Clevedon RFC have started a winning run after picking up their second win in as many games, this time in strong fashion.

Playing at home, the Clevedon side defeated Barton Hill 34-0 in the Tribute Western North division.

The win sees them jump up to fifth spot in the league table and one of the form teams in the league.

Clevedon kept pushing forward and doubled the lead in the 21st minute as Harrison grabbed his second of the afternoon. Ethan Thomas added the extras too.

He was to complete a first half hattrick too as in the 26th minute he crossed once more. Thomas missed the third conversion but the score was 15-0.

Just before half time, Thomas kicked a penalty for Clevedon and the score was 20-0 at the break.

Harrison's impressive point scoring day continued early in the second half as he ran in his fourth try of the afternoon and put Clevedon out of reach for the Barton Hill side.

Thomas converted to make the score 27-0 and it was clear Clevedon were in control.

Substitutions were made soon after to get some fresh legs in the forward pack and Clevedon managed the rest of the game well.

Barton Hill were reduced to 14 after some poor discipline in the 61st minute.

Clevedon made them pay as in the following passage of play Jack Crew crossed for his sides fifth try of the match which Thomas converted to make it 34-0 with about 17 minutes to play.

That would be the final score but not the final piece of drama in the match.

Clevedon would end the match with just 13 players on the pitch after being shown two yellow cards, on in the 71st minute and the other in the 74th.

Tom Willis was first to go off for a breather after some poor discipline and then Edd Ryder followed him.

No matter though, Clevedon were good for the win and managed to keep Barton Hill from scoring despite the numbers advantage.

Up next for Clevedon is an away trip to take on third placed Old Redcliffians II on Saturday, November 4.
