Kenilworth started strongly from the first kick off, with Jack Gibson catching the kick and making a powerful run towards the Old Halesonianís line. Jake Burrows then pushed forward a probing kick which was pounced on by Sam Hobbins for the first score of the game
Kenilworth continued to apply pressure and the team effort was again quickly rewarded with a penalty which was ably converted by Will Maisey.
With eight points on the board Kenilworth seemed to be in the driving seat but a succession of penalties were conceded which squandered the possession won by the strong pack and a persistent Halesowen were eventually rewarded with a try.
Kenilworth rallied and regained the territorial advantage so it was particularly disappointing when just before half time and against the run of play a simple handling error again allowed Halesowen to run in another try just before half time.
The Kenilworth team were again stung in to action at the start of the second half and the pack started to exert their dominance winning a succession of scrums and mauls driving the ball well into the Halesowen half. Decisive bite was added to the forward attack with the addition of Bobby Thompson who showed once again how difficult he is to stop when he has sight of the try line. Halesowen had no answer as he powered over for a try in the left hand corner.
With only a three point margin Kenilworth had their supporters on tenterhooks for the last quarter of the game. However, a missed Halesowen penalty kick from near the half way line which fell short was they final opportunity and Kenilworth defended well to secure the win and maintain their progress in the National Colts Cup.
