Under-19s go down in opener

Bermuda Under-19 were defeated 34-19 by Brown University from Rhode Island in the first of a three-match series at Police Field at the weekend.

Bermuda's tryscorers were Chakote Wainwright-Basden, Micah Perozzi and Kamel Easton.

Donal Moynihan, who coaches the Bermuda Under-19 side, whose are scheduled to take on Brown in their second match of the series tomorrow, said: “It was a great performance by the squad, but the heat, the fact that it was our first game of our season and the opposition emptying their bench meant it was a true game of two halves.

“There was excellent heart and character shown.”

In the Nichol Shield, marking the final weekend of the domestic season, Police claimed a 31-22 victory over Renegades.

The holders may have been slight favourites, but it was Police who walked away with their fourth piece of silverware this season.

Their tries were scored by Dan Cole, Neville Zuill, Tommy Edwards and Corbus Vermaak, with two. Renegades responded with tries from Rich Cumbers, Peter Dunkerley and Alex Donkervoet.

Darryn Gillespie, the placekicking fly half, landed three conversions for Police, while Cumbers, of Renegades, kicked a penalty goal and two conversions.

In the women's Scully Cup final, Mariners beat Renegades 5-3 with a hat-trick of tries from Neeks Boden and single efforts from Alexis Barker and Gina Newson. Orla Haplin scored for Renegades.
