OPMs got their first Devon Two win of the season with a 57-0 victory away at St Columba & Torpoint.

The Old Boys ran in eight tries at Defiance Field, with centre Matty Thompson claiming a hat-trick.

The influential Martin Skelly scored two, including one length-of-the-field effort, while Billy Garrett, Andy Sincock and Adam Havelock collected their other tries.  Havelock’s was his first for the club. Sammy Matts kicked seven conversions and a penalty.

“We were really pleased with how we played first half,” said captain Henry Matthews. “We were playing up the hill and into the wind so we knew we had to play our structures.

“We were back on track with that as we played exactly how we wanted to. I think we scored more tries in the first half than we did in the second.
“Our forwards played really well first half and the backs were able to finish off their hard work.

“Second half we struggled a bit for continuity. We gave away too many penalties. I just think we tired after the great effort we’d put in during the first half.
“It was just good to get back to winning ways.”
