THE CUMBRIAN derby ended in disappointment for Kendal Town who lost 6-0 to league leaders Workington AFC at the ST& B Accountants Stadium.

Former Kendal Town player Brad Carroll scored a hat trick, while goals from Millenic Alli, Dan Wordsworth and a last-minute penalty by Scott Allison saw Kendal crash to their second consecutive league defeat.

Torrential rain during the week had initially put the game in doubt. But, after two pitch inspections, the Parkside Road playing surface was deemed playable. 415 turned out to watch the contest.

Playing conditions, however, were far from ideal as the soft playing surface continuously churned up throughout the 90 minutes.

Workington, who had three former Kendal players in their ranks, adapted better to the conditions. Brad Carroll saw his effort clear the bar while Scott Allison saw an attempt on goal pushed onto the post by Kendal shot stopper Morgan Bacon.

The visitors continued to pile on the pressure as Allison went clean through on goal but saw his chipped effort hit the post.

Workington finally opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time when a Millenic Allis free kick deflected into the net after wrong-footing Morgan Bacon.

Workington made an equally impressive start to the second half. The visitors doubled their lead after 62 minutes when Liam Brockbank’s low cross was powered into the net from close range by Carroll. Brockbank was fed by Symington, whose clever back heel had initially set up the opportunity for the visitors.

Carroll went onto score two more, completing his hat trick in a stunning 10 minute rush. His second came with the aid of a deflection before he completed his hat-trick sliding in at the far post from a low cross.

Workington went onto score their fifth after former Kendal player Dan Wordsworth bundled the ball into the net from another deflection, before Scott Allison scored a penalty to complete the rout.

Kendal’s only real opportunities of note fell to Emil Jaaskelainen who fired tamely at Workington’s keeper after going clean through on goal, while Christian Sloan saw his free kick hit the roof of the net.
