GREYHOUND Ladies got their revenge over title rivals Tewksbury Ladies as a Kirsty Harrison try gave them a narrow 5-3 victory.

Tewksbury who sit in third, a place behind Greyhound, won the reverse fixture earlier in the season but faced a determined outfit on this occasion.

Tough playing conditions saw wind and rain lead to many handling errors allowing Greyhounds to dominate in the scrum.

The first half continued to be a tense encounter with both side's defence preventing any breaks.

Well placed kicks from Sarah Bevan and Bonnie Smith took the pressure off, not allowing Tewkesbury any chance of scoring.

At the end of the half the visitors gave away a penalty in front of their posts, which Tewksbury kicked to give them a 3-0 lead at the break.

Greyhounds came back firing in the second half with solid defence and some huge tackles across the entire team putting Tewkesbury under pressure and forcing errors.

The Greyhound Ladies spent the last 30 minutes of the game in Tewkesbury half determined to get the win.

Breaks were made but Greyhounds were still short of the try line.

After a tense second half the visitor's determination put Kirsty Harrison over the try line to win the game.

The victory leaves Greyhound Ladies in second place and five points behind leaders Banbury Ladies, but with a game in hand.

Greyhound host Hardwicke & Quedgeley Ladies on March 17 before welcoming Wellingborough Ladies to Hereford Racecourse on March 31.
