Under 15 Driffield Away - Won 17-41

Match Report

Beverley Under-15's gained a hard-fought 41-17 victory away at Driffield on a day dominated by the weather. 

A gale force wind blowing straight down the pitch always meant it was going to be a game of two halves.  Beverley, who started playing into the wind, began brightly but were soon a try down when a loss of position, followed by a kick and chase  gave Driffield a penalty in the Beverley 22. A quick tap penalty with the Beverley defence sleeping and the home side were able to score in the corner. 

Stung by this score, Beverley started to play to the conditions, keeping the ball in the forwards and, with the front row of Harry Spence, Marcus Reid and Oshi Hopson prominent,  second row Jake Harding drove over for Beverley’s first score.

Beverley continued their tight game and a series of drives allowed Oliver Eagle to score an excellent second try.  

Driffield continued to play with the conditions and gained good field position and another quick tap penalty provided them another score under the posts to leave the half time score at 12-12.

With the strong wind at their backs Beverley started the second half well when a missed pass causing confusion in the Driffield backs and George Waite collected the ball to score his first try for Beverley with a 60m run. 

This was closely followed by Waite’s second try - a well worked team effort  allowing him to score in the corner.  An excellent line-out and follow-up drive allowed Carling to then score on the blindside before scrum half Oliver Scanlan added another while playing at open-side flanker in broken play.

The final Beverley try was scored by Alfie Celella with another superb team try.  Great credit to Driffield who continued to play rugby in difficult conditions and scored the final try of the game.
