Southwark Lancers 16-13 Shooters Hill
3:59pm Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Sport
SHOOTERS Hill started their Kent One campaign at Southwark Lancers' Burgess Park ground with a narrow defeat.
The hosts went ahead with a try from their winger in the corner which went unconverted, but Shoots scrum half Harry Barham scored from a charge down, this also going unconverted.
Shoots piled on the pressure but had trouble finding their feet in the line out.
Alex Coates departed for an enforced rest during which the Lancers’ winger scored again.
A Lancers penalty took the score to 13-5 at half-time.
Barham chipped ahead to score two minutes into the second half, again unconverted.
Gareth Cross stepped up to slot a penalty only to see Lancers do the same.
Injuries and substitutions abounded and Shoots attacked the goal line winning a penalty but lost the decisive scrum in the final minutes which might have drawn the game.
