A poor result on the road

Wests went to Malton with a few changes from last weeks winning team, with Sam Marshall celebrated his promotion to a starting berth with a heavy night out before the game.

Almost immediately from kick off Jack Marshall was sent to the bin for being offside, and Malton seized on this opportunity to race in to a 10-0 lead thanks to two trys out wide. Wests then returned to a full compliment and looked more threatening, but final passes seemed to go to ground and lots of chances went begging. Eventually Malton infringed and Wests were able to take a penalty, that man Jack Marshall striking the ball like Carlos Valderrama to take the score to 10-3 at half time.

Just after the break Wests again added three points when Jack Marshall added another penalty to his tally as kicker to take the score to 10-6.

Wests were again on the attack but Malton’s defence proved a stern test and it took almost 20 minutes for WL to cross the try line, John Marshall making the family name proud again, although his son Jack missed the conversion and Wests were in the lead. 10-11.

The kick-off was not taken, then a poor scrum gave Malton the chance to attack. They were awarded a penalty try by the referee to take the score to 17-11 and then with 9 seconds left the referee was ran into and knocked to the ground. After a few minutes he came round and decided to proceed with the final seconds, which was ample opportunity for Malton to score another try under the posts. 24-11.

Tom Jackson was awarded man of the match by Malton for a number of strong runs.

A poor result for WL and I imagine a poor game to watch, next game is Bees at home.
