Stoneygate enjoyed thier best game of the season so far when they showed real character to beat the previously undefeated Shepshed 27-19.

After walking over most teams in LRU Division Three this season, Stoneygate rose to the challenge of a tight match.

After a tense first half, a fantastic move by the backs saw Tom Archer’s cross-field kick magnificently caught by winger Henry Bridgwood who made great strides towards the line before being held up. But he off-loaded to Phil Beech to score. Beech added a second before the break.

Shepshed took a 12-10 lead in the second half, however Stoneygate produced three great tries, two from new wonder winger Steve Farrow and a great individual effort by Richard Deacon, to win.
