7:00pm Tuesday 2nd October 2012 in Sport
A STRONG finish to the first half gave Southern Counties South leaders Sherborne victory at Ballards Ash.
The home side made a good start and registered the first points as Dave Hogg booted a penalty.
Sherborne responded their their opening try of the contest, but Bassett went close when captain Nick Parker’s cross-kick wasn’t gathered in the corner.
The visitors added a penalty and two converted tries before the interval established their command.
A fourth bonus-point try all but wrapped up the win for Sherborne in the second period.
In a disjointed half – with five players being sin-binned – Bassett substitute Tim Gallimore was denied a home try when he was adjudged not to have grounded the ball.
Hogg kicked three further penalties for the home side.
