In the Cumbrian derby game in the west of the county, a late penalty goal from Lee Postlethwaite earned Millom a share of the spoils in their 22-22 draw at Hensingham in the National Conference League Third Division, writes Paddy McAteer.

It was nip and tuck throughout, with Millom going in at the break with a slender 10-8 lead with tries from Jonathan Hodgson and Kier McPherson, plus a Postlethwaite conversion.

Hensingham came back to go ahead in the second half and lead 22-20 until Postlethwaite struck in the final minute to make it all square.

Ross Brooks had earlier crossed for a second half brace for the Woolybacks, with a further conversion coming from Postlethwaite.

Barrow Island put last week's defeat at Dewsbury Celtic behind them to secure their first points of the campaign with a 14-6 win over Celtic's neighbours Dewsbury Moor.

Island went in at the break 12-6 up with tries from Adam Jackson and Joe Mallinson, both converted by Sam Jones, with a Jones penalty goal the only score in the second period.

The driving rain in the second half saw both defences on top at Rating Lane, where Jonathon Walsh made a fine return for the Island after a spell last season at Workington Town.

Stu Tippett crossed for an amazing length-of-the-field try after chipping over the cover to win the race to touchdown for Walney Central.

However his effort wasn't enough as Ellenborough came out winners 25-6 at Central Drive in the Cumbrian Men's League.

Hindpool Tigers won on the road in defeating Thatto Heath Crusaders B 38-12 after leading 24-6 at the break.

Paul Rickleton led the way with a hat-trick of tries, with two coming from Connor McDermott and one apiece from Connor Goodings, Jamie McIlroy and Cameron McDermott while Goodings added three conversions.

Roose Pioneers are off the mark as they registered their first win with a 26-18 victory over Blackpool Scorpions.

Their tries came from Harrison O'Brien, Rob Shepherd, Euan James, Ade White and Liam Armistead with Adam Batty adding three goals.

There's still no joy for Askam, after they conceded 56 points at Batley Boys with nothing in reply.
