Fullerians come from behind to beat Old Streetonians 34-24 in London Three North West
1:00pm Friday 18th October 2013 in Sport
Fullerians produced a storming second-half display to come from 21 points behind and beat Old Streetonians 34-24 in London Three North West.
The result leaves Fullers fifth in the table after five games but the win looked almost impossible after a disastrous first half.
A delayed start to the match didn't help the visitors who found themselves behind in a matter of seconds. Fullers quickly pulled their socks up however and a lovely break from fly-half Craig Duncan broke the home side's defence only for the last pass to be intercepted.
To add insult to injury the overturned ball was then kicked ahead and the bounce landed perfectly for the Old Street 15 to collect and score.
Fullerians were eventually rewarded for their pressure when Duncan converted a penalty.
Old Street however continued their dominance as Fullers second row Mike Macdonald was sent to the sin-bin for a professional foul and deservedly Old Street scored twice before the break to take a 24-3 lead.
With a full compliment of players on the pitch, Fullers improved and centre Paul Gooding scored twice early in the second half.
Fullers then went level when centre Dan Evans went over but the visitors weren't finished yet and wanted the bonus-point win.
They got what they wanted when debutant Connor Head found himself in space and outpaced the defence to score the winning points.
A superb comeback was rounded off in the latter stages as Jack Thompson popped up in the line to score in the corner.
l Tabard eased to a 25-7 win over Romford and Gidea Park in London League One North.
Cam O’Connor scored the opening try before Scott Stoba added another for Tabard.
Jermaine Ljieh touched down before O’Connor’s second sealed a bonus-point win.
