Your News Newquay win in the cold

It was a cold and breezy day that greeted the teams as Newquay entertained Hayle at the Sports Centre on Sunday. Winners of the Festival last season, Hayle were expected to provide stiff opposition, and so it proved. With both teams possessing healthey squad sizes two matches were played. In the first game an entertaining first half saw both sides fairly evenly matched but it was Hayle who took their chances. A loose ball from a ruck saw it picked up by their backs who showed a good turn of pace down the left hand side to go over in the corner. Both teams were physically strong and Newquay's Perran Heamen, Ewan Gilroy-Simpson and Ethan Morgan were all to make impressive runs at the Hayle line but were denied by some excellent defensive work before Hayle took advantage of a penalty and some sloppy tackling to extend their lead. With influential Ethan Morgan lost to injury just before half time Newquay lost momentum in the second half. Hayle took advantage and with their excellent support play and quick recycling of the ball paying dividends they doubled the tally to finish winners 20-0.

The second game saw some early handling errors from both teams as the cold wind made for tricky conditions. Newquay stuck to the task though and Lewis Hollings showed good pace as he cut across from the middle of the pitch to the right wing before leaving the Hayle defenders trailing on his way to the try line. Moments later more Newquay pressure gained a penalty close to the Hayle line and Eddie Pearce showed his usual grit and determination to force his way over on the left. Renewed vigour from Hayle in the second half saw them force Newquay back winning a scrum which they capitalised on as they jinked past the defensive line to score in the corner. Despite this the Hornet's maintained their composure. Once more on the offensive they were forced in to touch but took the ball from the line out against the Hayle put in. It was fed quickly to Ewan Gilroy-Simpson who shrugged off the attention of three defenders to force his way over and bring a final result of 15-5 in Newquay's favour.
