Pipped at the posts
By Ian Meakin
Leek Lions hosted Trentham on Friday evening.
The first half was a very close contest with both teams exchanging attack’s with great defence. Trentham took the lead just before half time 0 - 7.
The second half was much the same with little between the two teams.Trentham doubled their lead after a penalty conceded by their hosts 0 - 14.
The Lions worked hard and they took full advantage after a Trentham player received a yellow card. The Lions Centre breaking through at great pace to reduce the gap
0 - 7.
With time running out the Lions were unlucky to not score with one try attempt been held up and from the resulting scrum another searching run from the Centres falling just short from some fantastic Trentham defence.
The Lions continued to apply all the pressure and were rewarded with a great try scored by their number 8. The Conversion attempt was kicked just wide of the posts Final score
