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.
