Bridgwater & Albion II 17, Hornets II 45

THREE Hornets’ tries in the first 20 minutes set the tone for Bridgwater’s afternoon as they crashed to a 17-45 defeat.

Bridgwater finally managed to gain some possession, building through the phases before a moment of individual brilliance from Jon Hill, playing at fly-half, scythed through the Hornets’ line and raced in for the try from 45m, which he duly converted.

There were no further scores in the half, leaving the score at 19-7 to Hornets.

The second half started somewhat disappointingly for Bridgy with the kick not travelling the stipulated ten metres.

Hornets opted for the scrum, but Sam Knights intercepted the pass from the back of the scrum and just won the race to the line to touch down for a dubious score..

Bridgwater’s resurgence proved short-lived, though, as Hornets then dominated play, scoring a further 26 unanswered points, securing the bonus point along the way, before Barnett finished off some good play, racing in to score in the corner for his second senior try.

Albion entertain second placed Imperial at College Way next weekend, before their final game of the season away to Wellington on the Thursday night.
