Two late tries helped Barnet Elizabethans claim a 26-14 home win against Old Actonians in Hertfordshire/Middlesex League One.
The visitors went ahead through an early penalty but Elizabethans quickly responded. David Leadbitter combined with Sean Blake down the right ring and the ball was offloaded to Adrian Todd who went over close to the posts. Matt Harris was successful with the conversion.
The opening period was well contested and Barnet scored a second try from an Old Actonians attack.
Robbie Cameron-Staff intercepted a pass and raced almost the full length of the pitch before touching down, Harris again added the extras.
Actonians continued to press and their efforts were rewarded with a penalty goal and then an unconverted try to move the score to 14-11 at the interval.
After the break, the visitors tried to break through the Barnet line and only last ditch tackling denied Actonians two tries.
The away side did kick a penalty to level the contest and kept up their pressure before Elizabethans rallied in the final quarter.
From a lineout, Barnet drove forward and second-row James Oram went clear through for and his side's third try.
The hosts then claimed a bonus point. Blake hoisted a chip kick forward and captain Peter Moulton collected and ran over. Harris converted to seal victory for Elizabethans.
