BEVERLEY Under-15’s gained sweet revenge for an early season friendly defeat to Goole by beating them 47-12 in the Yorkshire Cup first round.
Goole are a very capable side but a now near full strength home team forced them back in the early minutes and fly half Eden Quantock sent centre Nathan Cullen away for the first try of the game.
Lock Josh Dillon then added a second, converted by Quantock, before the fly half kicked clear as Goole pressed and Cullen gathered before freeing winger Ben Ashley who raced over for his first try of the season.
A lapse in concentration allowed Goole to reduce the arrears with a converted try but hard-running captain Harrison Petrie crashed over to make it 22-7 at half-time, before adding his second shortly after the break.
The home forwards were in control, despite losing hooker Alex Crockett to injury. However, the team momentum continued and Tom Barnard added another Beverley try before rare defensive mistake allowed a second try for Goole.
Barnard then added his second to complete the scoring in a game which saw Petrie awarded man of the match with special mentions to Dillon, Cullen, Sam Acaster and Ashley.
