Bonus point elusive for Chosen Hill Former Pupils against Yatton but relentless Western Counties North run continues
Yatton 14 Chosen Hill FP 28
CHOSEN’s sixth consecutive Western Counties North victory brought them everything but the bonus point.
Tries from flanker Tom Gyde, wing Ed Higgs and back-rower Ryan Collier extended a league winning sequence that dates back to November 17.
Three penalties from fly-half Andy King ensured Chosen continued in the rich vein of form that started in the wake of 15-13 home defeat to North Bristol almost three months ago.

But just when the visitors were licking their bonus-point lips Yatton came alive – and ran in two late tries to deny Chosen that four-try boon.
King opened the scoring for Chosen with a long-range penalty after five minutes.
King’s fine break from inside his own half yielded the first try, flanker Gyde cutting a neat line to cross near the posts, with King converting.
Further penalties on 30 and 35 minutes from King built Chosen a hefty 16-0 half-time lead.
Number eight Marc Riddel burst out of his own half after the restart – and great follow-up play from centres Matt Elston and Josh Pettifer set wing Higgs away for try number two.
Minutes later Collier added Chosen’s third try after a flowing move involving backs and forwards.
All this happened inside the hour, leaving Chosen nearly 30 minutes to conjure that fourth score.
But, drive as close as they might, the visitors could not muster that elusive try.
And with ten minutes to play Yatton broke out of defence and raced under the posts for a smart converted score.
The home side then quickly produced another converted try on the stroke of full-time to add a fully merited respectability to the scoreline.
