Ramsey suffer second successive home defeat
Douglas claimed a 20-18 away win at St Benedict’s in North One West on Saturday to make the long journey to Whitehaven worthwhile.
Missing a few regulars, the Douglas squad stepped up to the mark in a game which was a potential banana skin.
Paul Leivers, Cark Markl-Ferns and Max Morley-Green all crossed for tries for Douglas with Bryn Snellgrove adding a penalty and a very important conversion which was ultimately the difference between the two sides.
There was more misery for Vagabonds in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division Two.
The last time Vagas won was against Heaton Moor 12 months ago this weekend.
However, any hope of a lucky omen was quickly dashed as the visitors went on the rampage to run out 111-3 winners at Ballafletcher.
Vagabonds’ only points came from a penalty kicked by player coach Michael Oates.
The fortress Mooragh Park is no more as Ramsey lost their second home game on the bounce in South Lancashire/Cheshire Division Three (South), going down 38-17 to Mossley Hill.
A debut try from youngster Hari Radford, converted by Dan Bonwick, kept Ramsey in touch in the first half.
Mossley Hill raced away with it in the second period and late scores from Bonwick and Nathan Thompson were little more than consolations.
