Town opened the scoring with a McCully try . For long periods Haven failed to make any inroads on the visitors. To add insult to first half lethargy Beaumont made a clean break through the often sloppy Haven forwards. Forber converted. Haven fans booed off their side at the first half hooter. Just minutes after the restart Duffy and Marc jackson got creative and fed to Leroy Joe to score. Rudd converted. Then Marc Jacko stepped up a gear and scored again for Haven with Rudd converting. It showed the dirth of confidence that Haven then opted to kick a penalty awarded by ref P. Carr. Broadbent then opened up the scoring with a a try that was converted. Sice then used brute strength to worm his way through the Town defenders for the final try. Town gave an often more fluid and meshing game plan often making repeated drives that made the Haven defences loook embarrasingly sloppy.
