EVESHAM Rugby Club Colts progressed to round three of the Under 18s National Colts Cup with a 31-23 victory at Willenhall.
The hosts pounced on two uncharacteristic Evesham mistakes in the first five minutes to score two quick tries, one converted, for a 12-0 lead.
Evesham rallied with Connor Greatrix crashing over for Mike Harris to convert.
But their work was undone as Willenhall added an uncoverted try and penalty.
The visitors responded through Wilf Watson’s try, converted by Harris, to trail 20-14 at the break.
Evesham’s third try came from a line-out, from which hooker Martin Di Franco touched down.
A Harris penalty edged the visitors 24-23 ahead before Icke added a converted try.
