TEIGNMOUTH'S task against visiting St Ives is to bounce back with a win after their 19-13 defeat at Penryn.
The Teigns were ahead until the third minute of stoppage time when Penryn edged ahead with their only try of the game.
The referee found another 10 minutes of time to add on, but Teignmouth were playing a man down after losing Mike Saxton to the sin-bin and a comeback was beyond them.
Having opened up with wins over Okehampton and Paignton it was Teignmouth's first taste of defeat since promotion.
Coach Simon Morrell doesn't like losing, but this was one he could just about swallow.
"We scored two tries to their one – and they never looked like scoring a try until they did," said Morrell.
"Chances were created which we didn't finish, but we are doing the right things.
"Coming up into this division means some big adjustments for the boys and we are making them all the time."
The Teigns do need to do some work on their discipline as George Mowson and Saxton were both binned in the last 20 minutes for technical offences.
Close games are won in the last quarter and playing a man short is a real handicap.
Teignmouth tried a new half-back pairing of Neil Johns at nine, Saxton at 10 and moved Henry Raby from scrum-half to full-back. It worked well and may be repeated against St Ives.
Rob Parsons is an unlikely starter against St Ives as he was knocked out at Penryn.
KINGSBRIDGE are back at High House this Saturday for a meeting with Okehampton.
Town are earning a reputation as draw specialists in the division after collecting their second in three starts.
Kingsbridge were 15-7 up at the break away to Wellington, but despite playing against 13 men at times in the second half were held to a 15-all draw.
Sean Woodland scored a try, Kingsbridge were awarded a penalty try and there were kicks for Ben Newman and George Bamfield.
