Sharks joint second after victory

Cornish Sharks
The Sharks continued their good form with a win over Hampshire

The Cornish Sharks beat the Hampshire Thrashers 21-8 on Sunday to move level with them in second place in the division two South West Conference.

The Sharks conceded the first touchdown in the opening quarter but Adam Kevern equalised soon after and they took an 8-6 lead following a conversion.

Ceowlin Hickman gave the Sharks a 14-6 lead in the third quarter.

Ricky Tanner returned an interception 67 yards for a touchdown to secure the Sharks' win.

"Every game we improve as a team on both offence and defence," said head coach Brian Smallworth.

"We have so many rookies on this team but the way they have started playing, you wouldn't believe that they are rookies, I'm proud of every one of them today."

The Sharks host the leaders, the South Wales Warriors, in their next match at Newquay Sports Centre on Saturday 5 July.
