TIVERTON seconds were made to pay for a slow start after they slipped to a 38-23 defeat at home against Paignton seconds.

The home side conceded an early try and were 12-0 down after 20 minutes.

But they fought back valiantly and took a 16-12 lead, thanks largely to Calum Stone's accurate kicking and a fine solo try by Ben Vickery.

The second half started badly with Paignton taking the lead and Tivvy never regaining it.

Tiverton were trailing 24-23 with 15 minutes to go after they had a pushover try grounded by captain Adrian Jary, but Paignton extended their lead.

Visitors Tiverton thirds made the trip to South Molton seconds with just 15 players, and a lack of numbers was to cost them in a 15-6 defeat.

Tivvy went down to 14 players through injury and struggled from that moment on, but were kept in it with penalties from Nick Pugsley and Keith Sampson.
