Well deserved Eastern Counties Cup win over a strong opponent
Managed to pull it back in the 2nd half
Bury kicked off at 12:32 into the bitter wind on this overcast winter's day.
Bury drive all the way to the Holt try line, which Holt defend magnificently until Joseph dives over the line by the right corner post to score (his 2nd this season) giving Ewan an impossible conversion attempt (0-5).
Bury push back again deep into the Holt half keeping Holt bottled up. A short lineout almost lets Bury through but are awarded a penalty instead. Bury form a maul and drive over the tryline but Holt manage to keep the ball off the ground.
Holt kick clear to the half-way line but Bury run it right back to the Holt 22m line, losing possession and allowing Holt to kick clear again. Holt follow up and push Bury back to their 22m line. Holt are awarded a penalty and kick to the Bury 10m line. Holt are awarded another penalty as Bury tip-tackle and lose a player to the sin-bin for 10 mins.
With 1 player down, Bury can't stop the Holt attack and let Holt score between the posts but Holt mis-kick the quick drop-kick and miss the conversion (5-5).
Ollie picks up a shoulder injury and has to be substituted. Holt make a break down the right wing to score near the posts and convert successfully. (12-5) Bury push back to half-way line where play continues until Holt break through to the Bury 22m.
Half-time score 12-5 to Holt.
Holt kick off and Bury immediately run it back and drive right through Holt's defence, allowing Joseph to score (his 3rd this season) by the corner flag. (12-10)
Holt kick off and play continues in the Bury half with neither side able to break through until eventually Holt break through the Bury defence and reach the Bury try line but drop the ball. Bury kick clear and play resumes in the Holt half, until Bury are awarded a penalty. Bury form a maul and drive over the line, but yet again Holt keep the ball from touching down.
TomB is injured and has to be substituted. Bury win a scrum in the Holt 22m area and pass right the way down the line allowing OscarF to drive over the line and score (his 3rd this season) by the left corner post (12-15).
Final score 12-15 to Bury St Edmunds
