In a must win game, Chiltern fell just short to a strong Norwich side. The game started brightly enough, with Chiltern taking an early lead through a Kris Stephens 1yd run. (6-0) Norwich replied almost immediately when Shaun Norris caught a 17yd pass from Darren Bailey & with Mike Howling adding the extra point it gave Norwich a slim lead (6-7), a lead they would keep throughout the game. Norwichs' 2nd score came at the start of the 2nd Qtr. when Alexander Scott caught a pass from Bailey and raced 76yds to the endzone leaving defenders trailing. Once again Howling added the extra point. (6-14) Chiltern replied to this almost straightaway with a Stewart May 9yd run (12-14) and everyone concerned felt a shoot out was on the cards. They would not be disappointed. Firstly Michael Wilson scored on a 1yd run with Howling tacking the extra point (12-21), then Shaun Norris bagged his second T.D. of the day with a 19yd reception from Bailey, once again Howling kicked the extra point. (12-28) Chiltern were not to be denied and with time running out in the half Kris Stephens got his 2nd T.D. of the day with a 43yd catch & run from Suttling. Brendan Peek hauled in the 2pt P.A.T. from Suttling to end the half with Chiltern trailing by 8. (20-28)

The second half couldn't match the 2nd qtr. points fest but it came close with both teams scoring 12 points. Firstly Kris Stephens completed his hat trick with a 66yd catch & run from Suttling. (26-28) Norwich replied with two Mike Howling Field Goals 1 of 25yds (26-31) and 1 of 30yds (26-34). Not to be outdone Tony Ryan capped a fine running display with a 4yd T.D. (26-40) All scoring was complete when Kris Stephens got his 4th T.D. with another catch & run. (32-40) Although losing the game, Chiltern can hold their heads up after fine displays on both sides of the ball, Kris Stephens, 6 catches 174yds & 3 T.D.s, Rob Suttling completed 18 passes for 282yds & 3 T.D.s, on Defence, both John Phillips & Tony White had 9 tackles each. All in all some good displays to take to Ipswich next week.
