Comfortable for seconds

Lincoln 2nds 7

Matlock 2nds 36

Matlock seconds travelled to Lincoln last Saturday and came away with a good victory.

Despite struggling in the scrums throughout the whole match, Matlock made much better use of the possession they did get and strong defence made the victory secure.

Tom Hooton scored and converted his own try to give Matlock the lead followed by an unconverted try for Luke Howard, which was cancelled out by a converted try for the home side.

Hooton then scored his second try of the match converted by Bance for a 19-7 half-time lead.

In the second-half Marcus Bolam scored Matlock’s third try before Hooton went over for his hat-trick, Bance again converting.

Bance then crossed the line for the final score of the match which saw Matlock deserved winners after a fine team performance.
