Burnham returned to winning ways with a thoroughly deserved victory over Keynsham thereby overturning the result earlier in the year at Keynsham. Burnham started the game brightly but were unable to turn territorial advantage into points and after 20 minutes a long kick ahead was fielded by Paul thence to Pike whose kick was gathered by Keynsham to enable their winger to cross the line.0-7,further compounded by Burnham unnecessarily going over at a maul to present Kenysham with a kickable penalty.0-10.From then onwards Burnham seemed to go through the gears and after successfully winning a scrum against the head they managed to find enough space for Tim Piper to squeeze over.Chillingworth converted 7-10.Five minutes later an interception by Burnham followed by 3 or 4 phases until eventually Ross McKechan forced his way over.12-10.Unfortunately Burnham spoilt this revival by conceding a penalty just before halftime.12-13.In the second half Burnham had the wind at their backs and began to apply the pressure and after a good scrum they completed two phases before releasing Streeter to bullock his way through Keynsham’s defence and then sweetly timing his pass to allow Russ Pike to cross the line.17-13.From then on Burnham never looked back and inevitably added to their score after a strength sapping catch and drive gave Alan House the opportunity to exploit the blind side and plough a deep furrow as he dived over.22-13. Burnham’s only problem now is that the injuries are mounting and whilst Mike Berry works considerable magic they may cause a few hiccoughs. Well done Burnham.This week Burnham are away to Matson,kickoff 2-30pm,coach leaves BASC at 11-30am.
