EXMOUTH Cockles under 8's squad travelled to Okehampton at the weekend for their final fixtures of 2009.

In the first game a strong Okehampton side beat Exmouth convincingly by 10 tries to 3.

The hosts dominated the visitors with fast running and extremely good defensive play.

Despite persistent surges forward by the Cockles, the home side held their defensive line well and were very well disciplined.

Try scorers for Exmouth were Max Handford, Stewart Masters and Ollie Jones, whilst there was some great support play provided by Owen Tidball who continually looked to charge forward.

The second game was a much closer affair after the Cockles had become accustomed to the freezing conditions, holding a much better defensive line which allowed the hosts far less freedom to move in.

Harry Sprague and Owen Tidball played well for the visitors, running directly forward through the Okehampton defence.

A superb try was scored by Arron Lee who charged through the hosts' line.

The contest finished with Okehampton the winners by nine tries to five.

The Cockles' scorers were Thomas Preece, Arron Lee, Stewart Masters, Owen Tidball, and Ollie Jones.

The Exmouth side and their coaches now take a well - earned break over the Christmas period.
