HORNETS 32 ptsCAMBORNE 3 ptsHORNETS completed their league campaign registering their 10th win of the season with this comfortable victory over their Cornish visitors by 32 points to three.The first half was a dour affair with the home side dominating territory and possession, but unable to string any kind of constructive move together.A combination of poor line-out work and bad handling enabled Camborne to defend their line and it took half an hour before Hornets opened their account when left wing Josh Partridge broke away to score in the corner much to the relief of the sizeable crowd.Going into the second half with a slim lead of only five points and now playing into a stiff breeze, the home club started to find their form.A half break by centre Ferguson put Paul Morrissey away and the No 8 outpaced the Camborne defence to score near the posts, making the conversion easy for Sam Lloyd-Jones.On a rare visit into the Hornets half, the Camborne fly-half dropped a goal to make the score 12-3 to the Hornets.The home side now started to capitalise on their possession and following good work by openside flanker Darren Griffiths's replacement, Matt Vaughan make ground. The visitors were penalised close to their line and Lloyd-Jones converted the penalty to stretch the Hornets' lead.Two further tries quickly followed, both scored by Jordan Kingman, one converted by Lloyd-Jones.The final try was scored by centre Vaughan, bringing the game to an end, the final scored being 32-3 to Hornets.This has been a difficult season for the Hornets, who started their campaign with a deficit of nine points and faced with long away fixtures into Devon and Cornwall.The players and coaching staff deserve to be congratulated on achieving their league record of 10 victories, a draw and 11 defeats.It remains to be seen which division they play in next season as the RFU have yet to decide on the format for the 2009/10 season.
