BELSIZE Park were thumped by second-placed HAC at Regent's Park on Saturday despite keeping tabs on their high-flying visitors for the bulk of the first half.
HAC started well and were soon ahead with a converted try.
BP refused to capitulate and hit back with a series of penetrating runs from the back row, resulting in a brace of penalties, the first missed but the second converted.
The hosts continued to push forward, only for the ball to be turned over to the HAC full-back who ran the length of the pitch to score in the corner.
