Kells’ continue to progress after late start

KELLS continued to make progress up the Cumberland ARL First Division table after their late start to the season.

They scored their third win in as many games when they beat Glasson 44-10, running away with the game after being held 12-6 at the break.

Dave Lowery and Ben Milburn each scored two tries while Carl Schofield, Grant McLaughlin, Connor Holliday, Lewis Smith and Ross Gainford also crossed. Milburn and Gainford kicked two goals each.

Gary Tierney scored a first-half try for Glasson, converted by Tom Dixon while Nathan Lucock crossed for their only points after the change-round.

With Maryport and Distington not playing Seaton took the opportunity to go level at the top when they won easily 54-6 at Broughton Red Rose.

The reigning champions were always comfortable after building-up a 28-6 lead by half-time and they were not seriously extended in the second-half.

Ryan Blair (3), Scott Burgess (2), Mark Routledge (2), Chris Highton, Tom McGeen, Andy McGlasson and Tom Curwen scored the Seaton tries with Miguel Blanco-Charters (3) and Highton (2) adding conversions. For the Red Rose Dan Rayson scored a try and also put over the conversion.

Tightest game was at Hensingham where the home side came desperately close to their first points of the season but were beaten 24-22 by Wath Brow.

The Hornets out-scored their hosts by five tries to four but Dean Laverick put over three kicks for Hensingham, against only two by Wath Brow’s James McLennan.

John Machin (2), Martin Barwise (2) and Kevin Williamson crossed for the Hornets while the Hensingham tries came from Darren Nicholson (2), Connor Smith and Laverick.

Cockermouth moved into the top four after their 28-10 win at Seaton A where the home side had led up to the half-hour point.

But once in front Cockermouth eased into a 16-6 lead by half-time and only conceded a single second-half try as they went on to record a good win.

The Seaton tries came courtesy of Keith Hunter and Shaun Bigrigg, with Duncan Moyle landing the goal.

The Cockermouth tries came from Shane Cusack, Jack Clark, Mark Watson, Sean Mumberson and Gareth Skillen. Clark and Skillen landed two goals apiece.

Liam Wood was Seaton A’s man of the match while Ryan Burns deserved the same accolade for Cockermouth.

Once again a Second Division game produced over a hundred points as Kells A won 66-42 at Frizington.

Frizington would have expected to win most matches after scoring 42 points which saw tries from Kyle Farrell (3), Dean Armstrong, Oliver King, Craig Branthwaite and Adam McGrady. There were seven goals from Dean Armstrong.

Ryan Groggins led the way with a hat-trick of tries for Kells A and also on the score-sheet were Travis Scott (2), Sean High (2), Nathan Maninga (2), Dan Joyce, Darren Wilson, Andrew Smith, Luke Richardson and Connor Hetherington. Brad Smith kicked seven goals.

Top scorers were Flimby who won 84-4 at Glasson Rangers A with 17 tries and eight goals from Scott Hodgson (4), Brett Smith (3) and Darren Pape.

The Flimby tries came from Brett Smith (4), Grant Underwood (3), Ryan Williams (2), Darren Pape, Tony Eve, Wayne Smith, Gary Steele, Ricky Morrison, Nathan Kirkbride, Gary McGraffin and Carl Grima.

Ellenborough were also convincing winners as they beat Egremont 62-0. They had the game won at the break, sitting on a 46-0 lead.

Andrew Burns (2), Tony Tinkler (2), Steve Stoddart (2), Alan Murray, David Miller, Dan Blaney, Ryan Wilson and Jamie Watson scored the tries with Stoddart kicking nine goals.

Aspatria and Clifton served-up a points spree as well with the Lions winning 42-34 in a tight contest. They led 24-12 at the break and were just able to hold-off the home challenge.

The Hornets tries came from Richard Holliday (2), Mark Irwin (2), Billy Dalton and Tom Gardner with Luke Johnston kicking five goals.

For Clifton there were tries for Michael Hill (3), Steven Hopper (2), Mark Fox, Jason Graham and Andrew Prest. Hill kicked five goals.
