Zander Reid hat-trick helps Butleigh RFC beat Evercreech
Butleigh 37 Evercreech 10
Torrential rain could not prevent a display of running rugby from both teams as Butleigh comfortably defeated Evercreech.
Veteran James Atkins led a huge Evercreech pack that gave the Butleigh forwards a torrid time in the set-piece and it required some magic moments from Matt Coley, coupled with three well-worked tries from youngster Zander Reid, to seal the victory.
Ollie Harras scored his first senior try for Evercreech, while Sam Cockle took a superb drop goal. Tony Burns also impressed in his first-ever game of rugby at the age of 44.
Butleigh take on Frome on Sunday.
