Tough Defence kept the Exiles in the game

The Kent Exiles Youth team suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of the London Blitz.

The Blitz are a large team with plenty of athletes in their sqaud, but not one that could not be stopped, and ultimately it was their defence that won the game as they suffocated the Exiles offence who could not find a way to move the ball despite several changes to personel and formations during the game.

The Exiles defence played well though, and gave the team a lead when Lee Baxter secured a safety early in the game. But as the game wore on, the Blitz wore them down and four scores were conceded.

All four blitz scores came through their running game, but all were after drives as the Exiles defence strove to keep their team in the game.

The Exiles now face another tough encounter next week as they travel to the Farnham Knights, last years beaten Britbowl finalists, before a few weeks break and then taking on the London Warriors.

Details about the team and upcoming fixtures can be found on the Exiles website at www.kentexiles.co.uk.
