A change of pitch to narrower confines infkuences an exciting contest decided by one score.

Avonmouth Old Boys 24 Chew Valley 22
A game of two halves when Chew Valley dominated the early exchanges with tries from Tom Byran on 3 minutes, a Bryan penalty on 11 and Joe Webb on 18 folowed by Bryan's second with reply from scrum half Connor Power converted by Sam Thompson.
With a neck injury to prop Ben Waterman dictating a move to a narrow reserve pitch before the break the structure of the game changed. Although Bryan crossed for his second close to half time to take his side 22-7 up the second half was a different game. The bounce of the ball favoured Avonmouth and with the Chew Valley kicking game misfiring two quick scores from Charlie Reynolds operating at 15 and 10 closed the gap, both converted by centre Archie lGibbs, on in the centre as a replacement..
A Gibbs penalty with 5 to go nudged fhe hosts in front as Chew Valley suffered from missing crucial tackles close to the breakdown and not looking after the ball.
a Gibbs penalty with 5 to go racked up the tension as Chew Valley pressed and with the clock in overtime a series of rucks took the visitors to within a drop goal or penalty terittory. Witn Avonmouth casuLties littering the field as the pace of game told a Bryan drop goal was charged down to give the spoils to the hosts.
