Beaconsfield continued with their lead position in Southern Counties North league on Saturday, when they successfully overcame a strong Reading side 27-10. 

The visitors arrived with a strong pack and had obviously decided to try and deny the home team possession in their backs which were always a threat to them. The weather did not help the flow of the game particularly in the first half, but in the third quarter Beaconsfield showed their real talent and ran in the tries.

The match started with a push from Reading pack as expected resulting in an early try for them 0-5, until Beaconsfield then contained them in the 22. 

The game continued under the heavy conditions at a slow pace until the 30 minute mark when the home forwards broke the deadlock pushing Reading over on the right hand side for their first points, getting the ball down. Aled Lewis took the conversion for 7-5.

Then just before half time Beaconsfield gained a further three points through a penalty in the 22 extending the platform to 10-5.

As expected Reading came out determined to put pressure on the home side straight away but Beaconsfield gained possession and put the ball out of play which eventually resulted in a scrum. Reading managed one more try closing the gap temporarily.

From this point Beaconsfield showed their real threat with the backs moving the ball from midfield quickly and the centres unselfishly got the ball out to Dru Labri who then used his speed to go over on the left hand side 17-10, again Aled converted the try.

The winger then took the ball from a cross field kick which he took but the move was forced into a scrummage on the left side. From here Aled at scrum half was quickly on the ball facing a one on one and going over for 22-10.

At this point Beaconsfield were now showing their dominance and the forwards rolled the roll up on the right with number 7 Chris Creak finally getting down 27-10, unfortunately the conversion was just missed but a great win was sealed.
