Kells A score 'golden point' to beat Great Clifton in play-off
Last updated at 11:54, Monday, 12 November 2012
For the second time this season, an Iggesund Cumberland ARL play-off game went to extra time.
Two weeks ago Aspatria ran away from Ellenborough in the extra time period to win their Division Two play-off clash.
This time, however, Great Clifton and Kells A could not be separated after extra-time and it needed a golden point to decide the contest. Dan Joyce scored a try for Kells AS to give them a 14-10 victory.
Clifton were winning 6-0 at half time with a try by Mark Fox, converted by Mike Hill and although Paul Dobinson crossed in the second half Kells had levelled by the end.
Joyce and Nathan Mann scored tries for Kells A, one of which was converted by Ben Milburn.
Extra time failed to produce a winning score and it was sudden death when Joyce went in again for the golden points.
In the Division One play-off game Distington, beaten by Kells, won at the second attempt. They beat Glasson Rangers 22-6 after leading 10-6 at half-time.
A touchdown from Gary Tierney, converted by Greg Rowley, was all Glasson could manage in the first-half and they were unable to add to that after the change-round.
Distington scored four tries from Stephen Newall, Aiden Worthington, Gavin Martin and Grant Dryden. Scott George kicked three goals.
