Once again Hertford were slow out the blocks in the first half. Despite most of the play being in the opposition's half handling errors and missed tackles allowed Ampthill to score two break away tries.
Hertford came back strongly in the second half scoring two well earned tries that were unanswered by our hosts. A bad tempered exchange led to a red card being given to an Ampthill player after he landed a punch to the head. Our boys behaved well in backing away and not escalating the situation.
The score stood at 12-12 until a late penalty decision allowed Ampthill the last kick of the match to score a winning penalty.
Now all we have to do is work out how to switch the team on in the first half as well as the second half!
