Chosen ones are the kings of the two Hills
BERRY HILL 15 CHOSEN HILL FP 17
CHOSEN Hill got back to winning ways in Western Counties North after a last-minute converted try ensured victory at Berry Hill.
The Brookfield Road men took the lead after 14 minutes when centre Josh Pettifer waltzed his way over for a fine individual try which was converted by number ten Andy King.
But four minutes later the hosts levelled the scores when a powerful driving maul ensured they touched down near the posts with the conversion making it all square.

Chosen then lost flanker Tom Gyde to the sin bin for a tackle offence but Berry Hill were unable to capitalise on their man advantage after failing to score from two penalty chances.
Half-time arrived with the scores level but seven minutes into the second half King missed the simplest of penalty goal attempts from in front of the posts.
It was Berry Hill who were next to score though with a penalty of their own on 65 minutes.
When a Berry Hill player was penalised for hands in a ruck King made amends for his earlier miss with a penalty goal to once again tie the scores.
Then with minutes remaining, Berry Hill struck what looked like the winning blow when their left winger finished off a flowing backs move with an unconverted try in the corner.
But Hill refused to concede that the match was beyond them and when Berry Hill'a flanker was binned for a tackle offence Chosen took a quick penalty and drove play upfield into the home 22.
Quickly recycled ball from the resulting ruck was picked up by number eight Ian Riddel who barged his way over from ten metres out to dot down and level the scores.
King duly added the conversion with the final kick of the match and the win moved them up to seventh place in the table.
This week, Chosen travel to Bristol for another league match against Keynsham.
