4:16pm Wednesday 17th October 2012 in Latest Sport News
FULL-BACK Nigel Kershaw delivered a faultless kicking display as Westbury booked a last-four trip to Marlborough with victory in Swindon.
Behind to an early penalty, Westbury responded with a period of pressure that ended with Kershaw levelling the scores with a penalty of his own.
With the Swindon scrum dominant, the visitors struggled to get on the front foot, but they took the lead when fly-half Isoa Vulagirua chipped over the defensive line and winger Greg Atkinson hacked the ball on to touch down under the posts, Kershaw converting.
Just before half time Vulagirua again took advantage of the defensive line being flat to chip through and touch down himself, Kershaw adding the extras.
Two Swindon penalties early in the second half reduced arrears and Westbury were reduced to 14 men when Bryan Clarke was sin-binned.
But once restored to full strength Kershaw booted another penalty and added a further kick from 40 metres to wrap up victory.
