Wendens Ambo retained both the U11 and U8 Cambridgeshire County Cups at Wisbech on Sunday.
It was the fifth year running that Wendens have won the U11 competition.
They stated their intentions early with shut-out wins over Shelford and Huntingdon to book their place in the quarter-finals. Their last eight tie against Peterborough was forfeited as Wendens led 8-0 at half-time, setting up a semi-final against the hosts.
A 3-0 victory booked a cup final date with Shelford. A terrific performance from Wendens saw them run out 4-0 winners and keep the number of tries conceded to zero.
The U8s were just as ruthless, scoring 26 tries in three games to reach the semi-finals. Wendens led 3-2 at the break and managed to edge a scoreless second-half to win a nail-biting tie.
In the final, St Neots couldn’t hold back the tie of pressure from Wendens and eventually wilted to a 7-3 loss, handing the defending champions the title for the second straight year.
