Keynsham 25 – Bridgwater and Albion RFC 20

Bridgwater and Albion RFC gave a much improved and spirited performance at Keynsham where at the end of a game that was played in incessant rain, which made handling difficult, they were only narrowly beaten.

Soon afterwards Bridgwater got themselves on the scoreboard when following a combined move involving Shaun Mahoney and Oskar White the visitors were awarded a penalty which  Kyran Devitt slotted over.

The score remained at 5-3…

The score remained at 5-3 for the next 20 minutes of play that were evenly contested, until Challenger kicked two penalties in quick succession to extend Keynsham’s lead.

In the closing minutes of the first half Albion scrum half Jake Knight made a half break which ended with Mahoney scoring a try near the posts which Devitt converted that made the score 11-10.

Right on the interval Keynsham intercepted a pass and stand off Hill ran to the line unopposed to score a try that Challenger converted to make it 18-10 at the break.
