KENDAL are celebrating a dominant win against Penrith in their latest Rugby match.

With the same team which started against Altrincham Kersal the week before, Kendal Rugby took on the fifth placed Penrith carefully but made progress from the start.

Lewis Kincart won Glen Weightman’s kick off to put Kendal on the attack, but Penrith were able to hold them off from scoring too early.

It was Chris Park who opened the scoring with a penalty after five minutes to make it three nil.

Penrith fought back and won their own restart kick back and put Kendal under pressure.

After twelve minutes a Penrith prop was yellow carded for a dangerous tackle, on Kendal scrum half Lewis Kincart. Kincart fought on regardless.

The first try of the game came after a quarter of an hour when Kendal won the scrum and through several short bursts of play but Steven Nelson over the line followed by a kick. It was ten points to nothing.

After half an hour, Danny Barker was forced off with an injury after being trapped at the bottom of a ruck, and Nick Carlton replaced him, but Barker was back before half time.

Penrith’s opening try came when fullback Brad Taylor broke through and put the ball over the line. A conversion from Mike Fearon made it ten points against seven.

In half time, Kendal opened up with a series of relentless attacks which saw Kris Bratton and Dan Shorrock score to put Kendal on 22 points.

Kendal brought their bench on with Ben Leacock replacing Liam Hayton, Dane Blenkharn, Dan Greenwood and Nick Carlton, Chris Park.

Just before the half hour Matt Houghton was forced off with an injury with Dan Greenwood returning.

This remained the score until the end of the game where the results where 22-7 for Kendal.

Glen Weightman was once again named Man of the Match.
