MEDWAY 2ND 6 CANTERBURY PILGRIMS 23
A combination of poor weather and even poorer decision making made this one of Pilgrims least convncing performances and the scoreline flattered them. The victory, however, was enough to keep them up with the leaders of of Invicta Division One. They took control from the start, but failed to take advantage of early possession! and Medway opened a six point lead through two penalty goals. The loss of Jack Weaver with an ankle injury was another setback but Canterbury eventually put away one of several chances with a try from Dan Gill. They went into the lead for the first time early in the second half as Ben Nash won a kick and chase for the second unconverted try. Medway started to apply pressure but with both sides battling wind and rain finding points was difficult. A yellow card for Alex Miller did not help Pilgrims but they eventually stretched further ahead with a kick, chase and carry from impressive cenrre Frank Morgan and Will Hilton converted the try. It was Hilton’s boot that did rest of the scoring as he landed two long range penalties to secure a win that must make Pilgrims take a hard look at themselves before their next outing.
