The Scorpions quickly added to their score with Marlo Sandiford and Taylor-Shepherd among others, opening an unassailable lead that culminated in a triumphant final score of 53-30.

The Scorpions dominated the first half of their match against rivals Tridents on Saturday, March 25, 2023, at the historic Garrison Savannah. Romel Moore opened the scoring with a dominant try early in the first half, battling his way through an ineffective Trident defence. The weather was extremely windy, and Scorpions Kevin Carter was, at first, unable to kick the conversions. He did score one late in the half. Youthful Thierry Taylor-Shepherd scored the first of his three tries in the first half.

Late in the half, the Tridents regrouped and were able to bring the half-time score to 22-15 in favour of the Scorpions. Those numbers do not accurately reflect the action on the pitch. Mitchell Morris and Simon John added one try apiece for the Tridents.

The second half started poorly for the Tridents, as Kevin Carter planted another five-pointer for the Scorpions, quickly followed by Thierry Taylor-Shepherd’s second score. This time Carter was able to kick the conversion. While Simon John and Mitchell Morris each scored another try, the Tridents kicking was substandard.
