CAMBORNE made it five National League Two wins on the spin with a convincing victory over Old Redcliffians after a superb first half showing at the Rec.

Playing down the slope the Cherry & Whites totally dominated the opening 40 minutes building up an unassailable 33-7 lead by the interval.

Despite the wet conditions the home side started with a bang as an early close-range attack through the forwards saw Ben Priddey driven over for Aaron Simmonds to convert.

With the ‘Town’ pack in dominant form, another forward surge ended when scrum-half Liam Jolly wriggled over for a 12-0 lead.

Next to cross was flanker Jago Sheppard popping up on the wing following a superb multi-phased handling move. Fly-half Simmonds knocked over the extras for 19-0.

The bonus point try arrived courtesy of a mighty shove from the home pack at a five-metre scrum that saw No 8 Aden Brassington controlling the ball and steering over to dot down as the goal line was reached. Again Simmonds added the routine conversion.

Still inside the half-hour, impressive young centre George Edson showed his strength to power through the visiting defence before diving in near the posts for another try easily improved by Simmonds.

Just before the break, the shell-shocked Old Reds mounted their first real attack of the afternoon from which they drove over for a converted score.

The opening quarter of the second half belonged to the visitors as they hit back hard with a brace of touchdowns to reduce the deficit.

On the hour with the score at 33-19, there was a lengthy stoppage as, unfortunately, Brassington had to leave the field with a serious leg injury.

When play resumed Camborne quickly increased their lead when left wing Alex Ducker cut through the cover for a fine try which Simmonds converted.

Though the visitors responded with a bonus point try the Cherry & Whites were not to be denied and wrapped up the scoring when their hardworking pack drove a maul fully 25 metres to crash over with hooker Priddey bagging the touchdown.

Final score: Camborne 45 - 26 Old Redcliffians
