Colts win tight match against Ivybridge

Colts win tough encounter away to Ivybridge

Launceston Colts came out on top of a tough encounter away to a very strong Ivybridge team. In the first half Launceston played against the elements - uphill and against a strong wind - but this didn't phase the blacks. From the kick off Launceston enjoyed a period of sustained pressure and territory eventually scoring the opening try through Aiden Jacob following many phases and powerful running by the pack. Launceston were then forced to defend for a long period but kept their line in tact, eventually relieving the pressure and breaking away to score an excellent team try through Charlie Wevill. Neither of the blacks tries were converted so as half time approached and with Launceston leading 10 nil Ivybridge mounted a series of attacks and were only held out by a desperate last ditch joint tackle in the corner by Harry Brewerton and Greg Gillbard. In the second half despite now playing with the conditions Launceston allowed Ivybridge back in the game by giving away too many silly offside penalties and making poor decisions at key times. Ivybridge scored two good tries showing the benefits of running straight and fixing the defender before putting support runners into space. Both tries were converted putting the blacks 14 to 10 behind with less than 10 minutes to play. Launceston raised the tempo and following many phases prop Rory Cinnamond crashed over to score under the posts. The try was converted by Greg Gillbard giving Launceston a 17 to 14 lead. The blacks managed to see out the game relatively comfortably to record a very good away win. This was a real step up for the team and bodes well for the tough fixtures ahead.
