Penryn crushed Exeter Saracens at the memorial ground on Saturday, securing a comfortable bonus point in the process.
The five-point win was a much needed tonic for the Borough after a narrow defeat last time out and the extra week off due to the weather.
Penryn had to come from behind though, after having all the early possession the Borough turned over ball and the visitors pounced to take a five point lead and sound alarm bells amongst the Penryn contingent.
But there was to be no panic, as the home side slowly settled down, and responded minutes later when captain George Jones squeezed over from close range.
Jake Seviour missed the conversion, but was on target minutes later as his brother Andrew Seviour crashed through the middle to score under the sticks and give Penryn the lead at 12-5.
Penryn pulled further away after the restart with a Seviour penalty to extend their lead to ten.
The fly half added to his personal tally for the afternoon with a clever converted try at the end of the first half leaving the Borough only one try short of securing the all-important bonus point.
To their credit, the visitors hit back with a well worked score, albeit a sloppy one from the home side’s perspective to make it 22-10 in Penryn's favour at the break.
The second half was a different matter entirely. Penryn were on fire.
The home side got off to the best possible start when full back Josh Chambers rounded off a flowing move in the corner to secure the bonus point early on and effectively end the game too.
Seviour notched up the extras, and the Borough began to shift gear.
Exeter simply had no answer to Penryn's powerful forwards, who dominated the set piece and the dangerous looking backs who were making constant in roads to the opposition territory.
Penryn found themselves on the Exeter line once more and again had the pack to thank and the captain.
Jones powered over again, Seviour converted again as the riot continued.
The home side freshened things up at 36-10 to instant reward, as Joel Rose supported well from the back of a scrum and touched down for a first senior score.
Penryn added another three to keep the scoreboard ticking thanks to Seviour, but Exeter grabbed another consolation try with some slick work from their backs as they searched for a bonus point of their own.
It was a bonus point that would not materialise as Penryn put themselves well and truly out of sight as first Alex Ducker added to his collection with a good finish out wide, followed by another for Jake Seviour to finish his points tally at 26 for the afternoon.
A much needed win for Penryn who climb the table, they face Honiton away next Saturday.
