WELWYN Under-13s A returned to winning ways as they progressed through to the second round of the Herts County Plate competition with a 27-0 victory over Old Albanians B.

The Hobbs Way boys were quickly out of the blocks.

Aggressive performances from forwards Ian Forbes and William Hubbard and some incisive running from backs Dan Cope and Edward Boorn saw Welwyn playing the game at pace and on the front foot.

First-half tries from Hugo Henson, Jimmy Lawrence, Dan Cope and Judd Otene saw Welwyn take a commanding 22-0 half-time lead.

To their credit, OAs never gave up and for the opening 15 minutes of the second half they had Welwyn pinned back in their own half.

Welwyn stood firm and some great defence on their own try-line kept the St Albans-based side out.

Gradually the Welwyn boys began to re-assert themselves and a Gavin Brown try following some good work from Harry Di-Lieto closed the game out at 27-0.
