Creighton 2nds were the visitors to Warwick Road on Saturday (20th September) and stirring the proverbial ‘Hornets Nest’ is probably an apt description, because Creighton were stung, certainly as far as the scoreline reads!

Although the scoreline suggests a walkover, Creighton played very well for the first 40 minutes, their forwards at times turned over balls that should have been well protected and put the hosts under a great deal of pressure.

23 pts to 14 pts at the break probably probably flattered the Hornets, but the secvond half was a totally different matter.  The introduction of several fresh, young players, coupled with Creighton showing signs of tiredness, was just a step too far for the visitors.  Carlisle had a large squad and thanks are due to the Creighton lads for letting everyone have a run out.

Final score 71 pts to 14 pts.

The trip to Silloth on 27th September should be interesting!
