A glut of second half tries secured maximum points for Bideford with a 30-7 win

Bideford had to work harder than expected for their 30-7 win over struggling Kingsbridge in South West One.

The home side only led 3-0 at half time thanks to a solitary penalty from Chris Snell.

Kingsbridge defended well but sooner or later they were going to break.

“We had loads of territory but credit to Kingsbridge they defended well and we lacked a bit of spark,” said team manager Bradley Goaman.

“The try for the bonus point five minutes from time was a good one – and with all five points in the bag we have to be happy.”

Four tries in the second half gave Bideford the bonus-point win they were after.

Sam Griffin crossed twice for Bideford with Dean Folland and Snell getting a try each. Snell kicked the goals.

Man of the match for Bideford was lock Tom Evans.
