South West 1 West

North Petherton 24, Lydney 17

NORTH Petherton sit ninth in the South West 1 West standings after a 24-17 win over mid-table rivals Lydney at Beggars Brook on Saturday.

Jamie Adams snaffled an interception on halfway and sped under the posts for Pethy's opener, and No 8 crossed for the hosts' second try.

Alex Ogilvie powered over for a third, under a tangle of bodies, and winger Mike Stevens sprinted past the Lydney defence for the bonus-point score.

This coming Saturday sees Pethy travel to third-placed Newent.

Women’s South West 1

North Petherton Ladies 20, Devizes Ladies 10

NORTH Petherton Ladies moved into third place in the league table after a 10-point win at home to Devizes on Sunday.

Jess Webber got Pethy on the scoreboard with her very first try for the club, before Charlotte Woodman finished off a move that started well inside the hosts’ half.

Prolific try-scorer Woodman outstripped the defence once again for the home side’s third, and captain Rosie Wheeler rounded things off by powering over the try-line.

Pethy Ladies are next in action on Sunday, January 27 at Hucclecote.

Somerset Cup quarter-final

North Petherton Under-16s 19, Keynsham Under-16s 29

THIS game could have gone either way, but the Keynsham forwards that made the difference at the end.

Tries from Harry Saunders and Luke Hall kept Pethy in touching distance in an exciting match.

North Petherton Under-13s 0, Weston Hornets Under-13s 50

A HIGH-QUALITY Hornets outfit showed why they are on of the best teams in Somerset at this age group, but they were made to work hard for their victory against a resilient and committed Pethy.

The Mighty Oaks started strongly, holding firm as Hornets swung the ball wide at every opportunity.

It was not long before they went over for their first of 10 tries all scored in a similar vein.

Once again the score belied the effort and endeavour of the Pethy boys, who scrapped for everything until the end.

A BUSY Sunday at Beggars Brook saw Wellington RFC Mini Section visit.

A good standard of rugby was on show and the spirit of the day was epitomised by the Under-11s up against a very good Wellington side.

Player of the match Ashlee Roderick put in a huge number of tackles to deny Wellington’s excellent attack.

The mini section travel to to play Minehead next week.
