Barnet Elizabethans slipped to their second defeat of the Herts/Middlesex League One season after suffering a heavy 30-10 loss at Hackney on Saturday.
The home side started strongly and had opened up a ten-point gap inside the first ten minutes of the game.
Elizabethans started to recover from their poor start and the visiting pack built momentum, however, they were unable to force a try.
Barnet’s forwards had a rolling maul but were denied the touchdown before two attempted pushover tries were stopped at the vital point of scoring.
Elizabethans did manage to get points on the board via a penalty from the boot of Matthew Harris but a late Hackney try gave them a 15-3 lead at half-time.
The second half followed the same pattern as the first with Hackney scoring an early try and then kicking a penalty.
Elizabethans were left frustrated as the hosts picked off their attacks easily. Another converted try guaranteed Hackney victory although there was a consolation for Barnet as Robert Cameron-Staff crossed and Sean Blake added the extras.
Barnet will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Kilburn Cosmos this Saturday.
