Newquay made the journey to Penryn on Sunday in temperatures that were a test for the watching parents never mind the young Hornets. Before the match started the physically imposing Penryn side looked like they would provide a stern test but that wasn't to prove the case. Newquay took the game to Penryn from the off, Evie Longworth who was to have an outstanding game at scrum half, feeding the ball out to Eddie Pearce from a ruck deep in the Penryn half before he streaked away to score on the left wing. Penryn came back at Newquay but following a kick out from the Hornets half Ben Hunt followed up to steal the ball away before slipping the ball to Ben Henwood whose electric pace saw him streak away to widen the score. Ethan Morgan showed good speed himself to add another in similar fashion moments later. Ethan Reed, more used to brushing aside defensive lines close in to the try line, doubled his distance travelled for the season as he swerved past the entire Penryn defensive line (several times) to score a memorable try. The Newquay forwards were rucking well. Coupled with Sol Hawkins hooking prowess they were dominating the much bigger Penryn pack. Newquay constantly harried Penryn who continued to lose ground even when they had the ball and on the attack excellent support play amongst the backs saw Evie Longworth go over for a well deserved score. Two penalties in quick succession allowed Penryn to pull one back before half time but it didn't spark a revival. The second half continued in much the same vain as the first with Penryn once more on the back foot and as Newquay progressed to within two yards of the Penryn line a great offload from Ethan Morgan as he was tackled saw Eddie Pearce run on to double his tally for the day. Ethan did the double as well going over after Newquay won a scrum against the Penryn put in with Evie feeding him the ball. Sol Hawkins showed his strength and determination, taking the ball at a line out he forced his way through several despairing Penryn tackles to score. Two great runs from Arthur Bygrave and Jack Higginson carried the ball deep into Penryn's half once more late on, Ewan Gilroy-Simpson getting just rewards for his usual high work rate taking Jack's pass to forge through for the last try off the game. Man of the Match: Ethan "The Reed-anator" Reed.
