Hove v Heathfield
Top of the Table Clash
Wow! Another tight game and finish!!
After only 4 mins Heathfield lost their biggest forward to an ankle injury.
Hove had much of the possession but on the first occasion Heathfield had an attack, Miggi put in a great tackle but got hurt in the process and came off.
Against the run of play Heathfield scored on 25 mins but were unable to convert (0-5).
2nd half started in a similar fashion with Hove in possession and after a busting run, Jake broke 4-5 tackles and went in next to the post on 36 mins. Jamie converted (7-5).
Although Hove continued to dominate possession, Heathfield managed to disrupt on 2-3 prime positions!
For 20 mins no points were scored but after Heathfield camped out on Hoves line, they finally went over in the corner (7-10).
In the dying seconds of the game, Hove won a penalty 24 mtrs out but fairly straight and Jamie did the business again under pressure to tie the match 10-10.
Mixed emotions as Hove probably had 70-75% possession but on the other hand were behind until the last kick of the game!
Well done boys for hanging on in there.
Today, all the forwards were "Man of the Match!" But also thanks to Jamie for playing 10 for the first time this season and Oliver for moving to Full Back.
