Coney Hill RFC 34 -v- Winscombe 1sts 28

Winscombe 1sts faced Tribute Western Counties North league leaders Coney Hill.

Winscombe 1sts travelled up to Gloucester at the weekend to face Tribute Western Counties North league leaders Coney Hill.

The visitors started brightly scoring the first try from a well worked move that saw flanker Will Thomas cross in the corner, Sam Dearsley adding the conversion. Coney Hill gradually asserted themselves, however, and scored three tries before the break with only a Dearsley penalty kick in reply.

The home team always looked threatening when they spread the ball to the wide channels and two further Coney Hill tries at the beginning of the second half seemed to have settled the encounter.

But as the game entered the final quarter and with Coney Hill’s large pack visibly tiring Winscombe took the initiative and pressed to finish the game on a high. A second penalty kick narrowed the gap a little but two tries in quick succession from James Flowers and Dearsley himself brought the visitors to within a score.

The last ten minutes was a tense affair with Winscombe pressing and Coney Hill defending for all their worth. The teams traded penalties at the death with the points gap remaining at six, the losing bonus point Winscombe earned may well prove to be decisive in their quest to stay in the league.
