Camp Hill 31, Banbury 17

CAMPS clinched their second Midlands Division One West success although their ill-discipline in the second half could have cost them dearly.

CAMPS clinched their second Midlands Division One West success although their ill-discipline in the second half could have cost them dearly.

Full back Ian Briggs fired Camps into an early lead with a penalty before centre Barney Edwards landed a drop goal.

Banbury scrum half Eddie Phillips then fired over a penalty, but Briggs responded likewise before Camps grabbed two tries in the final 10 minutes of the half.

Briggs took a quick tap penalty and passed for Alex Richmond who skirted the visitors’ defence to score his first try of the term which Briggs improved.

Briggs then scythed his way through Banbury’s ranks before finding scrum half Adey Dakers who registered his first Camp Hill score.

Briggs again kicked the extras to leave Camps leading 23-3 at the turn round.

A player was then sin-binned and Phillips dived over for try which left wing Mike Smith converted.

Briggs then landed his third penalty and then scored another try following a Camps’ scrum and superb Dakers pass.

Camps were on the receiving end of yellow cards either side of a try by Banbury flanker Andy Oddy which Smith converted but held onto victory.

On Saturday Camps travel to Whitchurch in another Midlands Division One West fixture.
