Cheetahs can't keep up with Exiles


On Sunday the 28th June the Exiles Juniors took on the Hertfordshire Cheetahs in their 4th game of the season.

The young Exiles went into the contest with an undefeated record and hoped to stay that way as they continued their promising season. The game got off to a less than desirable start, as the cheetahs returned the opening kickoff all the way for a touchdown. 6-0 Hertfordshire.

The Exiles offense took the field and were unable to reach the endzone, turning the ball over and giving it to the Cheetah offense. The defense gave the first spark of the day, with strong tackling from Olly Gadd, Ian Whitehead and Joe Jebb, the ball was quickly returned to the offense, where QB James Cook found Max Chance for the tying score. 6-6.

The team continued to feed off of the defensive success, when CB Liam Riley picked off a pass and returned it 30 yards to the endzone for the go ahead touchdown. Conversion added by WR Yani Ourabah. 14-6 Exiles.

Excellent pursuit and relentless pressure from Savior Onuorah, Hamish Eliott and Jack Clark kept the Cheetahs on their side of the 50, for the entire first half. This allowed Max Chance to make an incredible one handed catch in the endzone during the second quarter for his second touchdown of the day. 20-6 Exiles.

Chance would later score yet another touchdown to make the score 28-6 Exiles at halftime. The second half started slowly, with multiple 4 and outs from the offense, and a few first downs let up by the defense, however, adjustments were made and the suffocating Exile defense sought to stop the Cheetahs completely. The Offense moved the ball on long drives throughout the second half thanks to great running from Sean Seeds, lead by blocking from Tom Lee, Ed Callow and Han Whitmore, but were unable to punch in another score until Yani Ourabah made a great catch in the back of the endzone, just keeping his feet in bounds late in the fourth quarter. This would bring the final score to Kent Exiles 34-6 Hertfordshire Cheetahs.

The Exiles next matchup will be against the second place East Kent Mavericks on Sunday the 19th July.
