Drybrook RFC 7 (7), Maidenhead RFC 29 (17)
Maidenhead are up to third in the South West Premier table following a hard fought bonus-point victory at Drybrook, their first away win of the campaign.
Maids' squad had a different look to the one which narrowly beat Cleve 49-46 the previous week with Nyle Crosley back in the centre, back row Ryan Long returning on the bench while fullback Olly Foxley was making his league debut.
The Forest of Dean side, nicknamed the Squirrels, are new boys this season after winning the South West 1 West title and have already narrowly beaten Exmouth 18-17 at the Mannings Ground.
In wet conditions today, the hosts took an early lead against Maids following a chip and chase from their winger.
Picking up from where he left off at the end of the last match, Maids No.8 Dave Cole then peeled off the back of a scrum to score.
Ed Keohane slotted the conversion to make it 7-7.
In a well contested head-to-head, Maids finally went in front when in-form kicker Keohane stroked home a penalty for 10-7.
Shortly after Keohane got on the score sheet again, this time with a interception try following some resolute Maids defence.
The inside centre ran 60 metres to touch down under the posts which he converted for 17-7 at half-time.
Maids impressed in the second period with a hard-hitting performance and two more tries while shutting out their eager hosts.
Second row Andy Berry maintained his try-scoring form when he dotted down following a lineout drive which pushed Drybrook back 20 metres.
The conversion was missed, but Maids added to their tally when Cole, in a trademark move, picked up from the back of a five-metre scrum and proved unstoppable.
Will Runciman slotted the conversion for 29-7.
Maids, who went down to 14 men for 10 minutes after a yellow card for George Blewitt, worked hard to hold on to their advantage and will be highly satisfied with a crucial away victory and professional team performance.
Maids are at home to Exeter University on Saturday, a team which finished second to Drybrook last season.
