The 2nd half saw the visitors raise their game and at the 40 minute mark scored again to take the lead, 8 to 12. As time starting to slip away it looked like The Pirates would lose their first game of the season, but right at the death Man of the Match, Vinnie Martinelli bulldozed his way over the line to score. Donahue was successful kicking the extra points to make the final score 15 to 12.
