Your News Carnforth 10 - Hutton 108

Hutton registered their second 100 point haul of the season as they ran in 16 tries in a comprehensive victory away at Carnforth. The win secured the North Lancs 2 Division title and a long overdue promotion for next season.

Despite making five changes to the team that defeated Ormskirk, Hutton were too strong for a Carnforth side that had no answer to the visitors fast-flowing game. Hutton started the game brightly, running the ball at every opportunity and finding holes in the home side defence. It didnt take long for the first try to arrive, with Craig Cameron finishing off a move down the blindside. Hutton crossed for their second try minutes later when Andy Tobutt collected his own chip and offloaded to Brian Harris who touched down under the posts. Despite the early lead, Hutton were guilty of giving away silly penalties at the breakdown and Carnforth converted a midfield penalty to bring the score to 14-3. The visitors responded well and took the game to Carnforth once more, Phil Caslake crossing from the base of a scrum and then James Worrall intercepting a pass to race clear. Hutton continued their scoring spree when a good break by Adi Harrison found Andy Tobutt in support, and the fly half touched down under the posts. The visitors bossed the scrum, winning a lot of ball against the head which provided the platform for further attacks. Good support play allowed full-back Jim Goulden to score the sixth try of the half, all converted by Tobutt. Wing Ben Fleetwood completed a flowing back move to score in the corner, before Caslake and Worrall scored their second tries of the game after good support play from forwards and backs. The first half scoring was completed with second row Kevin Strange rounding off another series of offloads and Goulden crossing for his second try. Tobutts conversions took the half-time score to 75-3.

Hutton began the second half in similar style, looking to score with every attack. Despite a scrappy opening to the half, Hutton crossed for the first try of the half when Paul Johnson broke clear to dive over. The forwards using their rolling mauls to good effect and when another drive was held up short, prop Damian Mercer burrowed over from close range. Another team effort resulted in Worrall completing his hat-trick and the visitors then reached the 100-point mark when flanker Danny Ambler broke through the defence and dived over to score. The rout was complete with Cameron scoring his second try, another speedy break allowing the centre to cross underneath the posts. Tobutt added further conversions to take the score to 108-3. With 20 minutes remaining, and tired bodies on display, Hutton let their standards drop and this allowed Carnforth a sustained period of pressure in opposing territory. The hosts were rewarded for their spirit and determination with a converted try in the final ten minutes. The final whistle was greeted with subdued celebrations by the Hutton side who now turn their attention to next weekends Lancashire Plate semi-final at Warrington and final league game against Colne and Nelson.
