Tigers hold off Lions fightback

Sedgley Park held off two spirted fightbacks from Peterborough Lions to return to winning ways in National Two North.

The hosts went 21-0 ahead after tries froim Thomas Bedlow, Mark Goodman and Jamie Harrison, but the Lions responded to cut the lead to 16 points.

A brace from Thomas Lewis and a penalty from Ben Young gave the visitors a route back into the game, but Sedge took it up a notch once again as Andy Riley and Max Skofic both touched down.

With Sedge’s advantage now 31-15 with just over 10 minutes to play, the visitors once again mounted a response and their determination was rewarded with two bonus points.

Christian Edbrooke and Alex Ioannou both crossed for the Lions, but it was too little too late to complete a remarkable comeback.
