Oh so close for the Chorley team today but great team spirit and some superb individual performances made for an entertaining game at Chisnall ...
The U16's are improving each week and they were unlucky not to come away with the win today. Leigh East scored two tries early on but then the Panthers shifted the ball across the park before Man of the Match Anthony Brown brought it back inside to power his way over. This was soon followed up with Richard Dennis who barged his way over to make it 8 v 10 at the break.
A lapse in concentration let the visitors in for a score straight from the restart but it wasn't long before scrum half Tom Sharp jinked over for a try which he converted to make it 14 v 16. Despite piling on the pressure the Leigh East defence held firm and there was no further scores. A great effort from the Panthers today with the whole squad contributing to a magnificent game of rugby league.
Next week we are away at Burtonwood.
