Young Greens played off the pitch at Castle Park.

Doncaster Knights 56 Scunthorpe Colts 0

Colts destroyed by dominant Doncaster Knights

On Sunday October 2nd, Scunthorpe travelled to play Doncaster Knights in the Yorkshire Senior Colts league. A very depleted team because of injury, unavailability and late withdrawals was well beaten in all aspects of the game, as the home side ran in 8 tries without reply.
The opening try after two minutes set the pattern. Strong carries by the forwards, making yardage with ease and then fast hands to backs in motion. A second, after 10 minutes, showing their complete forward dominance. A lineout then taken down and driven forward the 10 yards needed. Both tries converted. 0 – 14.
The only two bright spots of the half were when Captain Lewis Meyer took a quick tap penalty on his own 10 yard line, after Doncaster were penalised. Making 15 yards, he then put clear the supported livewire scrum half Archie Swain who made it to half way before being swamped by the Doncaster defence. Similarly, a long pass from fly-half Jess Matthews missed out the 12 and put Ben Botham into space before he was hauled down on half way.
Scunthorpe held out until 3 or 4 minutes before half time. Doncaster scored three quick fire tries to extend the lead to a half time score of 35 – 0.

A second half response was needed, but instead Doncaster scored with their first possession of the half. Two further scores made the score 56 – 0 and the game ended 15 minutes early to put an end to a very disappointing performance by the Greens.
