Morganians slip to defeat
1:00pm Monday 14th October 2013 in Sport
Morganians 16 Tor 19
MORGANIANS narrowly lost out on getting their third win in a row, with a narrow defeat to Tor.
The Morgs forwards were all over Tor at the start of the game, but it was Tor who scored after their winger broke down the line and scored in the corner.
Will Hopkins reduced the lead five minutes later with a well converted penalty, bringing the score to 5-3.
Tor only increased their lead before half time with two well worked tries by their forwards giving them a 16 point lead at half time. The second half was completely different, with Tor barely getting hold of the ball.
Morgs completely ran the second half and this paid off when James Fox took the ball after a great break by the Morgs forwards and finished neatly, after running between two opposing players.
Will Hopkins converted this and continued his fine kicking form with another two penalties bringing Morgs within three points of Tor.
However, they couldn't break down the defence and get the win.
