On what was a glorious Sunday, Allhallows was awash with games for the town’s junior sides, writes Jerry Rice.

First up were the U15s, who were playing their first round cup game on the back of a great win against much-fancied Newton Abbot the week before. They were in no mood to let the momentum slip.

As predicted, this was a very one-sided game and really it resembled an unopposed training session as the Lacemen ran in nine tries.

Josh Dean and Wez Keywood led the way with a brace of tries each and Finn Parrott, Harry Wright, Mike Nuckie, Jonny House and Richie Webber all weighed in with one apiece. Harry Wright had a good day with the boot, kicking six out of nine.

The game was actually stopped 20 minutes early as the opposition threw in the towel. Nevertheless, this was a good all-round team performance for the Honiton lads.
