Clevedon fell just short against Barton Hill, with wrong options and poor decisions letting them down at the vital time.

Clevedon 7 pts

Barton Hill 10 pts

This proved a frustrating afternoon for Clevedon on a cold wet day.

The Seasiders totally dominated the first half but just could not get over the line. From the start, Clevedon’s dominance in the set piece was evident and they recycled ball well, but unfortunately wrong options and the final pass let them down.

Such was their dominance it took Barton Hill 30 minutes till they paid a visit to the Clevedon half where they were rewarded a penalty to take the lead

The second half saw the visitors gain in confidence and Clevedon becoming frustrated, the Barts pack now began to get on top with their 10-man style rugby and to add to Clevedon’s woes any possession was either lost or knocked on which gave Barts numerous chances to launch attacks and it led them to score a converted try.

Clevedon’s heads did not drop and they drove deep into the Barts half creating chances, but again poor support and the final pass denied.

With 10 minutes to go, Clevedon’s determination was rewarded when Joe Tucker’s quick tap penalty put Tom Thie over for a try, converted by Jordan Mein.

The Seasiders spent the last few minutes in the Barts half, but failed to add to the score.

Head coach Nick Hill commented this was a frustrating afternoon and the lads are disappointed with themselves for not taking their chances today, but we must remember we are far from the finished product and we will improve.
