Beverley Under-16’s hosted Doncaster on Sunday on a wonderful spring day and perfect conditions for rugby.
The visitors kicked off with an error as the ball found touch on the full. Doncaster then nocked on the Beverley kick and were put under sustained pressure from the hosts. Doncaster desperately needed a boost and mounted some strong attacks in the early stages but Beverley's defence held strong with try saving tackles made by Josh Cammack and Tom Wright.
The first try would prove to be decisive and it was Beverley's George Bennett-Teare who crossed the whitewash first after 11 minutes of play - one of five tries he was to score on the day. Kai Johnson added the conversion.
Beverley struck again when Harry Vorwerg danced through tackles from his centre position and accelerated from the half way line to outrun Doncaster's valiant cover tackles, Johnson again adding the extras. Tries began to flow and as the hosts confidence grew, the visitors hearts dropped. The half time whistle blew with a score line of Beverley 38 Doncaster 0.
The second half continued in the same vein and Beverley were as determined in defence as they were in attack, keeping a clean sheet until the final whistle.
Doncaster showed glimpses of what the could do and their physically bigger players drove a wonderful maul at one stage and almost scored in the final minutes but were held up over the line. It was the small things that made the difference and Doncaster's errors cost them dear and heads went down.
Beverley's try scorers on the day were George Bennett-Teare, Harry Vorwerg, Archie Murdoch, Lewis Egan and Ben Found.
Man of the match went to Archie Murdoch, and special mention again to Tom Wright as full back, who again tackled his heart out against some huge Doncaster players.
