BEVERLEY RUFC Under-14’s finally overcame stubborn resistance to enjoy a 56-5 win over a Goole team showing lots of promise in the early stages.
The visitors started against the wind and fumbled the kick start but they were given a confidence when winning the scrum against the physically bigger Goole pack.
Beverley kept the ball in hand and moved it wide where Carling eventually found a gap to make it 5-0.
Goole came back hard and Beverley again failed to deal with the kick off leading to a spell of sustained pressure and an equalising try from the home flanker.
The visitors seemed to find another gear and the game became a superbly even contest during which an Eagle try made it 10-5 before the flanker proved instrumental in a third try as his superb run and offload found skipper Hurst.
Eagle then received a yellow card after he was adjudged to have caught the scrum half with a high tackle but the Beavers settled quickly to see out the first half with a 15-5 lead.
The team’s hard work paid off after the break as they used the wind to perfection.
Fly half Prescott pushed Goole back with a series of splendid and deep kicks that piled pressure on the back three and the home defence finally crumbled.
Beverley took full advantage with tries by Carling, Webb, Eagle, Hurst and Rodgers.
