South Molton 2nds 7, Withycombe 2nds 23

Withycombe 2nds made their first appearance of the season with the long trip to South Molton.

Their preparations were not helped with the breaking down of the minibus at Cullompton and that led to the game kicking off an hour late!

Withy opened the scoring when tactical kicking by fly half Will Hocking took the play near the hosts 5-metre line where prop Dave Wellbeloved bulldozed over and Hocking converted.

After a home infringement a Hocking penalty was slotted to send Withy into the break 10-0 up.

A bright start to the second half was rewarded with Gareth Price marking his return with a brace of tries.

A second Hocking penalty was also put away for Withy to lead 23-0.

The home side finally scored a converted try in the closing stages.
