Amersham & Chiltern produced a gutsy win at the weekend, holding off Old Priorians 25-23 at Weedon Lane.

Chiltern went off like a rocket and great handling from the forwards gave outside-half Matt Heeks enough space to get the ball wide to Jack Kenyon.

Kenyon ran strongly and, just as he was about to be tackled into touch, managed a clever reverse-pass to Tala Petelo who dived over the line for a try in the corner, which was beautifully converted by Stuart Pearham.

Despite an OP fightback, the score was 20–11 to Chiltern at the interval.
The second half saw Chiltern increasingly dominant and it was no surprise when they were able to score again with a try for Kenyon wide out on the left after excellent play from both George Bartlett and Jordan Scott to make it 25-11

However, Priorians were playing good rugby and were in the Chiltern 22, camped there and trying to force a comeback. . Chiltern were clearly tiring after defending for so long but they grimly held on for an excellent win.

Chiltern were frustrated not to have scored the bonus point try but nevertheless another win against very good opponents and defeat for Colchester has opened up a gap between third and fourth with Chiltern comfortably occupying third place.
