Your News Blaydon 40 - Mounts Bay 7

Blaydon maintained their 100% home record with another comfortable, yet at times disjointed 5 point success, but for their Cornish opponents it meant a continuation of their own unenviable record of having lost every game thus far.

Mounts Bay conceded 2 penalties in the first 2 minutes, both converted by Blaydon full-back Charles Raynor, but then took control and the home side had to pull out all the stops to protect their line for the next 15 minutes.

Winger Andrew Fenby eventually broke the siege with a length of the field break and then went clear again from the scrum to leave Sean Tomes with a simple touch down. A second try was then added on the half hour when they moved it quickly from a line out for Martin Shaw to release Fenby with a beautifully weighted pass.

Blaydon were then at their best in the closing minutes of the half with Ben Mercer supplying his centre colleague Shaw and then popping up to take the return pass and cut through for an excellant score. By the interval the lead was up to 28 points with try No 4 from flank forward Scott Riddell after much handling, conversion from Raynor, and a cricket score looked likely.

Disappointingly however Blaydon went right off the boil and it took them until the 24th minute of the second period to get back on track with another Fenby effort after shrugging off 3 challenges en route to the line. Brendan Daniel, the other winger then picked a pass off his toes to storm over for a 6th try but the visitors were to have the last word.

With the Blaydon skipper in the sin-bin they hammered away at the line until the final minute when Sam Parsons powered over in the corner and Dan Hawks added the conversion to give then some slight consolation on the long trek home.
