Morganians snatch last-gasp victory
9:00am Friday 13th September 2013 in Somerset Sport
Morganians 17 - North Petherton 3's 12
MORGANIANS completed their pre-season campaign with a hard-fought 17-12 victory over North Petherton III.
Pethy took an early lead after just ten minutes; however, Morganians struck back on 20 minutes as James Fox kicked a ball through the Pethy defence and chased it down, beating the full back, to dive on the bouncing ball.
Fox followed up with the conversion.
Morganians added to their lead when Sam Carter crossed in the corner, following some quick hands form the backs. The score at half-time was 12-5.
Pethy drew the game level mid way through the second half with another try out wide, but Ryan Rossiter won the game for Morganians as he latched on to a loose ball to run in a 50 metre try in the final minute.
Morganians kick off their season next week away to Minehead.
