After giving up 12 points to the Saracens, Nick Allen scored the deciding try in the 22-19 victory. Alec Walters went 0-3 on conversions and Warren Wood was 1-1 in his placekicking duties on the last try by Nick Allen. On the last play of the match the Tigers gave up the final jab from Aurora, which was followed by a booming sideline conversion by the Saracens.
