Dinnington at home has to be a tough fixture, you know they will be a hard team to beat. What we witnessed today though was a Scunthorpe side that to every man put the effort in and made this one of the best games of the season. It was not a few individuals putting the effort in, it was a team putting effort in, and working for each other to achieve a good victory. We started the match with good line speed that put pressure on the Dinnington side straight away. The pressure resulted in a scrum 5 yards from the Dinnington try line. a great push from the scunny scrum gave Harry the ball to run through the Dinnington defence to score a try, which Josh converted. The rest of the half was like watching tug of war with two fairly even teams no one really getting anywhere fast.
The second half was looking like it was going to be the same again. Until Jack Brunt came out the back of a scrum deep in our half handed a couple of Dinningtons players off and set of down the wing. Three quarters into Dinningtons half Jack passed to Josh who accelerated away to score under the posts.This was then converted by Josh. Dinnington then put us under pressure for the last 6 minutes of the game but our defence held up and the final whistle was blown Scunthorpe 14 Dinnington 0. Special mentions go to the whole team for their effort working for each other. Welcome back Owen who put in some fantastic tackles to keep Dinnington at bay. Also all out thoughts are with Jack Brunt who hurt his leg in the last tackle of the game. Hope everything is OK Jack.
