Report

BERWICK raced to a 57-33 win over Scunthorpe at Shielfield Park – a result which keeps Redcar in with a chance of making the play-offs.

Guest Richard Lawson scored a 15-point maximum for the Bandits, and was one of four double-figure scorers with stand-in skipper Jye Etheridge racking up 15+1, whilst Jonas Knudsen scored 12+2 and Ricky Wells 11+1.

Captain Simon Lambert scored 10+1 for the Scorpions, who are now left waiting on the result of Tuesday’s Plymouth v Redcar fixture, where the Bears need one league point to regain sixth place. The result also confirms the Gladiators as play-off qualifiers.

Berwick boss Gary Flint said: “We hit our straps early and never really looked back.

“It was a dominant performance and, after demolishing Plymouth last time out, at least gives our fans a winning end to what has been a frustrating season.

“We couldn’t have had a better guest than Richard Lawson and it was also good to see Jye and Ricky back in the thick of the action.”

BERWICK 57: Jye Etheridge 15+1, Richard Lawson 15, Jonas Knudsen 12+2, Ricky Wells 11+1, Greg Blair 2+1, Theo Pijper 2, Leon Flint r/r.
SCUNTHORPE 33: Simon Lambert 10+1, James Wright 7+1, Connor Mountain 6+1, Anders Rowe 6+1, Jake Allen 2, Adam Roynon 2, Ryan Douglas r/r.
