ST IVES 15
An Alex Ducker hat-trick helped Penryn get their season off to a flying start with a comfortable win over St Ives at the Memorial Ground on Saturday.
The Borough were never really troubled by the visitors, racing into a 15-3 lead at the break despite falling behind to an early penalty kick from Jamie Prisk.
Jake Seviour hit back with a penalty for Penryn, and Ducker pitched in with a couple of tries - one of which Sevior converted - to take Penryn into a comfortable half-time lead.
After the break Penryn pulled further ahead when Josh Chambers went over for a converted try, followed by another from Taron Peacock, and a third try for Ducker.
St Ives managed two late scores to take a little of the gloss off Penryn's performance, but this was a commanding performance from the Borough, who travel to Tavistock this weekend.
