7:52pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in Sport
Falmouth Eagles secured a slender victory over Newquay Hornets at the Recreation Ground on Saturday, winning the game by just a single point 22-21.
After their humbling last weekend Newquay were looking to bounce back with a decent performance, and they did just that, pushing the Eagles all the way.
But Falmouth are improving rapidly under new coaches Phil Angive and Graham Whitmore, and they were able to hold on stubbornly to take the win and move up to fifth in the league.
Elsewhere Hayle swept past league newcomers Veor, winning comfortably by 48 points to 5.
