Carlisle U14’s hosted Westoe, from South Shields at Warwick Road last Sunday, for their last game of the season.  The visitors came with a below par side with some team members missing and despite putting up a spirited performance Carlisle won 39 – 0.

Fresh from their recent tour to Sale, Manchester the previous weekend, the home side started strongly and from a scrum in the visitors half the ball moved quickly through the backs and out wide on the left where Marc Gallimore ran the ball over to score.  More pressure and good rucking from Carlisle saw an almost identical series of passes to release Gallimore again our on the left, within a short time.  Neither of the tries were converted.

The visitors tackled well and had several breaks, which tested the home side defence, but each time solid tackling prevented Westoe from scoring.  Good kicking from deep in defence also ensured the home side kept the play out of their own 22.

Carlisle kept pushing the visitors into their own half and from another scrum the ball went out to the right and full back James Telford drove across to get Carlisle’s 3rd try.  Shortly after, another break released Aaron Newton to run in under the posts.  Struan Kyle converted.

22 – 0 at half time.

The second half saw a strong kick and run from Kyle result in him scoring under the posts (converted) and another run from second row Charlie Pearson sent him across for the home sides 6th try.  Finally Robbie James drove over on the left late on, to close the score at 39 – 0.

A good, clean performance from both sides.
