Losing Bonus point for 1XV as we miss out by 1 point!
Stockport's McGovern pinpoint kicking won on the day.
AK1XV (15) vs Stockport 1XV (16)
Sat 13th Jan, AK travelled the short journey across town to Stockport RUFC, aiming to put more points on their league tally, after the resounding and comprehensive 54-0 win last weekend against St Benedict's.
AK supporters witnessed another vastly improved performance from the resurgent AK 1XV squad, many of whom were returning from injuries that had hindered the team's progress during the first half of the season last year.
AK were so unfortunate not to come away with the win, a game that surely would have been won if both AK kickers had been fit.
A closely fought match, which saw AK and Stockport lock horns in a game of many stalemates and stand offs, in evenly contested game, with both teams going right to the wire until the last seconds of the match, with great team performances from both clubs, credit finally went to Stockport's "Guv'ner" Liam McGovern, as his pin point kicking, skillfully nudged Stockport just clear for a 1 point win, in a game that really should have gone AK's way.
Consolation, as AK gained a losing bonus point, which now moves them above Manchester RUFC and out of the bottom 3
