Seventh heaven for hosts in Reds mauling
CINDERFORD scored seven tries as they overcame the challenge of Redruth in a highly entertaining encounter.
The home side had to defend their line in the early stages, but they moved upfield and opened the scoring when Lewis Beer went over, with Alex Frame converting.
More pressure near their opponents’ line saw Frame extend the lead with two penalties, before lock Roger Birkin peeled off a driving maul to score.
Redruth responded with a try from Kyle Marriott, which Neilson Webber converted, but Cinderford hit back when centre Ed Bogue showed good skills to score an unconverted try.
Then on the stroke of half-time a kick ahead and chase led to winger Jack O’Connell scoring the home side’s bonus point try, which was well converted from Frame.
Lock Sean Buzza scored early in the second-half for Redruth, but once again Cinderford replied when Reuben Norville scored a converted try to make it 3712 after 57 minutes of play with the home side in control.
Another kick ahead and chase then saw Norville grab his second try, which Frame converted again.
The visitors scored their third try when flanker Sam Matavesi finished off a series of pick and goes in the closing stages, with Webber converting.
There was still time for O’Connell to score his second, when he chased another kick.
