CUP ROUND-UP: Brixham continue good Devon derby form

18 Nov 2019 14:07 | Devon RFU

BRIXHAM continued their good form in Devon derbies to beat Ivybridge 40-29 on Saturday and move up to second in the Senior Cup standings.

All three of Brixham’s South West Premier wins this term have come against county rivals.

They got a great start at Astley Park on Saturday to lead Ivybridge 26-5 at half-time thanks to tries by Jack Bond, Callum Smith, Billy Pinkus and Tom McLean.

Ivybridge’s only first half points came from a Jay Toogood try, but after the break they got to within four points of Brixham thanks to tries by Jay Geraty, Robin Luscombe and two from George Wilson.

But Brixham, who had Ed Goodman scoring in between Ivybridge’s four second half touch-downs, sealed the win when Russ Morris crossed late on.

In the Devon Intermediate Cup, Kingsbridge continued their dominance with a 68-10 home victory over Honiton.  The hosts ran in 10 tries. Honiton had taken the lead with an Ollie Cave try but they could only add one more during the match, which came courtesy of Ben Small.

Bideford moved up to second in the Devon internal table after beating Teignmouth 24-18 in competitive match at King George’s Field. Bideford managed three tries with Teignmouth crossing twice.

Paignton moved to the top of the Devon Intermediate Shield table after a narrow 11-6 win at North Tawton on Saturday. All the scoring at Taw Meadow came in the first half where a George Palk try proved to be the difference between the sides.

Exeter Athletic moved off the foot of the internal Devon table after edging South Molton 26-25 in a thriller at Oil Mill Lane.

Exeter had been 19-7 up at half-time thanks to tries by Dan Mather, Ethan Barnaschone and Jed Cockram, but after the interval South Molton went 25-19 ahead with Reece Eury, Dan Smith and Julian Taylor scoring tries for them and Ben Smart kicking the rest of the points. But Exeter snatched victory with a late converted try by Mather.
