'Stoke crash out of Hampshire Cup
3:17pm Sunday 11th November 2012 in Sport
HOLDERS Basingstoke RFC are out of the Hampshire Cup following a shock 20-17 defeat at the hands of Winchester at Down Grange on Saturday.
The visitors, who play their league rugby two divisions below 'Stoke, raced into an early 10-0 lead and were never pegged back by the much-changed hosts.
The advantage was extended to 17-0 before half-time and while Steve Osborne, Ryan Davis and Gavin Dampies scored second half tries for Basingstoke, they were unable to complete the comeback.
