Entertaining encounter for Malton & Norton third team
3:28pm Wednesday 9th January 2013 in Sport
From a tap penalty, skipper Dave MacDowell off-loaded to winger Jack Cranage to put Malt ahead.
Two Nestlé tries sandwiched a Matty Williams penalty from half-way but Malton full-back Adam’s try-saving tackle denied the York side another score and MacDowell crashed over at the other end for a 13-10 half-time lead.
Two quick tries saw Nestlé surge 22-13 ahead but Malt rallied and persistent Nestlé infringements saw centre Rob Macfall score and Williams convert.
Nestlé hit back with what turned out to be a decisive try, going the full length of the pitch, after which Malt pounded the line looking for victory.
Williams chipped over the defence and scored a fine solo try – only for the referee to instead award Malton a penalty for offside.
Williams took the three points on offer but further pressure did not bring a winner.
