MATTY Elliott of Walney Cents and Barrow Island’s Dan White both crossed for a hat-trick of tries in the Cumbria League derby at Central Drive which the home side won 38-24.

The Elliott brothers – Matty and Mike – destroyed the Island, with Mike crossing for a try and kicking five vital goals alongside Matty’s three.

Island lost Callum Nelson in the first minute with a leg injury but they went close to opening the scoring when Lewis Singleton was held short of the line.

Instead it was Cents who broke the deadlock when Declan Gavin crossed on eleven minutes, catching the Island defence napping to go over from a play the ball, with Mike Elliott adding the goal.

Gavin was soon followed over the whitewash by Matt Elliott who followed up a kick ahead to gather and touch down. Brother Mike added the extra two with the conversion.

Island were soon to respond within three minutes when good attacking play saw Matt Parkinson take the ball to the home line before being tackled.

From the play the ball swift hands across field saw Dan White come back inside to crash over, with Jake Carter converting.

And when Parkinson was taken high in Island’s next raid Jack Sutherland was stopped inches from the line.

On 22 minutes a dubious decision saw Island get back to within two points, Chatfield and Irvine linked and White took four defenders over the line.

For all his efforts he didn’t look like he could ground the ball, however referee Terry Bewley saw it differently and awarded the try.

On the half hour Cents increased their lead. Dave Warne released Mike Backhouse who raced down the touchline before falling to a three-man tackle.

From the play the ball Elliott prised open a gap to go through and score.

Island came back strongly with Parkinson going close before Aidan Wright was held up. Then came the try of the match for Cents.

When Mark Bewley lost possession five yards from the home line, Tippett was first to respond scooping the ball up and parting to Matt Elliott who rounded his marker to pull clear and go in from 90 yards despite the pursuing Carter.

As the half came to a close Irvine took play to the home line going through the narrowest of gaps to feed Parkinson who crossed the line. Carter failed with a relatively easy kick at goal.

The second half was barely under way when an Island attack broke down ten yards out. Carter fed Irvine whose long ball out wide was intercepted by Mike Elliott who raced 60 yards upfield, but with no-one at home and the line open he managed to lose control of the ball.

Two minutes later a neat Whitehead pass to Ethan Furness enabled the substitute to send in Eddie Matcini at the corner, Elliott’s touchline goal making it 26-14.

And it was Matcini who pulled off a try-saving tackle on Declan Rogers. Carter was almost in for the Island prising open a gap only to be held short.

The lead was extended on 63 minutes. Matt Elliott put in a towering kick on halfway, the ball bouncing nicely ten yards from the Island line into the arms of brother Mike who, with a neat piece of juggling, touched down and converted.

Dan Wright went close for the Island before Dan White forced his way over to complete his hat-trick, Carter tagging on the goal for 32-20.

A Jamie Morrow try and Elliott goal made it 38-20 before Island grabbed a late Aidan Wright consolation try.

Ulverston leaked 16 late points in going down 32-24 at home to Glasson Rangers. A Connor Saunders try and goal gave the home side a 6-0 lead before Glasson scored 16 points to lead 16-6.

A Joe Hambley try and Saunders goal made it 12-16 at the break.

Liam High and James Armistead tries and two Saunders goals restored the lead at 24-16 before the late rally by Glasson.

Roose Pioneers are still searching for their first win after losing 48-12 at Ellenborough. Dan White scored both the Roose tries, with two goals from Adam Batty.

Distington remain top of the ladder following their 40-6 win over Maryport while Wath Brow A defeated Hensingham 46-12.

Millom finally got their first win of the season in the Conference first division but they had a late scare in their 20-18 home win over Normanton Knights.

The Woollybacks were 20-6 ahead with four minutes remaining only for the Wakefield side to hit back with two converted tries before time ran out on them.

Millom’s tries came from Chris Warren, Tom Sibley, Ricky Donaghue and Adam Kelly who added two goals.

Askam’s good run of form continued in Division Two with a 38-18 away win at Dewsbury Celtic.

The Villagers’ tries came from Ben Lewney, 2, Russ Bolton, Ethan Guy, Tom Askew, Dan Sayle, Alex Brailsford and Adam Jackson with Sam Dowsett adding three goals.

Hindpool are also on a good run as they crushed Latchford Albion 50-24 at Brisbane Park.

The Tigers’ tries came from Phil Cubiss, Rob Bower, Stu Travis 2, Brad Rowan, Paul Rickleton, Matt Archer, Shaun Robinson and Connor McDermott who also added a goal, with Jamie McIlroy goaling six.
