Matlock U14s 40 Paviors 19

Matlock put in a fine display to overcome Paviors on Sunday.

Matlock took the lead through Ashley Cullum with Sam Doyle claiming the two bonus points, but Paviors soon got their noses in front with two quick tries.

The hosts then began to dominate, Cullum racing clear again and new boy Ben Young outpacing the defence to score, Lewis Burford converting both.

The second-half saw Matlock stretch their lead when Adam Galloway sprinted clear to go over, Burford again converting.

Paviors pulled a try back, but further scores from Doyle, who also converted, and Galloway completed the scoring.

Newark 19 Matlock U19 47

Matlock’s U19s secured a convincing away win at Newark.

Drew Mullaney put the visitors in front early on as Matlock dominated, Tris Kawalek and Mullaney again giving them a comfortable lead.

Newark scored either side of half-time but Matlock soon responded as Jim Neil and Elliott Moule put them back in control with fine tries.

A good team move then set up Kawalek for his second, before Jack Parks, Kawalek again and Charlie Short rounded off the win in style.

Matlock U16s 36 Paviors 17

Matlock produced a good comeback to seal a win over Paviors.

Paviors opened with two early tries but Joe Cruttenden answered back, converted by Sam Page, and after Paviors scored again Matlock’s Andrew Eastwood replied to leave Paviors ahead 17-12 at half-time.

But a great second-half saw Matlock take victory. Tom Lawrence went over first, converted by Page who then scored the next try.

Lawrence and Page then scored another try each to round things off, Page converting one of the efforts.
