2010 Under 15 Final Penallta Storm 32 Panthers 28
Penallta Storm won their first of two Finals on Saturday...
Penallta Storm won their first of two Finals on Saturday but it took a 17-minute Golden Point extra time period for them to secure victory over the Pontyclun-based Panthers.
David Alleyne weaved through to give them a fifth minute lead but Panthers hit back straight away. James Little went under the sticks with Levi Knowles converting.
Storm regained the lead when Craig Jenkins ran half the length of the field. Lewis Barnett converted and they extended the advantage when Elliot Keep, selling a few dummies on the way, sprinted a similar distance.
Further tries from Barnett and Davies before half-time gave Storm what seemed an unassailable 24-6 half-time advantage, and straight after the break Joseph Scrivens took advantage of a fortunate bounce to score in the corner to extend the lead to 22 points.
Then came the comeback as Dan Hill, Dylan Lewis, Kent Birch and Connor Farrar all scored in quick succession, three of the tries converted by Knowles to level the scores at 28-all.
And with many chances for each side in the golden point extra time, including two missed field-goal attempts from the Panthers, it was Storm's Elliot Keep who got the try that gave his side the title.
