Dorset & Wilts Division 1 North
Impressive Minety dispatch Cricklade
Minety 1st XV 32pts – Cricklade 13pts
Up the hill and into the breeze in the first half Minety stuck after 2 minutes. A blindside break by skipper Steve Brown turned the visitors and he was able to feed Elis Garland, who outpaced the defenders to score under the posts. Ash Windle converting.
Within five minutes of the restart a blindside break from scrum half Duncan Simpson saw him race away to score. Five minutes later it was Luke Radcliffe’s turn as he squeezed in at the corner to retake the lead. 17 – 13.
With only five minutes to go a driving tackle by James Stuart allowed Minety to wrestle the ball free and crash over for a try and 22 – 13 lead.
A breakaway interception by Dale Langdon with the visitors hammering the Minety line took the ball to half way before passing to Garland to finish off in the corner.
