Stones-Blackman was the star player.
