St Paul’s stun Truro to break clear in the South – AASE Round 9 Review

A fascinating day in the AASE league saw St Paul’s secure a top two finish in the Southern Conference, and in all likelihood top spot.

That came following a brilliant 29-6 away win over Truro College, who must yet play Filton next week and a postponed game against Ivybridge in December.

Filton might just fancy their chances in that game against Truro after they posted a stunning 41-7 victory over Bicton College to draw them level on points with Truro College and leaving Bicton in a real dogfight with Henley and Ivybridge below them.

Henley kept themselves in that particular dogfight with just their second victory of the season as they saw off Ivybridge 23-15, lifting them off bottom spot in the table and confirmed some good form, that is two weeks running without defeat for them now.

Up in the Northern Conference Hartpury College confirmed that they will finish top of the pile as they defeated the only side that could challenge them, second placed Oaklands College, 43-15. It only served to show just how dominant Hartpury have been, nobody will fancy meeting them in the finals.

Myerscough have all but secured a place in the Plate rounds of the knockouts, as they put themselves clear of the chasing pack in third palce with a 40-12 victory over Moulton College.

Worcester 6th form College look like joining them in fourth place, they saw off bottom of the table Gosforth with a 21-14 victory to leave them five points clear of Moulton College, though the Northampton Saints AASE side to have a game in hand.

So while top of the table in both leagues looks secure, the dogfight for positions elsewhere is going to go right down to the wire.
