Epping Upper Clapton’s penultimate game of the season ended in yet another win as they thrashed bottom side Millwall 71-14 in London 3 Essex.

Reece Reed, Des Griggs and George Cook each ran in a pair of tries while Mitch Sinfield, Joey Mbu, Dan Smith, Dan Jones and Dom Merrett all went over too in an unstructured yet one-sided game.

Clapton registered the first try by the first minute when Reed opened his personal account of 24 points, but Millwall were quick to level proceedings as they aimed to put a halt on Clapton’s winning run.

The game was turning out to be extremely loose and plenty of mistakes from both sides meant that there was a general lack of continuity in the game that made it hard for either side to gain a proper foothold.

However, the hosts eventually proved to be too good and they raced into a 40-7 lead by half-time courtesy of two tries each for Griggs and Cook and a single scoring for Sinfield.

The second period began in exactly the same fashion as the first with Reed crossing for his second after just one minute of play and Millwall responding almost immediately.

The game meandered between the two sides for a while, with both trying their hardest to either put the game out of site or lay the foundations for a spectacular comeback, put it was the home side that eventually pulled through.

In the final quarter, Clapton exerted their authority and four more tries from Mbu, Smith, Jones and Merrett racked up the scoring to an impressive 71-14.

Seven of Clapton’s eight tries were converted by the untouchable Reed while Jones converted his own try to add to his personal tally.

This coming weekend sees Clapton end their wonderful season with a home fixture against mid-table Kings Cross Steelers.
