Otley 19, Stourbridge 27

SPEEDMERCHANT Josh Trinham produced another memorable try which effectively turned the game in Stour's favour at Otley.

Home grown product Trinham has proved a real find following his promotion from the Lions this season and his turn of pace has now become a real threat at National League level.

Otley had made the better start and gone 7-0 up with a try in the corner from left wing Toby Harris which full back Nick Coupland converted.

Stour seized their chance to turn the tables when Otley had back row player James Wood yellow carded on 26 minutes following a late tackle off the ball.

Fly half Chris Scott cut the deficit with a penalty before wing wizard Trinham made a timely interception and sprinted some 60 metres to score just after the half hour mark, Scott converting to put Stour 10-7 ahead at half time.

Trinham's try knocked the stuffing out of Otley and Stour began to turn the screw immediately after half time.

Outside centre Joe Heatley started and finished a move after the ball was recycled to score on 43 minutes, Scott converting.

Three minutes later right wing Ash Elvers came into the line and burst through to secure an unconverted try.

Stour piled on the pressure and then forced a series of five metre scrums before the ball was whipped out to fellow centre James Otutaha who went over for the fourth and bonus point try on 63 minutes.

Leading 27-7, the result was effectively out of sight, but credit to Otley who kept going and were rewarded with a try on 69 minutes, scored and converted by Coupland.

Centre Mike Coady then snatched a third try for Otley two minutes from time, which came too late to alter the outcome as Stour look to cement third place in the table.
