4:20pm Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in Latest Sport News
WARMINSTER lit up their night-time encounter at Salisbury last Friday as they comprehensively bounced back from their derby defeat to Westbury.
The amber and blues were offered the chance to play under the hosts’ floodlights and turned on the style in the second half to power away to victory.
Warminster made all of the early running and were rewarded when fly-half Gavin Pratt spotted a gap and dived over, Jason Sprangle converting from the touchline.
Salisbury hit back to level the scores, but then infringed, allowing Sprangle to nudge the visitors clear with a penalty.
The second try arrived soon after as Rob Bell broke from midfield and reached the line, Sprangle again adding the extras.
But Salisbury again responded, putting the away side under pressure with James Rowbotham being send to the sin-bin, before a second converted try made it 17-14 to Warminster at half time.
But that was as good as it got for the home side as Warminster romped clear in the second half.
Bell wreaked havoc, sprinting clear from inside his own half for a converted try.
The bonus point score came from substitute and veteran Andy Clarke after a driving maul had trundled upfield, Pratt adding the extra’s.
Pratt himself bagged his brace, ghosting over from the 22 untouched and the sixth try came from winger Luke Windsor, who beat defenders out wide and went over in the corner.
Instead of easing off, Warminster continued their committed effort, Dean Priestman producing a monster hit to halt a Salisbury attack.
And the night was complete as second row Reid Curtis bulldozed over the line.
