Winner of today’s game would be in the play offs so it was another huge game at silver Royd.
Scarborough started well against a very competitive young Malton side.
Training park move with Morrell and the returning Flying Viking put Tom Anderson in for his first of his 3 tries. After 10 minutes a break from Rennard put in Emsley under the posts, converted by Tom Read. Great forward work, again with a break from Will Rennard, puts Owen Davies under the post – converted by skipper Rossol. Magical break from Conlin put White in under the posts, Rossol converts again – try bonus point already achieved. Mirror image of the previous try – Conlin doing the hard yards and White benefitting, converted by Rossol. Half time 33-0 in favour of the Vikings.
Malton scored a great team try which was converted. Tom Anderson scores a brace of tries to finish off a great day with back-to-back hat tricks. Finishing 45-7 to Scarborough Vikings.
Stand out performances – Jeffery and Conlin controlling the backs; Paul White and Tom Anderson scoring 10 tries between them in the last 2 games; Rossol, Emsley, Holloway, Hutchinson and Read taking us forward time after time. Nellist, Peate, Day and the young Tom Fish giving us the platform to give an outstanding team performance – keeping our shape and structure for most of the game and got the result we deserved.
