Lancaster Bombers sealed four points for the Red Rose, winning 18-6 against the York Centurions. Lancaster put in a strong performance and never looked like losing the match.
The Bombers were defeated by York in the league earlier this season. The Lancaster Captain, Matt Neve, told SCAN that the team were determined not to lose again, and this showed in the positive, attacking ethos they adopted from the outset.
Lancaster dominated from the opening stages through the first two quarters, culminating in their impressive second touchdown just ten minutes in, delivered by Jazon Klose. A clever pass from near the Lancaster goal-line enabled Klose to make a fast break down the flanks to capitalise and claim the six points for the Bombers.
There was definitely a more defensive feel from Lancaster as the match resumed after the first half. Despite this, the Centurions were able to earn a six point touchdown in the final quarter that ended up being no more than a consolation.
Tempers started to boil towards the end of the final quarter, but Lancaster never faltered and deserve credit for their strong mentality. The Bombers have maintained their impressive unbeaten record that has stood throughout the history of the Roses tournament.
