CAMBORNE deservedly recorded a first away success since their return to the National Leagues coming out on top in a 13-try thriller against Hornets in Weston-Super-Mare.

The visitors led 6-0 early on courtesy of two regulation penalties from the boot of fly-half Dec Simmonds before Hornets seized the advantage with a brace of converted tries.

The Cherry & Whites then responded with a purple patch of points scoring in the seconds quarter that saw them go over the goal line on four occasions to rack up a try bonus point.

Alex Ducker was first to cross wide out before Town’s forward power delivered a quickfire brace of catch and drives dotted down by replacement prop Declan Prowse and front-row colleague Tommy Southworth.

Josh Matavesi converted one of the scores and on half time the Fijian international tapped a quick penalty to crash over for a solo try to which he also added the extras for a 30-14 interval lead.

The opening quarter of the second half belonged to the hosts as they hit back hard with three converted tries to snatch the lead at 35-30.

From that point, Camborne took charge of proceedings dominating territory and possession for long periods.

Centre Matavesi went over to level the scores before persistent pressure was rewarded when left-wing Ducker again touched down wide out.

Going into the closing stages the visitors stretched their lead to 12 points when all-action flanker Jordan Nicholls showed his strength to touchdown near the posts with Matavesi converting.

Late in the game, Hornets bagged a second losing bonus point with a converted try but the Cherry & Whites were not to be denied their victory.

Final Score: Hornets 42 - 47 Camborne
