EVESHAM Colts recorded a 36-10 victory at Kidderminster Carolians in the North Midlands Colts League.

The visitors were made to work extremely hard by Kidderminster’s big and well organised pack, but they soaked up the pressure before cutting loose in the final 10 minutes.

Kidderminster started impressively, scoring an unconverted try from their second attack of the game, following a try-saving tackle from Jack Witts during their first.

Evesham levelled the score when Jake Shotton and Wilf Watson set-up a position from which Witts dived underneath the defence to touch down.

After Mike Harris added the conversion, Kidderminster dominated the rest of the half but Evesham kept them out with back-row forwards Alex Stoddart, Iain Stoddart and Adrian Cook putting in tackle after tackle.

Evesham went into the break 7-5 in front but the hosts continued to dominate and were soon 10-7 ahead.

The visitors, though, began to consistently win turn-over ball, allowing them to counter- attack with pace and purpose.

Watson was the first to profit, put clear for a try after Josh Perry gathered loose ball in midfield, and although Harris missed the conversion, Evesham never looked back.

The visitors ran in four more unanswered tries through Ash Icke, Watson, Martin Di Franco and Jordan Griffiths.

Harris converted two of the last four tries to complete the scoring.
