The Kent Exiles Youth Team (16-19 years) secured a sensational win in their first game of the 2009 season, by beating the East Kent Mavericks by a score of 28-14.

The first half saw the Exiles take a 14-0 lead with touchdowns from rookie Tobi Makinde and Chaz Mulvihill, and a conversion from Tom Mann.

The second half started badly, after Makinde was tackled in his own endzone for a safety, giving the Mavericks 2 points. But then junior team Graduate Jamie Prentice snagged a loose pass by the Mavericks Quarterback and returned the interception 40 yards for the touchdown, and a 20-2 lead.

The Mavericks came back into it again when a blown coverage gave them a passing score, and then later on a bizarre play they scored again after their quarterback fumbled whilst being sacked, and the Mavericks running back scooped up the loose ball and avoided tacklers as he ran in for a touchdown. The score was now 20-14.

Not to be denied though the Exiles duly scored again, when Makinde capped off a fine first game with a mazy 21 yard run for the touchdown, it was again converted, and the final scoreline of 28-14 was achieved.

Following the game Youth Head Coach Dave Pester commented "The Mavericks have a decent team, but we held our discipline and kept to our game plan to get the victory. It's a great start to our season, but there are a lot of hard games yet to come, starting in two weeks with our first home fixture against our local rivals the Maidstone Pumas".
