Saturday 27th September
Kingston 23, Chipstead 20 (L)

Kingston made a dramatic comeback on Saturday, trailing by 14 points with 10 minutes to go to secure the win with the last kick of the game. With a number of players out, Kingston struggled in their usually good set-pieces, which limited their attacking opportunities.

Two early penalties by Larry weeks and tries from Chipstead meant Kingston were trailing 6-20 with ten minutes to go. Two converted tries in 8 minutes, one from Alex Hughes who chased a sliced kick and a second by Chi Kavindele who drove through the defence to score, levelled the score 20-20.

The kick-off was collected and Kingston attempted to run it out, only to give away a penalty. Chipstead kicked wide of the posts, but Kingston, determined to go for the win, decided to run it out. Chipstead then conceded two penalties taking Kingston to their half-way line. Up stepped Harry Bettinson, to put in a massive kick to slot the ball between the posts and secure a valuable early win.

Raynes Park cried off last minute, so presumably K’s will be awarded the points.
