4:20pm Tuesday 24th September 2013 in Sport
DEVIZES 2nd bounced back from their first week horror show with a confidence-boosting result against their local rivals.
But it was Pewsey who came out strongly first up, Devizes’ committed defence keeping them at bay, then turning defence into attack as a fine team move ended with Kyle Marsh speeding clear of the defence to score, captain Matty Holloran booting the conversion.
A second try followed almost immediately as Corbin Turner snatched an intercept from 40 metres out and sprinted clear, Holloran against converting.
Marsh grabbed his second before the break as a kick eluded the Pewsey defence and landed in his hands.
Pewsey got their first try after half time through a break down the right wing allowed Matty Mercer to outpace the defence to score in the corner, but Holloran kicked a penalty for Devizes.
Vale then added a two more tries through Vatimosi Rokowai, but again the conversions were missed and Devizes saw out the match.
