Borough took the honours in the big second team derby match on Saturday (December 5).

For the second year running they overcame arch rivals Peterborough Lions seconds to advance to the semi-finals of the Hunts and Peterborough County Cup.

They took the honours 18-3 after a fiery tussle at Bretton Park.

After soaking up some early pressure, Borough opened up the scoring with a fine team try finished off by winger Ryan Williams and converted by Will Cook.

Despite strong running from Lions, Borough’s defence was rock solid as usual and Lions found it impossible to break through, their only score coming from a penalty.

Cook kicked superbly in difficult conditions and slotted a penalty midway through the half, and when Luke Smedley crashed over for a try just before half-time, it looked as if Borough might pull away.

However, despite being behind all game, Lions never gave up and Borough’s only second-half score was a well taken penalty from Cook.

Andy Barringer was outstanding for Borough and there were quality performances from Cook, Cliff Casbon and stalwart prop Bruce Morley.
