VIDEO: Quick win in Uppies and Downies 2017 series
Tactics won out in one of the shortest Uppies and Downies game in Workington in recent years.
Uppies, who have to get the ball to Workington Hall, hailed the ball in a record 26 minutes on Saturday, netting them the 2017 series win.
Jamie Friel, brother of Tuesday's hailer Liam, was the victor. Downies, who have to get the ball to Workington's harbour, started off well after the throw-off at 6.30pm at Cloffocks bridge, by getting the ball into the beck almost immediately.
But Uppies fought back and two big throws saw the ball hurled onto the field behind Borough Park.
A massive dummy run by Workington Cricket Club, orchestrated by the Uppies, saw confusion reign just 15 minutes into the match.
Jamie Beaumont had the ball in scrum and slipped it backwards to Jamie Friel, 28, of Westfield, who scooped it up, stuck it up the front of his jumper and got away while someone else made a break for it.
The scrum was fooled and Uppies managed to spirit the ball away while players were left scratching their heads and a search for the ball began.
A short time later, chants of "up, up, up" were heard from Workington Hall and the Downies knew it was all over.
Liam said: "It's the best feeling ever. I can't remember two brothers hailing it in the same year before and it was the quickest game I've played in."
The ball was thrown off by Rhiannon Clark, granddaughter of veteran Uppie Joe.
Downie Keith Hunter hailed the ball on Good Friday.
