Pepsi Hor­nets sting arch ri­vals Yamaha Caribs

Stabroek News Sunday - - SUNDAY SPORT -

The Pepsi Hor­nets made light work of the Yamaha Caribs yes­ter­day earning a 42-8 vic­tory when the Bounty Farm 15s League con­tin­ued at the Na­tional Park.

Thanks to a Claudius Butts try, the Caribs seized the early ad­van­tage but they quickly un­rav­eled.

A try apiece by Ryan Gon­salves, Lons­dale Brown and a con­ver­sion and penalty by Leon Greaves quickly put the Hor­nets up 10.

Butts would stem the tide with a penalty to drag the Caribs within seven but a wave of tries and saran wrap de­fense blanked the Caribs the rest of the way and en­abled the Hor­nets to se­cure the sting­ing vic­tory.

A brace by Pe­abo Hamil­ton along with a con­ver­sion by Gon­salves stretched the lead fur­ther as the Hor­nets would go into half­time with the score on 27-8.

Fol­low­ing half­time, Ja­son Tyrell, El­win Chase and Blaise Bai­ley added gloss to the score line by putting their names on the score­sheet with a try each. The 15 unan­swered points un­der­scored the Hor­nets’ dom­i­nance fol­low­ing Butts’ early game hero­ics.
