Wath Brow send Skirlaugh deeper into trouble
Last updated at 11:55, Tuesday, 12 June 2012
Wath Brow pushed Skirlaugh ever deeper into the National Conference premier league relegation mire when they won 18-10.
The Cumbrians defended resolutely, battling against a howling gale that had the corner flags laying flat, and restricting Skirlaugh to just a six point advantage at the interval. Coming out with the elements behind them they hit the hosts with three converted tries in eleven minutes of the re-start.
The difference between the sides was the dominant and youthful visitors’ pack which was led superbly by front row forward Jamie Martin, who set an example throughout the entire eighty minutes.
Skirlaugh had started brightly and after 15 minutes had a try from centre Stuart Smith ruled out.
Then seven minutes later fellow centre Lee Nobbs knocked-on with the line at his mercy while substitute Alex Foster followed suit, and how costly these were to be for Skirlaugh.
On 28 minutes, loose- forward Sean Wildbore went over to open the scoring, after been sent into space from Connor Myers pass and with Kemp converting the hosts were six points to the good.
The Hornets came out all guns blazing in the second period and hit Skirlaugh with three tries in the opening 11 minutes. In the first minute, prop forward Paul Murphy crashed over and the impressive centre Peter Caddy obliged with the extras.
Skirlaugh hardly had time to draw breath as four minutes later James McClellan crashed over and again Caddy added the two points.
The Brow were on the rampage and worse was to come for Skirlaugh on 51 minutes when full-back Jamie Divine raced over with Caddy again converting.
Skirlaugh did cross the line with when Foster shot over to make it 18-10 but two scores was beyond Skirlaugh, and it was a well deserved win for Brow.
Egremont Rangers boosted their promotion hopes in NCL Division One with a 32-22 victory over dangerous opponents, Hunslet Warriors.
