BEVERLEY Under-15’s produced a dominant and destructive performance away at Grimsby to secure a 57-0 victory.
The visitors were forced into several changes because of illness, injuries and players being unavailable but they began strongly and any potential fears from the disruption were settled with an early Harrison Petrie try.
Grimsby battled back to challenge the Beverley line for a 10-minute period but the visiting defence held firm and a loose ball was cleared and collected by Aaron Waring who raced away to send Nathan Cullen over for a try.
Beverley were now in the ascendancy and - as the game opened up – man of the match Jasper Ghio romped over for a hat-trick of tries with further scores from Petrie (2), Cullen (2), Cameron Lawley and Ben Wilkinson. Alex Nuttall added six conversions.
The win was proof that the pattern of play being developed over the past two months is now bearing fruit including dominant set-piece play from forwards Josh Dillon, Oliver Lazenby, Alex Crockett and Toby Ashworth supported by the tireless Oliver Waites.
In the backs, scrum half Jasper Law distributed well as did Adam Skeates in his first start at fly half.
Ben Ashley proved his versatility after switching to centre while Harry Gunn was solid at full back.
