Late penalty breaks Bea­cons­field hearts

RUGBY

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THERE was late heartache for Bea­cons­field in last Satur­day’s South­ern Coun­ties North derby at Mil­ton Keynes when they lost to a penalty given away in the dy­ing mo­ments of the game.

Dan Wilson put in Rob­bie Wal­dron for the open­ing try for Bea­cons­field, which he con­verted him­self, but a missed penalty proved cru­cial as MK stormed back to take the lead with two tries, one of which was con­verted.

The Bea­cons­field pack then drove over tight head prop Kwong Lin for a try which lev­elled the scores and, after a turn over ball al­lowed MK in a try which re­stored their lead, Bea­cons­field re­sponded im­me­di­ately with a move in the MK 22, which re­sulted in Callum Wilkin­son storm­ing over to again equal the scores at 17-17.

How­ever, with the fi­nal whis­tle just mo­ments away, MK were awarded a penalty op­por­tu­nity on the edge of the 22 which they took to snatch the win 20-17.

In the same di­vi­sion, there was also a derby de­feat for Drifters, as the Farn­ham Common side went down 31-0 at High Wy­combe, while Che­sham picked up a third Berks, Bucks & Oxon Premier win of the sea­son with a 30-8 vic­tory at Phoenix.
