Exmouth Nomads secured their second merit table win of the season beating Ivybridge 2nds 28-12 in a physical encounter.
The Nomads started slowly conceding a series of penalties and from one infringement, they shipped an early unconverted try.
The set-back served to lift the Nomads to step up a gear and they were soon on the score board themselves when a good drive from Ash Reid followed by quick ball for the backs resulted in Kevin Rodwell scoring and Lloyd Murrin putting away the conversion.
It was soon 14-5 when a quick tap penalty from Nathan Budd allowed him to scamper to score in the corner and again Lloyd Murrin converted.
A solid scrum then allowed Murrin to go wide for Rus Sayer to use his pace to score under the posts. Once more Murrin converted and the Nomads led 21-5.
Murrin then produced a moment of individual magic to run in under the posts from his own 10-metre line. He also converted his try and Nomads trooped off at the break with a 28-5 lead.
After half time Ivybridge and the Nomads both produced sustained pressure but good defence kept both teams out until five minutes from the end when Ivybridge scored under the posts the try was converted for a final score of 28-12.
On Saturday Nomads are at home to Newton Abbot 3rds.
