The graveyard holds no fears for Keynsham
ROB Breckon enjoyed a day to remember as basement battlers Keynsham 2nds dug deep for a 20-8 Somerset Premier triumph at Gordano.
The winger was on target with two penalties as his side turned around trailing 8-6 in a game switched because of the rain from Caswell Lane to Portbury village.
And the second half was edged by the visitors with Breckon adding three further penalties and scoring a try to wrap up only Keynsham's second win of the campaign.
Gordano almost saw the defeat coming as four previous league encounters on the narrow Portbury pitch, nicknamed the Graveyard, had also ended in defeat. Their only try came from centre Owen Abbott.

Leaders Chew Valley made it eight wins in a row with a 60-0 home demolition of Taunton. Try scorers included Jack Evans (2), Charles Shallcross, Mitch Quoi, Alex Cameron, James Tanner, Alex Cox and Ross Elliott.
Old Reds 2nds, meanwhile, demolished Wiveliscombe 66-0 at home in a game which kicked off late because of a motorway accident.
Full-back Matt Lewis led the charge with five tries with centres Matt Coles (2) and Craig Lancastle also crossing. Lock Mason Gill-Watkins, winger Sam Britton and replacement Nathan Burnell all got in on the act while Mike Patterson added a penalty and four conversions. It was a terrific day for Reds who completed a hat-trick of club wins as their 3rds inflicted a first defeat of the campaign on Somerset One pacesetters St Bernadettes.
Reds made full use of home advantage to surge into a 27-3 half-time lead and eventually triumphed 30-20. Rob James, standing in at scrum-half, booted a first half penalty for Saints and then grabbed a try he converted, while there were also touchdowns from No 8 Jordan Porter and winger Billy Norman.
The home side's tries came from Dean McCreight, Joe Clements and Ollie Barnett with Lawrence Missen on target with three conversions and three penalties for a crucial haul of 15 points.
Bristol Barbarians, meanwhile, made it nine wins in a row with a hard-earned 15-0 home defeat of Castle Cary. The match was abandoned after 65 minutes because of an injury to a visiting player but the result stands because more than an hour of play was completed.
Craig Skuse led the charge for the Whitchurch outfit with two tries while James Churchill added one conversion and a penalty.
Centre Harry Jones led second placed Weston-super-Mare to a 90-0 away thrashing of Oxford Harlequins in National Three South West with a hat-trick of tries. In total the Seasiders touched down 14 times, wrapping up the bonus point before the break ahead of massively improving their points difference total,
