Scarborough - Vikings

By Craig Bone

Cold and Windy day at Dukes Park.

Vikings playing with the wind scored after 5 minutes from Captain Rossol – converted by Rowley.

Against the run of play, Bridlington got an interception and score under the posts which was unconverted. A lot of unforced handling errors from both sides brought the half time to a close 7-5 in favour of the Vikings.

Second half is where the Vikings took the upper hand with tries from Rossol again, a brace from Tom Anderson, a great forwards try from Hooker Jordan Day, then the fleet-footed fly half Connor Ward scoring a cracking hat-trick, with Alex Rowley converting 5 out of 8 tries.

Bridlington scoring a consolation try in the corner.

Bringing the curtain down on the first half of the season putting us top of the East Yorkshire Metit table and retaining the Pinkney-Ingram trophy which is played for by the two east coast teams.

Coach Bone was again impressed on how we adapted to the elements yesterday. It’s probably the best game as a team collective yesterday, discipline was again very good especially in the second half.

Captain Rossol was man of the match and Alex Rowley was Bridlingtons choice of MOM.

Merry Christmas
