From the start Carlisle started the brighter and had much of the possession. Playing with the breeze the Cobra’s pressured hard on the Keswick defence but couldn’t turn pressure into points until ten minutes in. Matt Bradley going over in the corner. Connon converted with a superb kick.

From here the Carlisle team pressed again and after conceding various penalties Keswick found themselves back under their own posts. A quick tap penalty leading to good hands before Luke Davison scored. Connon couldn’t.

However Keswick hit back through a superb solo effort try leaving the Carlisle lads speechless and the game was wide open again. 12-7 and with less than ten minutes to half time the cobras stepped up a gear again. Some good offload play by Lewis Read led to a try for Joel Davidson. On this occasion Connon again added the extras.

Keswick once again struck back before half time making it 19-12 at half time with everything to play for.

Into the second half and Carlisle started well, putting together some good attacking play. Keswick closed the gap with a penalty six minutes gone but this was to be their only score of the half. Carlisle number 13 Luke Davison capitalised on some slack Keswick defence to score wide out completing his hat-trick under the posts with ten minutes remaining.

With only 5 minutes left on the clock, Guy Wilkinson got on the score sheet with a superb solo effort from inside his own half. Brett Connon converted making the final score 38-15.
A very well deserved victory for the Cobras topping off a fantastic season.
