Women’s Championship South East Two: Beckenham 17 Hampstead 20

Hampstead ended a run of two straight defeats in the Women’s Championship South East Two with a thrilling 20-17 success at Beckenham.

Wing Emily Taylor scored an early try for Hampstead, while some good pressure in defence made it look like the visitors had got off to a good start.

Beckenham, however, hit back with a try of their own to leave the sides level at 5-5 heading into the interval.

Hampstead started the second half strongly with another couple of good tries, the first from Jen Richards after a few barnstorming runs and the second through fullback Chrissi Ranke, who made an excellent break to score under the posts.

Beckenham replied with a couple of scores of their own late on in the game.

As such, the final few minutes were dominated by a big shift in defence from Hampstead to hold onto the lead and close out the game after forcing a knock-on.

Hampstead next host Meday on November 18.
