Millom ended a run of seven straight defeats in Cumbria Division One, as they defeated bottom side Creighton 37-5 at Wilson Park in one of the few matches to survive Storm Dennis.

Conditions were hardly conducive to running rugby, but the hosts were able to play some good stuff in spite of this to record sixth win of the season, and their first since they edged a thriller against Egremont at the end of November.

The result moved them up to ninth in the table ahead of their two-week break from action and they should head to Carlisle Crusaders in good spirits on February 29.

Windermere also beat the weather, but they were unable to defy the odds as they went down to a 27-5 defeat at Wigton, who moved up to second, three points behind leaders St Benedicts.

It took until the 37th minute for the deadlock to be broken when Robert Marrs went over for the hosts to give them a 5-0 half-time lead and that was extended in the second half as Elliot Armstrong went over twice.

Richard Moffatt then set up Matthew Harrison for Wigton's bonus point try and they added a fifth through Charlie Studholme before Windermere finally added a late try to reward their efforts.

Hawcoat Park will try against Silloth on Saturday, after that match was postponed, as will Furness against Carlisle Crusaders at the Strawberry Grounds, if the visitors can raise a team.
