LEDBURY Ladies Touch Rugby side came away with their first victory of this season's Super Sunday series.

After being beaten into second in the opening round the Herefordshire side replied in fine style at Stratford RFC.

Only 11 teams were able to make the tournament which meant two pool games to decide who fought it out for the Cup, Plate, Bowl or Vase.

Ledbury started with a bang and ran away 4-0 winners over Old Laurentians (from Rugby) before pushing aside Pershore 6-1.

That put them in the Cup Play-offs against Bredon and Wellesbourne.

Ledbury had lost to Bredon in their first tournament three weeks earlier, being beaten into second place.

First up were Bredon and after a close opening skipper Annie Hunter, seized upon an interception to run the length of the field to score just before the half time whistle.

Second half continued in a similar vein until a small space appeared on the left wing which Ledbury exploited and Hunter.

After a short break they took on Wellesbourne. Another nail-biting match ensued with both sides threatening.

Finally the deadlock was broken with a well-executed set piece putting Wellesbourne ahead. Through clever tactical play, Ledbury were shut down out wide and being starved of space. The only answer was to create space in the middle which again followed excellent territorial driving, culminating in a break through and a try to level proceedings at half-time.

Wellesbourne showed there tactical experience in the second half slowing the pace of their attack and then striking quickly to try and open up the defence.

With two remaining they succeeded and took a 2-1 victory.

Despite the defeat Ledbury were crowned winners due to scoring three tries to the others two.
