Published at 19:41, Thursday, 01 May 2008
Cockermouth are through to the U14 County Cup final after beating Penrith 22-0.
In a strong wind, the initial phases of the game were hard and furious with little territorial advantage.
The deadlock was broken when from a scrum Cockermouth managed to get the ball along the backs and Liam McAvoy burst threw two tackles to score under the posts. Michael Fearon converted.
Cockermouth added an unconverted try by Adam Byers and then had to contain some intense Penrith pressure.
Cockermouth went on the attack when Josh Whild took a quick penalty to run from the half-way line to be dragged down five metres out and from the ruck Kian Spence picked and drove over in the corner for an unconverted try.
In the second half Cockermouth had edge in territory and possession and completed the scoring with an Andrew Adderson try.
Workington Zebras U13 took on a big Carlisle side and scored when Tony Quinn raced over. Captain Tom Walker added the goal.
Carlisle responded with an unconverted try and the first half continued even and by the break the score was 19-19, Connor Irving and Quinn getting Zebras’ touchdowns.
In the second half Carlisle had more possession and scored two more tries but then Zebras hit back.
Good play by Ryan Bracken, Jack Williamson and Dan Fryer put Irving over and Walker added the conversion. Quinn then crossed for two more tries.
