Malton made a weak start to the game in perfect conditions on Sunday morning. They allowed the visitors to dominate play and found themselves 12 – 0 down in no time. Frustrated by this state of play, Eddie Wilson went on a lone run and scored in the corner. Still at Hornsea’s end, a scrum won saw Jack Young
with the ball on the open side. Spotting an opportunity, he switched play to the blind side and put winger Alex Caine away for a try, the scorer ably converting his own try. Although this new found flair was a joy to watch, there is nothing better than to see Jack heading straight for the line dragging a couple of the opposition with him. Taking the ball on the burst, Jack took the half-time score to 17 – 12 in Malton’s favour.
The turnaround saw Malton in a punishing mood. Throwing everything at a weakening Hornsea backline. Josh Wood
and Jack Young
queued up to cross the line. A lapse in concentration allowed the visitors back in with a converted try but this reach for glory was short lived. Stunning play from Mike McCourt
and a typical brutal run from Joe Tenge put the game well beyond Hornsea’s reach. Alex Caine converted both these tries to bring the final score to 43 – 19. This was a game that was a joy to watch.
