CAMP Hill stormed to a club record win on Saturday, after they blew away the Telford Hornets 129-0 in Midlands 2 West (North).

The victory surpassed the 103 scored by the club in 2008 in Telford, and the 21 tries scored surpassed the 18 against Warwickshire Police in 1968.

Steven Leach opened the scoring with the first of an eventual six tries scored, before Ben Summers scored in the corner from Dan O’Grady through-the-legs pass.

Barney Edwards secured another try and a bonus point on 23 minutes when going between the posts, before Leach and Ben Taylor followed suit.

Next to score was Alex O’Malley with his first try for the club after arriving to the action from the bench, before Leach secured his hat-trick try.

O’Grady rounded off the scoring for the half, as Camp Hill led 55-0 at the break.

The one-way traffic ensued after the interval, when O’Malley struck with a second try, followed by Edwards’ penalty.

Lloyd Roberts extended the scoring, whilst Leach added yet another try, whilst centre Mark Lisle added his name to the scoreboard with a solo run.

Second row Shawn Lindeque scored his first for the club in his five years of service, marking a memorable occasion for him.

Roberts, Stephen Habert, another for Lindeque, a third for O’Malley, Harry Cunningham and two more for Leach rounded off the scoring.

Camp Hill hope to have more success, although likely not to the same extent, at home to Veseyans on Saturday (3pm).
