| 01/04/2017

Bridgwater and Albion made the trip to the Forest of Dean where despite putting up a spirited performance they suffered their first defeat to Drybrook in six encounters.
The opening exchanges were pretty even and both sides created opportunities that all failed to result in points.
The Drybrook full back Hubert kicked his side out of trouble on several occasions and in the end the opening score came as a result of one of his long kicks into touch and from the following line out Price crashed over for a try that Baldwin converted.
The Albion bounced back strongly through good work by Roger Drabble and Sam Britton but sadly the break came to nothing and the score remained 7-0 at the break.
The home side came out strongly from half time and two minutes from the re-start Drybrook stand off Large scythed through a couple of tackles to score a try that Baldwin converted.
For the next 15 minutes it was Bridgwater who were in the ascendancy. Britton along with Luke Plummer and Ethan Trebble-Westlake all cerated opportunities but the visitors were unable to score as the home defence held firm.
Just after the hour another good kick by Hubert found touch and following the line out Drybrook were awarded a penalty which Baldwin slotted home.
The home side continued to press forward and with three minutes to go a good break by Hubert resulted in Moore scoring for Drybrook making it 22-0 to the hosts.
