Morganians tough it out in Taunton victory
1:00pm Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Sport
Morganians 29 Taunton 18
MORGANIANS recorded their second win in a row on Saturday after running in five tries against a very competitive Taunton side.
Taunton started the game brightly, scoring out wide in the first five minutes after good work by their forwards.
This only sparked Morgs into life as they ran riot, scoring five tries in the first half, two by Will Hopkins, one by Ryan Rossiter, another by Sam Carter and James Fox completing the scoring to put them 29-5 ahead.
Taunton responded with a penalty and a try on the stroke of half-time.
The second half was a slog for the Morgs defence after Taunton applied constant pressure and were camped in the Morgs 22 most of the time, but the defence held out and only conceded once in the 70th minute.
This was a tough game for the Morgs, but they all showed great composure to close out the win.
They play at home this weekend against Tor with a 3pm kick-off.
The reunion day function is also taking place this weekend, and the public and ex-players are encouraged to go along.
