TWO tries in the final minutes denied any chance Waterloo had of taking this match against second-placed Harrogate.
The home side showed great resilience, fighting their way back from 17-3 down to give themselves a chance at 17-13 despite Liam Reeve hitting the upright with two penalty attempts.
Waterloo fought their way into the game with a try from new signing Matthew Lowes, the prop going blind after good rucking play by the pack. Reeve added the conversion with a penalty early in the second period closing the gap to just four points.
Waterloo were having the better of both possession and territory but could not find a way through before tries from Sam Bottomley and Noel Millikin sealed the 29-13 win for the visitors.
WATERLOO are away to Chester this Saturday, kick-off 5pm.
