Torrington and Totnes slugged it out toe-to-toe in a high-scoring affair in Devon One.

It ended 31-31 after Totnes had the chance to win it with a couple of minutes to go but their kicker shanked a penalty wide.

Torrington were two tries up after 10 minutes and led 26-19 by half time and Totnes, who had no replacements on the bench, played the final 10 minutes a man short due to a sin binning.

But Torrie could not take advantage, with Mike Wigley, Tom Scantlebury, Shane Roach, Charlie Bazell and Tom Gooch their try scorers as Gooch landed three conversions.Torrington are without a game in Devon One this Saturday.

*Ilfracombe conceded their away game against OPM as they were unable to get a side to Plymouth.
