Beverley RUFC Under 14s travelled to Yarnbury knowing that another tough test was waiting for them, Yarnbury have lost only two games all season.
Beverley knew they would need to be at their very best to come away with a result, and with key and influential players in captain Ben Wilkinson and Nathan Cullen out through injury, the task was made even more difficult.
That said the Beverley team gave an excellent account of themselves, but unfortunately came up short losing 10-0.
In the early stages Beverley controlled the game, strong rucking from the forwards ensured that scrum half Adam Skeates delivered good ball to Eden Quantock who off loaded well all day, but more importantly kicked deep and constantly pinned the home team in their half.
The scrummage was a fairly even contest, eventually though the front row of Harry Hestleton, Alex Crockett and Oliver Lazenby started to dominate, in the lines Josh Dillon secured good ball and strong forward drives ensured that the forwards made progress at every opportunity.
In the back line Beverley carried the ball and generally shut down the Yarnbury attacking line with Alex Nuttall a constant menace and Sam Acaster fast line speed cutting down any attack that came his way.
Beverley’s best chance in first half came with a Tom Barnard interception allowed him to sprint nearly full length of the pitch, support from Oliver Jenner was tackled just short of the line.
The Yarnbury winger managed a score late in the first half leaving them leading 5-0 as the half time whistle was blown.
The second half was a very similar affair, Cameron Lawley and Harry Gunn lead the replacements soon followed with Ben Ashley and Tom Haylock entering the frame.
An early Yarnbury try gave them some momentum, but Beverley never gave up, Petrie was tackled just short following another strong run.
With all to play for and seven minutes left the Yarnbury referee sin-binned Petrie and Beverley had to play out the game with 14 players, but they gave a tremendous defensive display and although constantly being put under pressure on their own line and managed to hold out the game without conceding any further scores.
