A tight match settled in the last 10 minutes
Hove fell behind in the first period to a well-worked Horsham try and conversion. We regrouped and scored the next two tries to lead 7-12 with 10 minutes of the game remaining. Then a strong break from Horsham earned them a converted try to regain the lead 14-12 followed with another try scored directly from the restart in a great solo effort from their centre. The final score was 21-12 to Horsham. Compared to last season when we lost heavily to Horsham this was real progress and we look forward to playing them again in the league in the New Year.
