Hornets Colts reach Somerset Cup final

Hornets Colts reached the Somerset Cup final after defeating Avonvale at The Nest.

In perfect conditions and in front of a large crowd, Hornets Colts moved into the Somerset Cup final after a tough encounter at The Nest, beating Avonvale 20-0.

The forwards, led by Richardson, caused havoc in Avonvale’s defence. Locker and Eades kept the pressure up and got Hornets close. An infringement and Hornets had a penalty shot at goal, converted by Humphris.

Avonvale played their part and ran at Hornets, but solid defence in midfield by Fry and Holyday and good covering by Chamberlain, Coleman and Wall kept Avonvale out.

Turning round three points up, Hornets started the second half at full pace and Hancock and Phillips put in a great shift. Another penalty to Hornets saw a kick for the corner.
