Buck­fastleigh into the semi-fi­nals of Devon Ju­nior Cup


Herald Express - - Marketplace - BY CON­RAD SUT­CLIFFE

BUCK­FASTLEIGH are through to the last four of the Devon Ju­nior Cup af­ter beat­ing Dart­mouth 25-0 at the Cricket Ground.

Dart­mouth were se­ri­ously de­pleted for the game due to a long-planned a stag week­end booked by one of their play­ers.

The game should have been played three weeks ear­lier, but had to be re­ar­ranged due to bad weather at the time.

And with a busy league pro­gramme to fit in, there was lit­tle flex­i­bil­ity in the sched­ule to re­ar­range the game again.

Bucks led 7-0 at the break thanks to a Scott Ma­son try that Harry Laity con­verted. Laity added two penal­ties af­ter the break for a 13-0 home lead then con­verted his own break­away try to make it 20-0. A cor­ner try by Sam Green con­cluded the scor­ing for the Ram­blers.

The Ram­blers will be away to Ex­eter Ath­letic in the semi-fi­nal, on a date to be con­firmed. The other semi-fi­nal is be­tween Tor­ring­ton and North Taw­ton.

Dart­mouth are look­ing for­ward to their first home game for three weeks this Sat­ur­day when Old Techs pay a visit. The Ram­blers are at home to Tamar Sara­cens.

Totnes , who had no league or cup game last Sat­ur­day, en­ter­tain Tor­ring­ton on the Bor­ough Park. New Cross have no match un­til De­cem­ber 8 when they visit North Taw­ton.

In the South West One West di­vi­sion Teign­mouth ’s home game against Newent was post­poned due to the wa­ter­logged state of the pitch at Bit­ton Park. No re­play date has been set yet, al­though league chiefs may in­sist on mov­ing it to just be­fore Christ­mas with Sat­ur­day, De­cem­ber 22 cur­rently a free date.

The Teigns host Thorn­bury this Sat­ur­day.
