A LATE penalty broke Old Yards' hearts as their stuttering start to Midlands Division 4 west (north) continued.
They will be hoping for a upturn in fortunes when they travel to Burntwood tomorrow.
The hosts started well as Seymour Seaton opened the scoring with Ben Honey converting but Willenhall fought back with an unconverted try.
After the break a fine touchdown from Jo Patrick put Yards in control and they looked like holding out until the visitors' winger evaded four tackles to crash over the line for another converted try.
With just five minutes remaining Willenhall scored a decisive penalty to give them a narrow 15-12 victory.
