Lancaster 19 - 24 Glasgow

A Lancaster side looking to avenge the sides overtime defeat in their last Tigers encounter got off to a lively start quickly racking up two scores with one conversion to go 13-0 up at the end of the first. The Tigers regrouped and looked stronger in the second but Lancaster struck again to finish the half 19-0 up.

From the start of the second the Tigers looked more aggressive and determined than in the first and set about repairing the damage caused by their lack of focus in the first half. Within the third period they scored three unanswered touchdowns from McCree, Grant and Bertram with a mixture of accurate passing and hard running.

With the Tigers one point down going into the fourth quarter, the game was on a knife edge. Lancaster found good field position close to the Tigers line but an outstanding drive by the Tigers defence saw the Bombers held on the line in two O-drives. The Tigers saw their hopes fading when they gained possession with 3 minutes remaining but some good running and a long pass to Ian Bertram set up the Tigers 11yds out with under a minute on the clock. The winning stroke came from a pass into the endzone for McCrees second touchdown of the day.

Lancaster had one final drive to try and get a score but a solid tigers D made sure no ground was gained and the win was assured.
