16 Sep 2019 12:36 | Devon RFU

THE second week of the Kitworld Devon cup competitions produced some close and surprising results.

In the Devon Senior Shield, Crediton scored a late converted try to pick up a full five points at fellow newly-promoted side Sidmouth.

Sidmouth had been 28-23 up going into the last couple of minutes but Crediton ended up winning 30-28.

There was an equally exciting ending to the Devon Intermediate Cup match between Teignmouth and Honiton at Bitton Park.

Teignmouth had been 24-7 up early in the second half but Honiton hit back and snatched a 26-24 victory thanks to a late try by Harry Wright. Ollie Cave, Arthur Banks and Ben Small had also scored for the visitors. Teignmouth, though, did pick up two points for scoring four tries and finishing within in a score of their opponents.

Kingsbridge secured the biggest cup win of the season so far by stunning Tiverton 77-15 away at Coronation Field.

In the Devon Intermediate Shield, North Tawton and Paignton made it two wins out of two.

Having overcome Tavistock in their opening game, North Tawton ran in seven tries to beat Topsham 50-15 away at Bonfire Field. Will Lethbridge got two of their tries, with Kev Dennis, Jordan Cornthwaite, Luke Dennis, Ryan Gross and Matt Dennis also scoring and Gary Sizmur kicking six conversions and a penalty.

Paignton triumphed 21-0 away at Tavistock thanks to two second half tries by Steve Worth after Jordan Hodge had scored in the first period.

There were no matches played in the Devon Senior Cup this weekend.
