Good Win in Wycombe Friendly as Windsor Cancel League Match
By Simon Hammond
Third Game of the Season against High Wycombe...and more to come!
In a rescheduled match at Wycombe after Windsor canceled the league fixture, we arrived for our second away match of the season against local rivals Wycombe. Wycombe dominated territory in the first half but Marlow went up by two tries, a close range one from Tremmers and then a curving run from Ben Smiley
. Wycombe's pressure was rewarded with a deserved converted try and Marlow went into the break at 7-10 up, minus skipper Lewis who was yellow carded when he was deemed to deliberately knock-on a pass from Wycombe.
Straight after the kick-off, Wycombe scored and converted, taking the lead at 14-10. With five changes, the shape of the game changed for Marlow and there were fine performances by Will Wright
and debutante Toby Yate
as well as Scott Kennedy
and Mo Najeeb
. Ben Smiley
was rewarded with a second try, converted by Hughes, followed by some excellent forward play, rounded off with Louis Kunzig
going over the whitewash with Hughes adding two points. The best was to come with the pack winning the ball and Hughes fizzing a long pass to Smiley who looked to be going for a hat-trick but selflessly offered the scoring pass to Russ Pearce. A super match!
