Haven 28-20 (16-8) Chorley

Once again Leroy Joe earned the Man of Match accolade. He opened the scoring in first half of this error prone performance by a Haven squad that failed to seize total control.

Joe's opener was converted by Holt. But soon Redford responded for Chorley, converted by McCulley. Chorley then inched ahead from a penalty. The off side rules didn't seem to apply for much of this first half as Chorley players took breathers regardless of where the ball was being played. Nippy Holt created a try and also converted his own effeort. Skipper Aaron Lester took charge to set up a try for O'Neil to leave it 16-8 at half time.
In second half Holt added a penalty following a neck tackle by a Lynx player.McConnel then made a try for the visitors, this was converted to make it 18-14. Leroy Joe then nipped and tucked and made his own solo try , converted by Holt. Wallace got a cheer when he bundled a Chorley defender into touch just five yeards out. Sadly this was not capitalised on and Holt took a knock which had him walked off injured. Chris McKinney then dramatically crashed in just by the corner flag . Dave Seeds failed this conversion. Bretherton got a consolation try for Chorley, which was converted.
