Blues beaten in tight battle

8:02am Wednesday 11th December 2013

Division three west

Haverfordwest 7

Tycroes 15

HAVERFORDWEST battled all the way against visiting Tycroes and were in with a chance of winning throughout a hard-fought tussle.

The visitors took an early lead with a try from flanker James Ogden, which centre Carwyn Richards converted.

The Blues fought back but full back Ashley Sutton missed two kickable penalties - before unluckily missing out on a try when the referee deemed he had been beaten to grounding the ball by a Tycroes player after kicking ahead.

But Haverfordwest did get back level when a driving maul saw flanker Jonathan Mason score in the corner. Sutton converted from out side.

Richards then kicked a penalty for Tycroes on the brink of half time to give his side the lead again.

And in a hard fought second half, it was Tycroes who grabbed the only and decisive score when centre Chris Lemon sliced over from close range.
