THE weather once again had its say over the weekend but there’s still plenty on offer in this week’s Post Series sports section.
Although Bude’s trip to Tiverton in Counties One Western West was postponed, Launceston’s home clash with Devonport Services did get the go ahead with the Cornishmen edging home 18-13 courtesy of a late Dan Pearce try.
Inside is a report and pictures from Polson Bridge as well as reaction from joint head coach Ian Goldsmith.
There’s also reports from Counties Three Cornwall which saw Bude Seconds earn a second victory of the season at home to their Wadebridge counterparts, while Launceston Castles went down 29-0 at Perranporth.
Football wise, all of the Post area teams in the South West Peninsula League were left frustrated by the weather, although Launceston Reserves and Gunnislake did manage to play in St Piran League East.
No local sides were able to play in the East Cornwall Premier League, but five games went ahead in the Duchy League, including the top of the table Premier Division clash between Southgate Seniors and Dobwalls Reserves.
