BEVERLEY Under-16’s travelled to Yarnbury on Sunday emerging with an excellent 27-10 victory over the Leeds side.
Constant rain meant playing conditions were greasy with handling difficult but the visitors took an early lead through winger Harry Vorwerg.
Beverley's forwards once again began to dominate in the scrums and rucks and second rower Kai Johnson crashed over the line from ten metres to make the score 10-0 at half-time.
Five minutes into the restart, mobile prop forward Tom Megson delivered a killer blow to the opposition, bursting through the defence to score.
Then followed the try of the game started with a wonderful Sam Peers cross kick from 20 yards out. Archie Murdoch chased well and leapt above the defenders hands to collect the ball mid-air above the try line to land and score.
Meldon added the conversion and bringing the score to 0/22.
Beverley's final points came from hooker Jan winter and at 27-0 with ten minutes to go the game was effectively over. However, to Yarnbury’s credit they hit back with two good close range tries to make the score line respectable.
This was a very positive performance by Beverley, who overcame a good Yarnbury side.
Beverley gave away an unusually high number of technical penalties and were on the wrong side of the whistle for most of the match – something they need to learn from.
