Otley take the spoils in last gasp win over Sedge

A late penalty from replacement Joe Rowntree gave Otley a dramatic win over Sedgley Park.

The visitors led 9-5 at the break thanks to the boot of Steve Collins, while Otley’s Paul Petchey scored the only try of the first period.

Home scrum-half Harry Skelton and Will Lees exchanged scores after the interval, but a try and penalty from Rowntree put Otley ahead.

The pendulum swung back and forth after the hour. Rowntree’s second try was bookended by Sedge scores from Matt Riley and Ben Black as the away side held a one-point advantage.

However, on 75 minutes, Rowntree’s influence on this contest continued as he landed a penalty after an accidental offside decision, to clinch the win for Otley.
