Robbed by Mr Martyn.
Haven 30- Leigh 34

Cup semi-final
June 27 2004

Haven opened scoring with a penalty and the home side made a promising start but soon Leigh scored against the run of play and Phil's son David Larder scored. He took the opportunist opening after a headbutt on a Haven player that the ref failed to notice.
That man Turley converted. Turley then scored two tries and converted in the stiff breeze.(2-18)


Jamie Marshall then had a wonderful gifted ball from a Leigh mis-pass. He legged it with the Leigh pack baying at his heels. Nanyn converted ((8-18)

A smooth pass from Joe set up Wes to see Haven fight back.
Danny Halliwell responded for the visitors to leave it 14-22.After the turn around Haven fought back and Jamie Marshall again showed pace to score making it 18-24. Tensions rose as Damian Munroe replied making it a nail biting 20-28. Sice had a great chance but Leroy Joe was unable to take the off-load. But soon after the pressure paid off and Sam Obst , who deserved his Man of the Match spurs broke through to score (pictured). Nanyn converted and this plus penalty left it a hung 28-28. A lucky award of penalty gave us the narrowest lead at 30-28 but then Mr Martin went over after slipping the Haven defences.Attendance was 2049 and the big draw winner was Mrs Karen Atkinson netting £10,000.
