Southern Nomads win big game in Manx Shield
DOUGLAS beat Ramsey 26-3 at Port-e-Chee to keep up their 100 per cent record in South Lancashire and Cheshire Division Two and maintain pressure on leaders Sefton.
They led 11-0 at half-time thanks to a try and a drop goal from Bryn Snellgrove and a penalty from skipper Scott Goodall.
Snellgrove added his second try after half time and a try from Steve Tansell made the game safe, with Goodall adding a conversion and a penalty to complete his side’s scoring. Fintan Cummins kicked a solitary penalty for Ramsey.
* PDMS Southern Nomads won the top of the table clash against Vagabonds B 17-10 at Ballafletcher.
The first half was a tight affair with the only score a penalty coming from Nomads’ Duncan Miller. Two quick tries at the beginning of the second half from Steve McHugh and Harry Brereton, both converted by Miller pushed the lead out to 17-0. Vagas hit back with tries from Floris Venter and Andy Pease but will rue the absence of a goal kicker as they missed seven points from the boot.
Douglas B beat Castletown 38-21 at Poulsom Park. Veteran scrum-half Ady Shimmin bagged a hat-trick of tries for Douglas. There were also scores from Sam Peel, Dan Winrow and Ben Dutnall with Gareth Hooson-Owen adding four conversions. Town’s points came courtesy of tries from Paul Drake, Gary Stephenson and Will Stanton with Chris Mash converting all three.
In the final game of the day, Ramsey B beat Western Vikings 21-5 at Mooragh Park. Luke Robertson, Matty Kelly and Mikey Craine all picked up tries for Ramsey with Matty Kelly converting all three scores. Vikings skipper Mike Sheeley touched down for his side’s consolation try before leaving the field with a dislocated knee.
