Winscombe lost House when his legs were kicked from under him and he was replaced by Louis Hooper. An interception by Minehead was run the length of the field for a converted try.
Within four minutes Minehead had scored again after a series of pick and drives close to the line. The hosts increased their lead with another converted try and a late converted try gave Minehead a flattering score of 38-3 at the end of a tough encounter.
