Chingford Under-15s lose 19-17 to Upminster
4:00pm Friday 4th October 2013 in Sport
Chingford Under-15s opened their league season with a disappointing 19-17 defeat to an excellent Upminster side despite a desperate second-half fight-back.
Having trailed 12-0 at the interval, Chingford showed great determination and after a fine run and pass by flanker Daniel Linton, Myles Chrisostomou, forced the ball to make it 12-5.
Upminster then scored another converted try but their opponents threw caution to the wind and yet again dragged themselves back into contention with two tries from Josh Oranu-Noah and Andreas Constantinou.
Chingford could have snatched an unlikely victory at the death but they were unable to work the ball to Conor Hurst in space.
