Winscombe started brightly

The Winscombe first team entertained Tiverton at the weekend in an attempt to get their new year season back on track after a series of disappointing results.

The home team, playing up the slope in the first half, started brightly and quickly moved into Tiverton’s 22. After a series of drives the visitors eventually infringed at the breakdown. From the resulting penalty Winscombe kicked to the corner. Winning the line out they set up a driving maul that was to shepherd No. 8 Will Thomas over the try-line for the opening score. Despite the swirling wind centre Sam Dearsley converted with an impressive kick from the touchline.

The remainder of the first half, however, was dominated by Tiverton who exploited every gap in the Winscombe defence. They proceeded to score four tries before the break, converting three to move into a commanding 26-5 lead.

Winscombe’s daunting challenge to get back into the game in the second half was not helped by the deterioration in the weather, with a strong westerly wind bringing in heavy rain and sleet as the second period began. Nevertheless, they set about their task with great enthusiasm and proceeded to set up camp inside the Tiverton 22. Despite being there for long periods in the second half, however, Winscombe failed to make any impression on the scoreboard. A resolute Tiverton defence thwarted all their efforts and the match played out to the end with no further score by either side.
