Clifton Under-17s hang on for a dramatic victory against Frampton Cotterell
FRAMPTON Cotterell Under-17s and Clifton served up a rugby feast during their nerve-jangling 32-31 epic at Cribbs Causeway.
The home side raced into a 19-0 lead, and appeared to be on course to racking up a big-scoring victory. But the visitors mounted a stirring fight back, which was inspired by hat-trick hero Richard Lane.
Frampton not only pulled themselves off the canvas, but forged ahead 32-19, with tries by Joe Cressford, Brandon Ball (2), with Callum Pitt slotting a conversion. But the South Gloucestershire side were hanging on at the finish as Clifton fought back to within a point at the full-time whistle.
Keynsham Under-16s produced their best performance of the season to topple a spirited Nailsea & Backwell side at Crown Field. Keynsham took a 15-0 lead into the interval, with tries by Kit Timmis and Matt King, while Cory Alder added a penalty and a conversion. The Ravens battled gamely in the second-half, but the home side-stepped up their effort to secure a 46-0 victory, thanks to further tries by Frank Spitzer (2), Ryan Harding, Dan Blackwell and Alder, who also nudged over three further conversions.
