Maryport ran in 11 tries in hammering Broughton Red Rose 70-10 while Cockermouth beat Wath Brow 46-4.

The games – Kells v Hensingham and Seaton A v Seaton – will be played at a future date. In fact the Kells game has been re-arranged for Wednesday night.

Young Sam Forrester simply can’t stop scoring and he helped himself to another hat-trick of tries for Maryport. Also crossing the whitewash were Ellis Nixon (2), Mark Lister, Tony Nicholson, Lee Tinkler, Phil Dixon, Alan Telford and Grant Bethwaite

Mark Walker kicked seven goals and Craig Foster added one. It had only been 24-10 at half-time but after the break Gary Murdock’s men pulled well clear.

For Red Rose there were tries for Jonny Ritson and Connor Edgar with Ritson adding a conversion.

Cockermouth had a 24-0 half-time lead over Wath Brow and virtually doubled their tally through their second-half efforts.

The Cockermouth tries came from Andrew Mitchell (2), Matty Henson, Nathan Lawman, Matt Skillen, Lee Burns, Richie Nicholson, Jack Clark and Luke Reeson.

Clarke kicked five goals.

The lone Wath Brow consolation try came from Martin Bradley.

There was a full programme in Division Two and two of the five games were particularly closely fought.

Title aspirants Flimby had to work hard for their 24-16 home win over Ellenborough Rangers. However the main talking point was a serious injury to Ellenborough hooker Andy Ostle which meant the game was held-up for thirty minutes.

Flimby had managed to open-up a 12-0 advantage by the break but were out-scored by their visitors after the resumption.

The home try-scorers were Luke Grima (2), Lewis Crellin and Ricky Morrison, with Ricky Holt kicking four goals.

The unfortunate Ostle was among the try scorers for Ellenborough before his injury while Steven Stoddart and Dave Miller also got over. Stoddart kicked two goals.

It was also fairly tight at Frizington where the home side beat Lowca 29-22 after the visitors rallied well in the second-half.

Frizington looked in command at the break, leading 23-10 but Lowca won the second-half and gave their hosts a fright.

Dean Armstrong scored two tries for Frizington and was followed over by Alex Wilson, Lewis Tinkler and Callan McGrady. Armstrong added four goals and a drop goal.

For Lowca there were tries from Callum Sirkett (2), Scott Rooke and John Sparks. Rooke put over three goals.

Not so close at Aspatria where the home side beat Salterbeck 60-10 with 11 tries, eight of them converted by Luke Johnson.

The tries came from Kevin Hetherington (2), Mark Irwin (2), Stewart Reynolds (2), Alan Douglas (2), Richard Hudson, Stuart Miller and Billy Dalton

The Salterbeck tries were scored by Lancaster and Atherton with Fitzpatrick adding a goal.

Kells A also hit the 60-points mark in a comfortable win at Egremont Rangers. They led 30-10 at half-time and after a near-identical second-half finished 60-16 to the good.

Darren Joyce (3), Jordan Burns (2), Carl Schofield (2), Stephen McCourt, Ben Milburn, Brad Smith and Callum Rowlandson scored the Kells tries. The goals came from McCourt (5), Milburn (2) and Darren Wilson (1).

Chris Temple crossed twice for Egremont with Greg Stainton also getting over. Warren Stainton kicked two goals.

In the other game Clifton Lions stayed on the pace with a 30-6 win at lowly Glasson A but they only led 6-0 at the break.

Danny Jones, Dan Riddick, Adam Wright, Paul Dobinson and Luke Naylor scored the Clifton tries while Mike Hill booted five goals.

The Glasson try was scored by: Keenan Winter with Gary Taylor slotting the goal.
