Colts Reach Cornwall Cup Final

Launceston Colts. 24 pts Camborne Colts. 5

On a bitterly cold Super Saturday afternoon the CABs Colts overcame a resilient Camborne side to again reach the final of the Cornwall Cup. Despite never really getting out of second gear, the Colts won by a comfortable margin thanks to determination and persistence. The first try came as the CABs spurned a four on one overlap on the left to get Leion Cole over the line to the right of the posts. Apparently this was an astute use of their 'intelligence' to provide the left-footed kicker, Will Pharo, with a simpler kick! He duly converted to make it 7 - 0. Piran Gallington pounced on a loose ball to secure possession and set up a try for Joe Stansfield. He had forgotten to score on the correct side of the posts, so the conversion was missed! Half-time score 12 - 0. The true level of intelligence became clear early in the second half with some silly penalties leading to the visitors' only points of the game, an unconverted try. A yellow card then followed to put the CABs on the back foot. Despite this, Leion Cole, sponsored by KFC bargain buckets?, showed his deadliness from 5 metres to drive over and restore the 12 point lead. Some excellent recycling through the phases and offloading in tackles led to a Charlie Short try. Will Pharo converted to round off the scoring 24 points to 5. On to St. Austell next for the final, well done and good luck lads.
