Teignmouth 22, BARFC 40 (28/01/17)

| 28/01/2017

BRIDGWATER bounced back from their poor display against Okehampton the previous weekend to gain an impressive away win over Teignmouth.
Head coach Simon Morrell, understandably, made changes for the trip to Devon, including new boys Harry Collins (hooker) and Paul Ash-Smith (prop).
Back rower Nick Spellissy also made the starting line-up for the first time this season and played his part in a thoroughly deserved victory for Morrell’s men.
Albion held an 18-7 lead at half time and then turned the screw, storming into a 33-7 lead. It was then a question of how many they would win by rather than IF they would win.
The visitors got away to a bright start with Stuart Heal kicking a fourth minute penalty. Sam Britton snapped up a 16th minute try for Bridgwater and Heal added a penalty not long after.
Bridgwater continued to dominate and Tom Fournier crossed the Seasiders’ tryline with Heal converting to make it 18-0.
There was a slight hic-cup when Teignmouth finally got on the scoresheet with a converted try.
Bridgwater enjoyed their best spell of the game just after half time with Taylor Buller scoring two tries and Heal kicking a penalty and conversion to make it 33-7 – a position which they were going to hold onto with ease.
Teignmouth hit back with two tries before Heal helped himself to a try which he converted from wide out.
The Devonians managed another unconverted try to gain a 4-try bonus point but the day belonged to Albion who looked unrecognisable compared to the previous week.
