Bideford are out of the bottom three in South West One thanks to a 23-7 win over visiting Keynsham. Mid-table Keynsham would have hoped for better against a side battling relegation, but were undone in the second half. A Chris Snell penalty for Bideford was the only thing between the sides in the first half. Hooker Tom Lewis scored a corner try converted by Sam Challinger to put Keynsham ahead briefly. After that it was Bideford all the way. Keynsham coughed up a penalty try, Snell added another and kicked a conversion and another penalty. Sean East popped over a drop goal. Having lost three on the trot in the league, Bideford needed a win before a blip became a slide. Team manager Bradley Goaman said the four points were more than welcome. He added: The first half was not a great spectacle for the 300 supporters with lots of errors from both teams . The second half saw a big improvement for us playing in to a strong wind. Our defence was extremely good with Dean Folland and Alex Priest putting in some big tackles. Bideford have no game this Saturday.
