Bowdon 2nds vs Chester 3rd XV 12-10
Saturday February 10th 2018
With 4 mins to go and scores at 12 : 10 in Bowdons' favour.
The Mighty 3s reclaimed the ball through a knock on advantage on their own 5m line, knowing time was against them the team proceeded to work their way back up the pitch from the scrum to try and take the game.
Possession switched sides a couple of times but with the clock ticking down to zero the Mighty 3s forced an error, won a penalty for offside just to the left of the posts and 10m out.
With the ref saying it was the last play, the captain opted to take the kick to hopefully steal a famous victory on the road. Unfortunately it wasn't our day as the kick missed the upright by the smallest of margins.
