Sidmouth Under-14s secured a deserved semi-final place in the Devon Plate in an impressive 25-17 win over a sizeable South Molton side.

Kicking into the wind, there were early signs for concern as the home side quickly went 5-0 behind.

Sidmouth rallied well however, and put a series of well worked passes together to give Mead the opening try before being substituted with a head injury. South Molton replied almost as quickly to reinstate the lead in a half peppered with handling and passing errors.

Sidmouth stuck at the task well and equity was finally restored as a purposeful Bagwell squeezed over.

South Molton then had a solid period of possession and a well worked training ground move resulted in a 17-10 lead to close the half.

Sidmouth played a much tighter second half and the ever present Cockayne quickly scored an early try.

Taking advantage of the wind, Sidmouth pinned South Molton in their final third for much of the half and despite a series of baffling penalties, made the pressure count as Skelton ran through to give the home side a 20-17 lead.

The momentum had clearly swung and with some decisive tackling notably from Harris and Fisher an excellent move lead to the outstanding Lowe appropriately clinching the game 25-17.
