They started strong and put multiple phases together in the Maldon half before Harrison Sykes opened his account for the club.

Bakers were putting pressure on the visitors but despite their best efforts they were unable to stop the hosts as they were able to level the score.

The Dagenham youngsters restored their lead when Sykes was able to pounce first after a scrappy ruck and he was able to touch down again shortly after to bag a hat-trick and put Bakers two tries up.

Bakers were conceding a lot of penalties and Maldon were able to cross the whitewash under the posts to cut the gap to three points.

The hosts touched down again to give them the lead for the first time in the game but Bakers managed to regain the lead and soon took the lead again to make it 20-19 at half-time.

Maldon restored their lead early in the second half, before the visitors clawed it back and added the extras to give them the lead again by a solitary point.

They then touched down again and added the extras in what was becoming a seesaw of a game.

Bakers again took the lead after turning the ball over to touch down through Lewis Fleming.

But Maldon managed to score another to edge themselves in front with five minutes left in the game, before adding another with just seconds remaining.

May & Baker under-10s enjoyed more success as they cruised to a comfortable victory against Upminster.

Bradley Landers carved through Upminster’s defence to score the first try straight from the kick off.

After their early score they got their defensive line set up, but Upminster exploited a gap to level the score.

The hosts managed to get back on the score sheet thanks to Jake Landers before Finley Orchard, Mikey Birch, Billy Rayner, Frankie Landers and Jake Landers all scored.

In the second half Kian Davies scored his first try of the season while Tyler Parish manoeuvred his way through to touch down and Davies then added another with the final play of the game.
