CAMP Hill are hoping for a response tomorrow when they entertain high-flying Dudley Kingswinford after suffering their first defeat in 12 months last week.

A dominant first-half performance from Burton saw Camps effectively lose the game in the opening period.

Dave Archer was pulling all the strings and was influential in putting the home side 28 points ahead after just half an hour.

It took Archer only three minutes to open the scores with a fine try in the corner.

Continuing to struggle against a well-organised side Camps found themselves 11-0 down when Archer added two penalties to his points tally.

Craig Dutton's pace then saw him dive over beneath the posts for Archer to convert.

The fly-half remained in the thick of the action as he converted his own try and added his third successful penalty to give Burton a comfortable half-time lead.

After the break a penalty from Alex Richmond and a Rob Obeng-Manu try prematurely reduced the deficit before Archer converted an Ian Gilmore try to consolidate the hosts' top-spot position.
