Newton began to make a bigger impression as the second half unfolded and reduced the lead when James Dudley carried the ball from inside his own half. Henry Bunclark added the two points to make it 10-7.
Then, from inside the opposition half, Josh Flower offloaded to Bunclark who ran 40 metres to dot the ball between the posts. He converted his own try to give the All Whites a 10-14 lead as the game tipped into time added on.
It proved to be an uncomfortable time for the visitors as Barnstaple threw everything they had to snatch victory, but Jake Sokolowski's last gasp try-saving tackle nailed the victory for an elated Newton Abbot.
