EXMOUTH Colts scored another half century of points as they defeated Tiverton 57-12, writes Tom Parry.Sam Reid struck early with a try having taken advantage of a great offload out of the tackle by Joe Parkin, and Shaun Fayter's successful conversion saw the Cockles into a 7-0 lead.The home side were enjoying all the early territorial advantage together with greater possession of the ball and the lead was increased when Dan MacLeod finished off a well worked move and again Fayter added the extras to take the side 14-0 ahead.Then the forwards got in on the act with some excellent controlled driving mauls and fast rucking that allowed the backs to play smooth running rugby. A break near the line by back row James Bartholomew resulted in another try, unconverted this time, and a 19-0 lead.Fly half Fayter then crossed over and converted to further enhance the advantage before some fast and clinical play in the backs and an off load from centre Adam Morris put MacLeod in near the posts and the Fayter conversion took the young Cockles into a greater lead.The half ended with a sixth try, this time from Kevin Rodwell. Fayter converted once more and the home side trooped off with handsome 40-0 lead at the break.The second half began with the Cockles continuing to dominate. Quick handling, coupled with controlled forward play, ended with Jake Argent powering over in the corner.In the second half Kevin Rodwell switched sides and he scored for Tivvy and with the conversion it made it 45-7.Tim Green then brought up the Cockles' half century before the same player added another, converted by Lloyd Murrin, to take it to 57-7.But Rodwell was not finished and he crossed over for another later consolation score for Tiverton, his second in their colours and his third overall in the match, to leave the final score 57-12.
