Falmouth Colts 0 - Saints Colts 22
Saints recorded their first league shut-out of the season and their 3rd in all games when they visited Falmouth on Saturday.
St Austell continued the second half where the first half finished and despite an early rally from the home side again began to dominate. Saints pack were having it all their own way at scrum time and turned ball over on several occasions. Similar success was being had at the lineout and turnover ball in the Falmouth 22 saw Saints hooker Ben Mace bully his way over for a second Saints try. The conversion just skimmed the outside of the posts but Saints were now in the box seat and pushed forward at every opportunity. With some 10 minutes left on the clock some powerful rucking presented substituted scrum half rhys daniel clean ball which was spun though four pairs of hands for a classic backs try scored out wide by full back Sam Kendall. Semple converted for a 0-22 lead which Falmouth never looked like troubling.
Credit to the home side. They played the full 70 mins with passion and discipline and were unlucky not to get points on the board but it was St Austell that took the points and look forward now to next weeks local derby at home against local rivals Bodmin.
