Rugby: Clevedon 12 Chipping Sodbury 19
PUBLISHED: 17:00 10 March 2020
Clevedon claimed a bonus point from their 19-12 home loss against Chipping Sodbury in Western Counties North on Saturday.
The visitors started well on a sticky pitch to score two tries in quick succession, with one converted to make it 12-0.
But Clevedon hit back when Edwin Smith and Ryan Hervey combined to put Joe Tucker over the line for a try converted by Ethan Thomas.
The Seasiders applied a lot of pressure after that, but could not find a way through and the visitors extended their lead to 19-7 just before the interval.
Clevedon soaked up pressure in the second half and Warren Taylor made a superb break to run in from 35 metres, but they could not add to their tally despite late pressure on the Sodbury line.
Coach Nick Hill said: "After a shaky start the lads showed great spirit and resilience and were unlucky not to get more out of the game."
Clevedon return to action with a trip to Winscombe on March 21.
