Fakenham Foxes turn on the style to beat Hitchin
Fakenham Foxes 15, Hitchin 5
A STRONG second half display earned Fakenham Foxes victory against Hitchin.
Hitchin arrived with only 14 players and the game commenced 14-a-side.
It was clear after the first 10 minutes this would be an evenly matched game, with both sides working hard to get the first try. It was a scrappy first half but the Foxes got a penalty in front of the posts which Sarah Wheelhouse kicked with ease.
Sandie Toher, in her first game of the season, produced a fantastic performance at hooker.
