St Pats won this hard fought game after going behind early to a try from a kick through. St Pats first try came from Jamie Bristo bursting through from 15m out, converted by Sam Leach
. Soon after John atkinson
intercepted and raced 90m to score under posts again converted by Leach. Chorley hit back scoring another try from a kick this time a chip to the corner, try was converted. The second half saw St Pats forwards take charge and give a great platform for stand off John atkinson
to show his creative skills, fashioning try's for Sam Leach
& Dan Gregory, with Leach converting his own try. Next came the try of the game after powerful runs from props Chris Newton
& Steve Ormershaw, Brad Ibbison
broke clear from his own half stepped the fullback brilliantly and out paced the cover to score, Leach converted. With the score at 12-28 the it should have been finished off but silly penalties & ball turnovers let Chorley fight back to 22-28 with two late tries. Outstanding for St Pats was loose forward Reece Sedgwich, valiant in attack & defense closley supported by Jamie Bristo & tackling machine Andrew Bennett.
