Archant

Yatton under-15s avenged an earlier defeat against their Weston rivals to run out 40-14 winners in their return meeting.

A strong scrum turned the ball over for Ben Clarke to make a great break and score after just three minutes.

And a lovely angled run by Josh Moss led to a second try soon after, also converted, for a 14-0 lead.

Clarke went over again, before the Yatton forwards produced a drive for Tom Ballard – who kicked five conversions as well – to score in the corner. But Weston hit back with a try under the posts before the break.

Yatton started the second half strongly and Cam Fogg burrowed his way over for a typical front-row score, before Moss produced another superb run from halfway to score under the posts.

Weston grabbed a second try of their own as late consolation but there was no denying Yatton their victory after excellent displays from forwards and backs alike.
