Altrincham Kersal 12 Wirral 18
2:46pm Monday 4th March 2013 in Sport
AK 1st team entertained Wirral on Saturday, who were on a run of six consecutive wins.
Both teams played open and entertaining rugby in the first half and AK nearly scored on their first attack with Jack Wise being stopped just short of the line. However Wirral were to open the scoring when their winger went over in the corner.
AK hit back with two long range tries from wingers Tony O’Connor and Jack Wise, one of which was converted by Rob Holloway. Wirral though were able to reduce the deficit before half time to 12 – 11 with two penalties.
Both defences were on top for most of a very evenly matched second half but Wirral pressure midway through the half led to converted try and eventually an 18 – 12 win for the visitors.
On Sunday the AK Under 16s beat Stockport 39 – 0 with tries from Lucas Kennedy (2), Sam Yarrow, Ed Brady, Alex Fry and Adam Welton (2), who also kicked two conversions.
The AK Under 13s also beat Stockport 10 – 7 with tries from Tom Ashton and Connor Doherty.
Next Saturday AK 1st team are at home to Fleetwood, kick off 3pmat Stelfox Avenue.
