Camborne Colts 30 : 12 St Ives Colts
St Ives travelled away to Camborne for their second meeting of the season.
St Ives got the game underway. Camborne had lots of the possession in the first half and St Ives held them up, defending very well for the first 15 minutes. Camborne very much dominated the first half and managed to score 5 tries making the score 25-0 at half time. However, none of the tries were converted.
St Ives looked to improve on the first half and did that by dominating possession straight away and showing it’s a game of two halves’. St Ives were playing good rugby and made a break through with Peter Skeggs scoring his third try of the season, selling a good dummy move to confuse the home side and score.
St Ives continued to push hard into the Camborne half, playing much better than in the first half. They used good pod work from the breakdown gaining extra yards. Jake Clemson and Rory Whitehead led by example, smashing gaps in the Camborne defence.
The Hakes managed to score another try with a fantastic backs move. Centre, Luke Allatt, finished off the well worked move with a good attacking line scoring under the posts.
Unfortunately, St Ives were not able to bring the game back even though they played much better rugby in the second half. The final score was 30 points to 12.
St Ives Colts' next game is against Camborne Colts again in the first round of the shield on the 12th of March.
