Veterans’ tries earn Millom victory over Kendal
Last updated at 16:49, Monday, 10 December 2012
MILLOM secured their seventh league win of the campaign with victory over a good Kendal side.
Millom began well with the forwards taking the ball up on numerous occasions.
It resulted in Kendal giving away a penalty, which full-back Neil Shaw converted to put his side 3-0 ahead.
Further pressure on the Kendal team gave Millom a line out close to the try line and, from a catch and drive, coach Steve Woodburn scored.
After the touchdown a brawl broke out which resulted in two Millom players being sin binned and one for the home team.
Further indiscipline saw a third Millom player in the bin.
Millom, down to 12 men, found the going hard and Kendal came back to score a try from a kick and chase, bringing a half time score of 8-5.
Sound tackling at the start of the second half and the reintroduction on the sin binned players gave Millom the momentum and further tries for veteran forwards Gavin McQuire and Woodburn, one of which was converted by Shaw, gave Millom a commanding 20-5 lead.
In the last few minutes Millom lost a couple of players to injury and Kendal came back to score a couple of late consolation tries.
Millom felt they produced a good performance in view of Kendal’s recent results.
The forwards played well as a unit and the backs were very dependable in defence.
Millom face a tough encounter when they entertain second-placed Silloth at Wilson Park next week.
The last time the teams met was in October, with the visitors winning 33-8.
Millom’s second team put up a good performance against Creighton despite having a lot of players drafted into the firsts, but went down 26-7 to the unbeaten league leaders.
Losing 21-0 at half time, they rallied after the break and out-pointed their opponents 7-5 in the second half. Johnny Wilson scored the Blue and Whites try, which was converted by Ryan Edgelare.
