Stockwood Park produced their best display of the season in a comprehensive 34-3 victory over St Ives in Midlands Three East South on Saturday,

Park responded in style to the return to the team of skipper Jamie Hoque and lock forward Tom Edmonds.

Hoque was part of an outstanding back row with Ben Griffin and star man Michael Powell.

Stockwood set about the visitors from the start as after five minutes, winger Eddie Wiggins scored the first of his three tries.

Further scores came from competitive scrum half Alex Lovell midway through the first half and then right winger Alex Harnett after sweeping run outside the cover defence.

Jason Carr convered both, while Wiggins went over again before half time.

In the second period, Park increased their lead despite some tricky playing conditions when Wiggins strode over for his hat-trick try.

Shortly before the end, Griffiths drove through the visitors defence to score under the posts, converted by centre Steve Pollock.

The result sees Stockwood in fifth place, 11 points behind leaders Oundle.

This week, Park travel to Bedworth RFC in their RFU Senior Vase third round tie.
