Second half comeback shocks Hensingham

Hensingham got off to a flyer in the first period of their home fixture and led 20-4 at the break, but the wheels fell off in the second half as Wath Brow stormed back to steal it 32-24.
Harvie Hill, Reece Connolly, Jake Rothery and Sam King all ran in first half tries for Hensingham, of which Noel Branthwaite landed two conversions.

Wath Brow's only points in the first half came from Harry Wilson with a four pointer.

Liam Lithgow started the fight back for the Hornets when crossing the home side whitewash early on in the second half and with Morgan Ackerly tagging on the extras, the Brow were in double figures but trailing 20-10.

Another two quick touchdowns from Wilson to complete his hat-trick, of which Ackerly goaled one, and the Brow were level at 20 apiece.

Hensingham then threw everything at their opponents to try and gain a foothold in the game and it paid off minutes later with Jack Telford going over in the corner, for 24-20.

The game was now in full flow and could have gone either way as both teams showed some fantastic skills.

But, with Hensingham pinned in their own 20 metre zone, Ackerly somehow sliced through a gap in the home side's defensive line to touch down and after adding the conversion, Wath Brow edged ahead 26-24.

The Hornets finally sealed the game with only a few minutes left on the clock when Colton Chisholm slammed his way through serval defenders before touching down to confirm his teams winning try and with Ackerly adding the conversion, Wath Brow had the points in the bag, winning 32-24.
