From a scrum on the 5 metre line, Matt Harris playing at 8 picked the ball up and off loaded to scum half Sam Conway to score 5-0. Then again, with the forwards dominating a quick tap and go penalty from Sam Conway led to his 2nd try under the posts, with Owen Flinn converting 12-0. Topsham were now under great pressure which led to a great break from full back Chris Skinner to off load the ball to Matt Harris who bulldozed his way over the line with Flinn converting 19-0. Then against the run of play Topsham kicked off and caught the ball uncontested and scored in the corner. 19-5.
