Carlisle RFC’s U14’s travelled to Penrith last Sunday in the semi final of the County Cup succeeded in winning 34 – 12, in an exciting game.
Both sides started strongly, but in the 4th minute, from the scrum on the half way line Carlisle’s fast handling out through the backs released centre Josh Heap who sprinted through the Penrith defence to score under the posts. Struan Kyle comfortably scored the conversion.
Carlisle continued to pressure Penrith in their own half and within four minutes the home side were penalised with a penalty right in front of the posts, which Kyle again scored from. 10 – 0.
Solid tackling prevented Penrith getting through the visitors defence and from a ruck, Kyle kicked through which allowed centre Will Robson to power through & score Carlisle’s 3rd try of the afternoon.
Kyle converted. Carlisle continued to force the home side back into their own half and before half time fly half Struan Kyle chased down a kick to score Carlisle’s 4th, which was converted. 24-0 at half time.
5 minutes into the second half Robson powered through the Penrith defence to off load to Heap who scored his second try, which did not get converted. Penrith then started to come back at Carlisle and quickly scored a try, which was converted with a splendid kick from wide out to the left touch line.
Soon after though Carlisle’s Josh Heap scored his 3rd try of the afternoon, to make it 34 – 7.
Penrith did not give up and just before full time scored their second try of the afternoon.
Great result for Carlisle with a determined performance by the whole team. They now face Egremont in the County Cup Final on 1st April, at Keswick RFC.
