Camp Hill down in the dumps

Dudley Kingswinford 67

* Dudley Kingswinford 67 Camp Hill 7

CAMP Hill remain rooted to the foot of Midlands Two after a walloping away defeat at Dudley Kingswinford.

Although it is difficult to find any comfort from the loss, Camps did begin well, with the second Dudley K try not arriving until the 26th minute as well as dominating possession in the final minutes.

But there was no hiding away from a disastrous intervening hour where virtually all of the damage was done.

Fly half Gareth Bown converted an early try from left wing Robbie Jones but the visitors looked lively and spent enough time in the home 22 to have registered a score.

Sadly it was not to be and from the beginning of the second quarter the home side completely took charge.

A hat-trick of tries from Matt Taylor was followed by a second from Jones before Bown, Stefan Shillingford, Stuart Bratt, Alex Francis, Ed Parry and James Jefferson completed the rout.

Bown kept the scores ticking over with four conversions before Simon Edwards hit back with a consolation try which he converted himself on 67 minutes.

Camps face a relegation four-pointer against Cheltenham on Saturday.

* Birmingham Exiles 53 Redditch 0

A CRUSHING 53-0 victory over Redditch helped Birmigham Exiles’ promotion push preperations.
