Bitter Pill for the Bulldogs
June 13 2004

Batley caught Haven napping in the first half, but cheered on by the Kells End crowd the home side took the game by the scruff of the neck and kept play in the Batley half for much of the second period.Drive in first half...Obst ready for the offload

In the first half Hill scored first for Batley after a Haven defensive error ran the ball into touch. Then Haven's own Hill responded thanks to a feed from Lester. Nanyn converted. But Batley were the more pacey side in this first half and moved the ball about to generate a try from Richardson after two Haven players failed to tackle him. Eaton converted and then added a drop kick to give the half-time scoreline 8-13.

Initially Batley still moved the ball about better and Bryn Powell scored. This was however the Bulldog's last score as Haven moved up a gear and took hold. The possession stayed largely in the Batley half of the firled from here on in. Nanyn broke the log jam powering across. He converted his own try. Broadbent, who had a superb game throughout, drove in at the corner and nanyn converted (20-17) as the Kells End sensed the game had dramatically turned.

Nanyn scored a further try , followed soon after by a Craig Walsh touchdown.
