Hornets´ Bradford in try treble

Hornets´ Bradford in try treble
HANDS ON: Newquay Hornets beat Veor 21-15 at the Sports Centre to maintain their unbeaten record in Cornwall One

NEWQUAY Hornets continued their unbeaten start to the Cornwall One campaign, beating a well-drilled Veor side to keep the pressure on leaders Liskeard-Looe at the Sports Centre.

Young prop Alec Bembo, who is in excellent form, collected the ball from a Veor mistake and made good ground to find centre Daniel Bradford who crossed the line for the first try. Kyle Plummer's excellent conversion from the touchline gave the Hornets an early lead.

Veor, with their heavier set of forwards, had one game plan and, on 25 minutes, put that plan to good use with a massive 40 metre maul up the touchline and a converted try for their reward.

It was just about on half-time when the Hornets' forwards pressed hard to gain possession of the ball for Jake Perkins to make massive ground up the middle and draw in Veor's final defence to put Bradford over for his second try. Another fine conversion from Plummer gave the Hornets a half-time lead of 14-7.

Veor came back early in the second-half using their same game plan which resulted in another try.

With the score now at 14-12, the Hornets stepped up a gear and with Connor Riley, playing in an unfamiliar position at number 10, he judged a superb kick over Veor's defence. Man of the Match Bradford out sprinted the opposition for his hat-trick. With Plummer kicking the conversion, the score was now 21-12. The visitors continued to press hard and, with the Hornets adjudged offside, they reduced the deficit to 21-15. Veor were still within striking distance but, with the Hornets back row of Tim Eustice, Dylan Messenger and Callum Varcoe working tirelessly all game, any of their gains were soon snuffed out as Newquay ground out the victory.

Next week, the Hornets are away to Roseland and would welcome all supporters for the game (2.30pm).
