THE Isle of Wight took the local bragging rights after beating Ventnor 17-31 on Saturday.
A superb first-half performance gave Ventnor too much to do at Watcombe Bottom, while the home side also lost Ed Blake to a serious injury.
Also in Hampshire 1, Sandown and Shanklin lost 41-12 at Ellingham and Ringwood.
