Tows hang on for win

IN deteriorating weather Tows hung on to seal a hard-earned 24-19 victory against Peterborough at the final whistle.

Tows got off to a promising start and Chrissie George released Matt Yuil to score. James Falvey converted.

Borough summoned up a drive from a five-metre scrum and the resulting try and conversion levelled the scores.

Tows wasted several good attacking positions but a quickly taken penalty saw Dave Stocks score for a 7-12 half-time lead.

In the cold driving rain both sides struggled. Finally a lineout drive score for skipper Liam Wilkinson and a conversion by Falvey stretched Tows’ lead.

The Peterborough outfit came back with a try from a quickly taken penalty. But Tows looked to have made the game safe with a try from young prop Conor Cahill.

But a needless kick gifted possession to the Borough right wing who ghosted down the touchline and around under the posts, giving the hosts hope of a comeback.
