Dalton bow out of Cumbria Cup
Published at 16:12, Wednesday, 24 October 2012
DALTON fell at the penultimate hurdle in the Cumbria Cup, as they suffered semi-final defeat at Glasson.
The home side had Dalton on the back foot in the opening 10 minutes, taking a 6-0 lead after a try right under the sticks.
This sprung Dalton into life and they started to show Glasson what they can do as centre Dan Sayle went in to cut the gap to 6-4.
Dalton were the team on top, with Adam Nicholson and Dane Laisby causing the home team all sorts of problems with their direct running. The visitors worked the ball to the Glasson posts then returned to the right, where a fine passage of play involving Matt Bolton and Jack Flynn sent Sayle in for his second try, 8-6.
Dalton had their tails up and were the dominant team, Stuart Tippett starting to find space with his good kick returns, while Jordan Woodend was having a fine game at half-back.
It was the Woodend’s half-back partner Ryan Baines who scored next as Nicholson offloaded under the posts to Bolton and he slipped the ball to the supporting Baines. Woodend made no mistake with the conversion to give them a 14-6 half-time lead.
The hosts upped their game after the break and, with the help of a string of penalties against the visitors, the momentum swung their way as they scored five unanswered tries – none of them converted – to take the tie.
The coaches and staff at Dalton thanked all the fans who travelled to Glasson to support the team.
Best for the visitors on the day were Tippett, Nicholson and Woodend.
Dalton must pick themselves up quickly as they travel to Widnes Tigers on Saturday in the North West Counties League and take on Askam in the semi-final of the Barton-Townley Cup a week today.
