The second try quickly followed with again Aaron going over, with David converting again.
After more good handling and retention of the ball from the forwards, Oliver Davies went over for the third try and David converted.

This was now becoming a one-sided game, and the inevitable further try came with Aaron going over for his hat-trick try, and David converted.

Penryn 7 Newquay Hornets 61
Newquay made the journey to Penryn on Sunday in temperatures that were a test for the watching parents never mind the young Hornets.
Newquay took the game to Penryn and Evie Longworth, who was to have an outstanding game at scrum half, fed the ball out to Eddie Pearce before he streaked away to score on the left wing.
Then Hornets half Ben Hunt followed up to steal the ball away before slipping it to Ben Henwood whose electric pace saw him streak away to increase the score.
Ethan Morgan showed good speed himself to add another in similar fashion moments later. Ethan Reed, more used to brushing aside defensive lines close in to the try line, doubled his distance travelled for the season as he swerved past the entire Penryn defensive line to score.
Newquay constantly harried Penryn who continued to lose ground even when they had the ball and on the attack excellent support play among the backs saw Evie Longworth go over for a well deserved score.
Two penalties in quick succession allowed Penryn to pull one back before half time.
The second half continued with Penryn once more on the back foot and as Newquay progressed to within two yards of the Penryn line a great offload from Ethan Morgan as he was tackled saw Eddie Pearce run on to double his tally.
Ethan did the double as well, going over after Newquay won a scrum against the Penryn put in, with Evie feeding him the ball.
Sol Hawkins showed his strength and determination, taking the ball at a lineout he forced his way through several despairing Penryn tackles to score.
Two great runs from Arthur Bygrave and Jack Higginson carried the ball deep into Penryn's half once more late on, Ewan Gilroy-Simpson getting just rewards for his usual high work rate taking Jack's pass to forge through for the last try.
Man of the Match: Ethan Reed.
NEWQUAY HORNETS 50, PENRYN 5:
Newquay won the toss and started strongly with Bailey Williams making a good run but the Penryn defence worked together to stop him.
Within minutes, the first scrum saw Newquay's scrum half Bradley Davies making a good pass to Caleb Tamblin who broke several tackles before a superbly timed offload back to Brad who seized his opportunity to open the scoring.
The game then saw some lovely runs by the likes of Ben Hammersley and Declan Simmonds, but were cut short by good tackling by Penryn.
Newquay then won lineout ball nd Ben made a great pass to Caleb who used his pace to run straight down the line to score a try.
In the next phase of play, Joe Roberts was plucky as ever driving the ball almost the length of the pitch where Brad was in support to score the Hornets' third try.
Penryn then with renewed vigour, managed to catch Newquay napping and ran straight through the defence towards the line to put them on the score sheet.
Lewis Moore received the ball from the restart and made a good run and with Lucas Boucher, Joel Morison, Fin Jones and Ethan Scotland in support worked the ball up the pitch before passing back to Lewis to score a well worked try.
After half time Brad was again in the thick of the action and intercepted a Penryn pass, running towards the try line to score his third try.
Newquay then won a lineout and Toby found himself in possession and needed no encouragement to race off towards the line to add to the Hornets scoreline.
Then a great weaving run from Tyler with a good offload allowed Liam Bendall to capitalise on this to make the score 35-5.
Toby t-boned several of the Penryn players before running almost the length of the pitch to score his second try. He repeated this almost immediately with a blistering run, leaving Penryn trying to catch him to no avail.
Ben made a final run, breaking tackles and looking over his shoulder to try to spot the Penryn defence before placing the ball over the try line.
The Coaches' players of the match were Brad Davies and Toby Blount for Brad's enduring rucking and Toby's powerful runs and tackles.
Newquay Hornets 65 Penryn 35
On a bitterly cold morning, Newquay Hornets U9s turned out in force to challenge a Penryn team determined to avenge their home defeat earlier in the campaign.
The match was spread over three games and the Hornets quickly opened their account in game one through a weaving run from Kai Bentley with two more tries quickly added by Poppy Garner and Kai again to get the U9s off to a flyer.
Harvey Henwood engineered a masterstroke when in a swoop he made a block tackle, wrestled the ball away and then steamed down the line like an express train to score.
Game two signalled more of the same with Will Blount collecting four fine individual tries, spirited tackling and support play from Ben Coles, Leon Gerrard, Josh Pownall, Lloyd Cornes and Monty Bayley-Skinner widened the gap for a while before Penryn rallied.
Game three produced the best play of the match when Newquay piled on the points with the reliable Mckenzie Cooke making a brace of tries and tackling hard to the end.
Will Blatchford stoked the fires with some fine passes and mazy running, Matthew Pollard levered the ball along the lines to keep the team on track and Jacob Lamboll waiting patiently at his fly-half station received an offload from Harry Youngman and set off on his familiar jinking runs to complete his brace of tries
Harry shrugged off the numbing cold to notch another score and finally Matthew Pollard gauged a pass perfectly from a rampant Matthew Barker to hurtle down the track to cap another impressive display by the U9s.
Most Passes Count was by Matthew Pollard and Players of the Match were Lloyd Cornes and Brandon O'Hara.
NEWQUAY HORNETS 70, PENRYN 65:
Newquay Hornets started the game and within 30 seconds of the start Joshua Golden-Clarke put the first try on the score boards.
With Penryn restarting the game they progressed up the field and despite some good defence from Newquay they equalised with a try.
It was Newquay's turn to head down the field with Geren Griffiths making a good run was tagged and passed to Joshua Golden-Clarke who went on to score his second try.
There was some more fast play from Penryn who again matched Newquay's score. This was quickly followed by some excellent dodging from Geren Griffiths who carried the ball over the line for Newquay's third try.
More good play ensued from both teams but Newquay's defence wasn't quite strong enough to stop Penryn who scored another try. James Cockell made a lovely run but was unfortunately tagged just before the line but passed to Joshua Golden-Clarke who confidently carried the ball across resulting in the fourth try for Newquay Hornets.
Penryn took possession of the ball and sprinted across the try line. Good defence from Penryn didn't stop Freddy Pearce from scoring a try and taking Hornets back into the lead. Not to be beaten Penryn scored another try.
After the restart Freddy Pearce had possession of the ball but was tagged and passed to James Cockell who was also tagged but passed to Joshua Golden-Clarke who scored.
Despite some fantastic tagging from Ruby Reed it just wasn't enough to stop Penryn from scoring. Just before the whistle Freddy Pearce took possession and scored the final try of the half.
Penryn started the second half but again despite brilliant defence from Ruby Reed Penryn scored the first try of the second half.
Joshua Golden-Clarke had possession of the ball and made a great run down the pitch to score another try. Great tagging again from Ruby Reed didn't stop Penryn scoring.
Geren Griffiths in possession of the ball ploughed through Penryn's defence to score another try. Yet again great work from Ruby Reed and Freddy Pearce wasn't enough to prevent Penryn from equalising.
Some great weaving from Geren Griffiths resulted in a confident try. Penryn had a fast run resulting in a good try. This was quickly followed by Joshua Golden-Clarke steaming down the pitch taking Newquay Hornets in the lead again. Not to be outdone Penryn quickly followed suit with another try.
A lovely run by Freddy Pearce with good support form Ruby Reed and James Cockell resulted in another try for Hornets. Again Penryn determined to keep up had a great run followed by a confident try. Another good try from Joshua Golden-Clarke came straight after.
