MILLOM finally broke their duck in National Conference League Division Three at the sixth time of asking after beating Salford City Roosters 46-14 at home.

It was always going to be an uphill battle for the visitors who only managed to turn up with 14 fit players for the game whereas Millom were almost back to full strength.

The Woolyback began the better of the two sides and they got their reward after just three minutes as Joseph Wright latched onto the back of a good passing move to score followed by Adam Kelly converting.

However, Salford responded in great fashion when Paul Morgan proved too much of a handful for the Millom defence and converted his try too.

He then added two penalty goals to edge Salford into a 10-6 lead, but Millom soon took control of the game.

Kyle Evans and Adam Kelly both scooted over from dummy-half in quick succession for converted tries, followed by Connor Mitchell scoring in the corner right on the stroke of half-time through a brilliant kick over the top by Jonathon Hodgson to make it 22-10.

The home side continued to dominate in the second-half and it was Hanley Dawson who opened up the scoring after the interval with a converted try from close range..

Morgan scored his second of the match for Roosters and converted to bring the difference back to 12 but Millom hit them with another quick flourish.

Millom’s man of the match Jonathon Hodgson managed to find a way over from close range for a converted try and when Salford’s Marc Jones was sent to the sin-bin, the hosts crossed for two more converted tries from Niall Harris and Connor Terrill.
