Home side Aylesbury despite having plenty of possession were overwhelmed by Beaconsfield playing on their 4G pitch on Saturday in an exciting game which produced some very good rugby from the league leaders. This result leaves Beaconsfield now 10 points clear at the top with the Buckingham game being played on the 7th April.
Beaconsfield were quick off the mark with an early penalty then came their first try from Drew Labri on the left wing decisively scoring, beating defence opposition with the conversion from Aled Lewis 0-10.
The second try came on the right wing from Callum Wilkinson an excellent try with loads of support and Aled finishing for 0-17.
Next move from the pack carried the ball down the left eventually going over by Sam Cartwright in the combined effort and Aled once more converting 0-24.
Beaconsfield had built a good platform and now needed one more try for the bonus point.
Aylesbury then tried to break out but again but their left winger was brought down just before half time.
Following half time Aylesbury came out on the attack but were stopped short of the line, Aled then took the ball from the base line and ran it up the left to half way minimising any danger. It was at this point he suffered an injury but then recovered.
Again the home side tried to move forward but were stopped again, eventually after several phases they did go over for a try which was converted 7-24.
Next a second penalty to Beaconsfield from a ball out of the ruck, Aled converts 7-27. Not content number ten Freddie Pugh then scored a breakaway try easily pushing the score on to 7-32.
The Beaconsfield then took control carrying the ball ten metres without much trouble. This forced another penalty for Aled taking the score to 7-35.
A few good attacks next from Aylesbury which were well defended from the visitors both in tackling and moving the ball out from the line. They succeeded in one final try, well taken by Freddie Pugh again and converted moving the score on to 7-42. Beaconsfield did not let up in play forcing their opponents back up field.
A deserved win for Beaconsfield producing real quality Rugby.
