An excellent first-half performance helped Wadebridge Camels to a pretty comfortable 34-22 home win over Tiverton.
Cornwall hooker Matt Ballard was the star with a hat-trick of tries as the Camels bounced back well from their defeat at St Ives.
He also started the move for a glorious opening score, with his looped pass creating an overlap on the left, and good hands by Adam Blackmore and Dicky Dawe ending in Will Pengelly side-stepping the last defender, with Danny Thomas converting.
Two Ballard tries, and another conversion and penalty by Thomas, gave Wadebridge a 22-0 interval advantage, but Tivvy responded with a Matt Down penalty and try by Tom Skelding.
However, two touchdowns in the space of five minutes from Ballard and Joe Pretty, one converted by Thomas, put Camels out of sight, before Tivvy added two late scores through Elliott Howells and Skelding again, with Down converting both.
