Cents come from behind to secure latest win.

Cents just about kept up their unbeaten after they had to come from behind to win against a good Trowbridge side.Trowbridge have lost their opening three matches,two of them in the final stages of matches after being in the lead for most of the games.In fact in their previous match they run league leaders Newbury close,going down in the last 10 minutes and this showed Cents would not have an easy game against their visitors.
Cents started off strongly scoring two quick unconverted tries,however by half time they were 10-15 down as Trowbridge fought back with a try,penalty try plus a penalty to lead at half time.
Then at the start of the second half Trowbridge scored an unconverted try for a lead of 10-20 and at this stage the home side were looking at their first defeat of the season. However Cents bounced back scoring two tries one of which was converted for a 22-20 lead for the home side and shortly after the away regained the lead by converting a penalty.Score going into the final stages 22-23 to Trowbridge.
Cents won the game when they converted two penalties in the final 10 mins to secure another bonus point win and Trowbridge at least got a losing bonus point for pushing the home side so close once again.Final score 28-23 to Cents and Trowbridge's first win must come soon after today's performance.
Cents point scorers were Shay Morgan 2 ties and further tries from Joe Preece and Sol Farrer.Shay Morgan converted two penalties and one conversion.
