With Amersham choosing to pick to run down the hill to start the game it started scrappy and Southgate really struggled to get out of it.
The first try came from Amersham and they used their first half advantage of the hill to good use when they scored a second and third to make it 15 -0 with around 30 minutes gone of the game.
Southgate had to react and atleast get something before the break to keep in the contest and that came as half time struck with Keith dancing around their back line on the wing to bring a glimpse of hope to Southgate 15 - 7
The second half came with now Southgate having the advantage of the hill and it werent long before laurence price bowled over for another try, Shanes converstion then made it game on 15 - 14
Southgate went through the phases crashing up with the forwards before getting a penalty on their 5 for our captain Nick to bundle over a try from the penalty.
15 - 21
Amersham gave everything they had towards the end of the game but Southgates defence were unbeatable and the game ended 15 - 21.
