Lakenham Hewett Ladies were buzzing at the weekend after recording their first league win for two years.
The Lionesses beat Woodbridge Amazons 27-24 at Hilltops, with player-of-the-match Danni Pluckrose leading the way with a hat-trick of tries.
It was a special moment for all the players and supporters and especially coach Dee Mann, who has rebuilt the team and moulded them into a competitive outfit.
Lakenham started the game strongly, with tries from Pluckrose (2) and Josie Howl putting them in command before the Amazons hit back with a score of their own.
The home side led 27-12 at the break, with Chloe Halliwell touching down before player of the match Pluckrose scored again to cap a superb first half at No 8.
The hosts were unable to add any points to their tally after the interval, while the opposition closed the gap with a couple of tries, but the second score came late on and Lakenham saw out the game to claim a well-deserved success.
