RUGBY: Minety 2nd 24 Westbury 2nd 10
5:00pm Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in Sport
MINETY reached the last eight of the Dorset & Wilts 2nd XV Shield as their first half performance proved enough against Westbury.
Playing with the bare XV, the home side got under way with a catch-and-drive move from an attacking lineout that saw Stacey Skinner touch down for a try.
Morgan Lightbody was next to cross the line before Dellam Murray ran in a third try.
Nick Jones kicked all three conversions before adding a penalty late in the half to make it 24-0 at the break.
With the slope in their favour in the second half, Westbury’s big forwards proved hard to stop, setting up two tries, but despite an injury to Matt Stone that reduced them to 14, Minety saw out the match.
