Controversial 1 point loss .
Chorley Panthers 15
St Patricks 14
For the second time this season St Pats lost away with a late drop goal in this tie against Chorley Panthers.
Although a close game throughout St Pats should really have done better than this but the same problems that have affected performances all season remained with training sessions not being transferred to the pitch.
Pats fell behind to a couple of Chorley tries one of which was followed by a conversion that most spectators thought had fallen short. Importantly for Chorley the referee thought it was good.
Pats made a comeback with tries from acting half back with Liam Burrows scoring tries on 15 and 35 minutes, divided by Patrick Melling's 25th minute try and a Goal from Callum O'Neill making it 14 apiece.
With the Chorley Loose Forward having been sin binned for the last 10 minutes, the match really was there for the taking but St Pats could not convert their chances and allowed Chorley to get down field to take the spoils with a well converted drop goal.
