The Tigers traded scores in the first five minutes; John Dibb crashed over in the corner for an unconverted try. Afterwards Ely were caught unaware when Lowestoft broke through the middle and offloaded for an unconverted try. A well worked move from the Ely backs saw Matt McCarthy go in under the posts for a converted try.
Soon after Lowestoft were penalised for a high tackle infringement, Stirling Fenton took it quickly, jinked through the defence and touched down for a converted try. Lowestoft clawed back a try and that was the last they would see of the scoreboard. Joel Scott Paul added a penalty before the end of the half.
In the second half Ely ran amok and it became a bit of a try fest. Dibb, McCarthy and Fenton all got their brace. Nathan Brooks forced himself on the scoreboard after he linked up with Ash Clark who put him through a gap in the defence. Soon after, Ely were on the opposition try line and Jake Alsop charged down a clearance kick and touched down over the line. Lory Martin reacted quickly after the ball fell loose from the ruck, he sprung into action, dived on the ball and ran through the opposition defence for a converted try. The score ended at 60-10.
The Tigers travel to Wymondham for their next fixture on 30th September and return home to face Crusaders on Saturday 8th October 2017.
