Penryn maintained top spot in Tribute Western Counties West following a 17-0 win at the Memorial Ground against nearest rivals Wellington.
It was sweet revenge for the Borough against the only side to have beaten them in the league earlier in the season. However, Penryn will no doubt be disappointed that they didn’t score a fourth try to collect the extra bonus point.
Penryn got off to a great start with an un-converted try scored by flanker James Mann after just five minutes, but they were rocked losing flanker Nathan Pascoe after only ten minutes with a shoulder injury, young Jordan Rose coming on off the bench.
Wellington came into the game more but couldn’t turn pressure into points with full back Mark Nichols spurning two kickable first half penalties.
Instead it was Penryn who got the important score before half-time with winger Darren Pellow scoring down in the clubhouse corner for a 10-0 half-time lead.
Penryn started the second period well with a third try scored by scrum-half Taron Peacock following a good run by Rose, fly-half Dave Pascoe was on target with the conversion.
James Mann was his usual busy self having a big game for the Borough with Jordan Rose also frequently catching the eye.
Penryn couldn’t add to their tally and were on the back foot during the closing stages as Wellington looked to salvage a score but the Penryn defence held firm with Rose putting in a try-saving tackle to foil the visitors.
