BEVERLEY Beavers under-11's made a great start to their season, playing some great rugby in difficult conditions against Scarborough and Bridlington.
The Beavers seemed immune to the heavy rain that coursed down in Scarborough and the two under-11 teams they fielded both undertook three matches each in two team streams.
On the left hand pitch the first match against Bridlington, Beverley were fast off the mark with two storming tries from LJ, with strong defensive tackling by Isaac.
Beverley controlled the game with successive tries from Owen, LJ, Rocco, Xavier and Adam (3).
It was a great start for new member Yaya, and great plays by Scott, Euan, with sound defence plays by Rocco, LJ, Adam and Isaac. The games with Scarborough first and seconds were the toughest, but Beverley piled on the pressure with excellent defence, rucking and mauling giving the Beavers another win with tries from LJ, Isaac, Rocco, Xavier and Adam.
Plays of excellent defence and determination were shown by all.
Meanwhile, on the right hand pitch, the Beavers notched victories against Scarborough’s first and second team by using the ball well.
Try scores came from Caylen, Will, Charlie W and James, who scored one of the best tries of the day, weaving his way through Scarborough’s defence.
Zach, Ollie D, Hugo and Charlie S were putting up a strong defence, forcing their opponents wide and shutting down many attacks.
Bridlington bravely fought back after the Beavers’ first two tries but Charlie W piled successive tries on to the scoreline.
Overall it was an amazing team performance by Beverley.
