REPORT: Bath United 30-17 Bristol United

Bristol United fell to a tightly-contested 30-17 defeat to Bath United on Monday evening.

George Watkins, Auguy Slowik and Ryan Edwards touched down at the Recreation Ground as the visitors went down in the Aviva A-League.

Bath went ahead when Darren Atkins raced in under the posts following a dominant five-minute spell for Bath United.

And the home side doubled their lead soon after as Kane Palma-Newport burrowed over from close range, while Hastings slotted the angled conversion.

George Watkins handed Bristol a route back into the game on the quarter hour, intercepting a long pass to accelerate in from thirty metres.

Two Adam Hastings penalties put Bath 20-5 up before the interval, but Auguy Slowik dotted down after the break to put the visitors within eight points.

With less than fifteen minutes remaining on the clock, Ryan Edwards squeezed over for an unconverted try as the Bristol United fightback looked to have gathered momentum.

But another Adam Hastings penalty, closely followed by Max Clarkโ€™s try under the posts gave Bath United valuable breathing space and confirmed a third successive A-League defeat.
