Jordan Petherbridge led Barnstaples points parade as they sent National League Two South new boys Wimbledon crashing to a 33-13 defeat on the seasons opening day. The lead changed hands several times in the first half before Barnstaple got in front at 12-10. Once in the lead there was no stopping Barnstaple, who were 19-10 up at the break and shot clear in the second half. Petherbridge had a busy first half, converting tries by Nat Bayet and Will Topps, but missing one scored by Winston James. The second half started with a Wimbledon penalty to make it 19-13, but that was as close as they got. Petherbridge converted his own try on 50 minutes and repeated the feat on 64 minutes to put the result beyond any doubt. Barnstaple can expect a tougher game this Saturday when Redruth visit Pottington, fresh from demolishing Old Reds 58-10 in their first game. Kick-off is at 2.30pm.
