Milton Keynes were edged out by a single point at home to High Wycombe on Saturday.

High Wycombe were the dominant side for most of the first half.

The City defence stood their ground for the first 20 minutes before Wycombe were able to score the first try of the afternoon.

The visitors continued to dominate for the first half an hour and they were able to score of their second try through taking a quick penalty although the home supporters would argue that there was a knock on during the process. The conversion was missed due to all the Fountain charging down the kick.

With the city’s first decent attack of the game after 35 minutes they were rewarded with a try.

Ollie Fountain was again involved and was the man to put the ball over the try line in the corner.

Phil Powell made an excellent kick which resulted in the half-time score being 7-10.

Milton Keynes were much more dominant in the second half of the game.

Despite this they were unable to take advantage of their possession and in fact it was High Wycombe who were to score next with a breakaway try.

City continued to dominate the game but cold hands and a wet ball meant that errors occurred and it was only in the last minute of the game that they were able to score the final try.

This wasn’t quite enough with Wycombe winning the game by just one point.

Despite the loss, City remain in fifth place in the league.

City hit the road next Saturday to take on bottom club Swindon.
