Carlisle under 14s played their first game under floodlights and spent the first ten minutes defending valiantly as a strong Kirby pack pushed play firmly into the home 22.

Despite several good attempts, Carlisle’s defence held out before a break saw Sam Windess well supplied with a good pass from several fast hands that saw him cross the line.

This inspired Carlisle to look for more ball and 4 minutes later Elliott Baines recovered from a big tackle to break through and grab Carlisle’s second try.

The second half started in a bit better fashion for Carlisle as Windess got his second which Baines duly converted. Despite Kirby being the bigger pack, Carlisle hooker Daniel Gisborne struck well and won 5 against the head to keep things even, eventually allowing Baines to grab a second and Windess, wonderfully fed by Harry Grant and James Spencer, completed a hat trick, converted by Baines to take the score to 29.

Kirby kept at it and grabbed a late try right on the stroke of full time which was duly converted to make the final score 29 – 7.

Penrith await Carlisle in the County Cup Final having dispatched Workington Zebras in their semi-final tonight.
