Cents were made to work hard for this latest victory which was a match of two halves.
Playing with the slope in the first half,Cents raced into a 29-0 lead just before halftime.Cents scored four well taken long range tries when they used their backs to devastating effect.Cents had been struggling to contain a big North Bristol pack and through quick turnover ball and running from deep in their own half they built up a lead which saw them through to a much relieved victory.
Cents scored their tries through Lian hemming(2),Rob Pinkney
and Lewis May
.Liam completed the Cents scoring with 3 conversions and a penalty.North bristol scored a converted try of their own just before half to give a score of 29-7 to the home side at the break.
After the break North Bristol dominated the match and through their forwards starved Old Cents of any ball and had the home sided defending for much of the half.North Bristol reverted to a tight forward game in the second half and scored two tries,one of which was converted and had the home side on the ropes.However the Cents defence stood up to the task and although outgunned up front managed to hang on for a win.
Cents won the match 29-19 and were glad for the win and also pleased with the bonus point,but they know they have still not clicked as a team.The Old Cents man of the match was again Michael Mathers as selected by the Vice Presidents who were watching the game.
Cents now move on to a local derby at the Gordon League and although the League are struggling this season,they will still provide stern opposition so Cents will have to be on their guard.
