Alnwick 7 Sheffield 8
North One East
Alnwick took league leaders Sheffield to the wire today.
A superb effort by the whole team for the second week running saw just one point separating the teams at the final whistle at Greensfield.
Towards the end of a hard-fought match, a drop-goal in the last few minutes nudged Sheffield ahead. A drop-goal attempt by Burn in the final seconds drifted wide.
