ALTRINCHAM Kersal hosted Hoylake on Saturday in Lancs/Cheshire Division One and in a stop-start game they triumphed 33-5.

The home side took the lead after some good attacking effort from both teams to make the score 7-0, before Hoylake responded with an unconverted try.

However, Altrincham ran in again before half time to make the score 14-5.

The second half saw the Altrincham team run in three more tries to give a final result a comfortable look and seal a bonus-point win that sees them still unbeaten and top of the table.

The second XV played their second game of the season against Broughton Park seconds and their second cup game, knowing they would need a win to stay in the competition.

But it was not to be as, after an evenly-contested first half, the second half saw Kersal struggle to maintain possession.

It was only late on as Kersal were chasing the win that Broughton Park seized their chances and the match finished 34-14 in their favour.

On Sunday, Kersal Senior Colts continued their winning ways with a five-try haul and a 29-17 win against Liverpool Collegiate. Kersal proved to be the most composed of the two teams, with tries coming from Cormac Grieves, Jacob Ansbro (two), Aaron Antrobus and Will Holland, with two conversions from Max Brookes.

The Colts remain at the top of the league with four wins from four.

Kersal Under-15s, still fresh from their successful Marlow tour, continued their winning form with a 24-21 win against Littleborough.

Kersal firsts visit local rivals Bowdon on Saturday, kick off 2.15pm, in a top-of-the-table clash.
