Ulverston’s Master Tom puts paid to Walney hopes
Last updated at 16:23, Monday, 26 November 2012
A TOM Wilkinson try two minutes from time earned Ulverston the two points on offer as the Dragley Beck side defeated Walney Central 28-24 in the Barrow and District League.
The game was switched from Central Drive to Ulverston due to an unfit pitch and, though the home side went into a 22-6 lead, it was against the run of play.
Walney then stepped up a gear to run in 18 unanswered points to lead 24-22, until Cumbria under-17s ace Wilkinson dealt the killer blow.
Joe Miller put the home side ahead with an early try converted by Nat Patthamasing, followed shortly after by a Rob Hill effort to make it 10-0.
Matt Holmes crossed for Walney and George Nicholls converted, before Wilkinson crossed for the first of his two tries, Patthamasing adding the goal for 16-6.
He then converted a Jake Spedding try to make it 22-6 and the Dragley Beck side were in the driving seat.
However, Cents substitute Dave Nicholson ran in a brace of tries and a second came from Matt Holmes, with Nicholls converting all three to put the Cents ahead at 24-22.
With time almost up, Walney gave away a penalty from inside their own half, allowing Ulverston to sweep upfield and Wilkinson to clinch victory. Patthamasing rounded off the scoring with the conversion.
Barrow Island kept their 100 per cent record intact, but were made to work hard for their 28-22 win against Askam at Fallowfield Park.
Luke Creswell was to the fore as Island led throughout, crossing for a hat-trick of tries and adding four goals.
Matt Attard and Joe Spencely also went in for Island.
For the home side, Ben Lewney, Sam Broadley (2) and Ethan Sprout went in for tries, with Stu Porter adding three conversions.
Millom coasted to a 42-28 victory over Dalton at Haverigg’s Wilson Park.
Millom’s tries came from Tom Sibley (2), Graham Lupton (2), Scott Clarke, Ian Armstrong, first-team coach Anthony Murray and Paul Roskell, with goals from Lupton (2) and Jonathan Hodgson (3).
Harri Brown, Paul Woodburn, Lee Park, Richard Sharples and Jordan Woodend crossed for Dalton, with Woodend adding four goals.
The Hindpool versus Roose Pioneers encounter scheduled for Friday night fell foul of the weather.
The Barrow and District League have made the decision to move to Summer rugby and all A-team coaches have been asked to attend a meeting at Hindpool on Monday, December 10 (7pm start).
The meeting will discuss the possibility of playing games on Wednesday evenings, while other matters will also be on the agenda.
