Your News Mounts Bay 12 - Blaydon 0

Late withdrawals meant it was a depleted Blaydon side that made the long trip to Cornwall where they totally failed to cope with the conditions and rarely looked like scoring. Mounts Bay on the other hand revelled in the deep mud, sensibly kept it tight, and with two tries in the bag had the game wrapped up by half-time.

In their first real attack the Cornishmen moved it 40 metres with a series of powerful 'pick and drives' to set it up for lock forward Ben Hilton who crashed over near the posts, with Doug Sanft easily adding the conversion.

Robert Windle went close with a penalty attempt for Blaydon but the home side remained in the driving seat and deservedly increased their lead with a second try, again after good driving from the forwards. This time they reached the 22 before swinging it wide, and left winger Richard Bright touched down in the corner.

Facing a 12 point deficit Blaydon came out fighting with a number of forays into the 22. Move after move broke down however as they failed to retain possession, and lacking the services of leading try scorer Andrew Fenby because of a suspected broken toe, were never in danger of threatening the line.

Mounts Bay coped readily with everything that came their way, and by the end it was Blaydon who once more were hanging on. Not a successful day for the Crow Trees outfit, considerably out of pocket by having chartered a plane, not a point on the board, and its now four games since their last win in the league.
