Sidmouth Under-15s too strong for Honiton

Sidmouth Under-15s were worthy 31-0 winners when they travelled to Honiton for a Plate Trophy fixture, writes Chris Woodruff.

Sidmouth were clearly ‘ready’ for the derby and made a flying start opening up a 12-0 lead thanks to tries from Turley and Mead and conversion from Harris.

The muddy conditions created handling and movement errors on both teams, but Sidmouth dominated play as Honiton had little to offer in attack.

Despite being a man down through Pearson being sin-binned, Sidmouth secured a third try, as Harris, kicking for territory and good pressure from the forwards forced a penalty from which Franklin powered over to secure a 17-0 half-time lead

The second half saw signs of movement from Sidmouth’s backs resulting in a try from Mead and a Harris conversion to extend the elad to 24-0.

The home side never really threatened Sidmouth for the remainder of the game and the scoring was completed when Franklin crossed late on.
