A last-play Michael Flowers try saw Seaham RUFC bag the four points against Prudhoe and Stocksfield after the prop drove the ball over the try line following a Seaham penalty.

Seaham managed to take back the game despite being a man down as John Dixon was shown a yellow card for a high tackle.

Prudhoe took the lead in the 34th minute of play when Daniel Whiley received a pass from Steven Henderson, who picked the ball out of the scrum, and ran it over the try line to score however Prudhoe missed the conversion.

Prudhoe saw most of the possession during the first half with Seaham struggling to keep the opposition out of their half.

Seaham bounced back quickly through the efforts of Flowers who took the ball over the line following a Seaham lineout in the 38th minute to bring the game level. Seaham could not convert the try.

However, Prudhoe immediately snatched back their lead in the 40th minute when Henderson intercepted a pass from a Seaham maul and ran the ball in at pace with Seaham unable to defend their line to leave the game at 5-12 at half time.

Seaham kicked off the second half and equalised again when Dixon scored a try from a Seaham scrum with the try being converted by Andy Hogwood.

Prudhoe took hold of the game once again through a penalty lineout in the 61st minute with Henderson converting but then Seaham managed to snatch a try back in the 67th minute but could not convert.

Prudhoe increased the gap even further when Seaham conceded a penalty which saw John Dixon dismissed which was scored by Henderson leaving the score at 17-22.

But Seaham were not out of the game just yet and grabbed the victory out of Prudhoe’s hands to take home the four points.

The win for Seaham takes them to 6th in the league with just one point above next weeks opponents Yarm.
