ONLY six games survived the weather in The James Cropper Westmorland League as the miserable weather blanketed the area.

Persistent rain fall saw the majority of games washed out, while freezing cold conditions made it a hard fought afternoon for the few teams who managed to get a game in across all three divisions.

In Division One, Wetheriggs United picked up their sixth consecutive win after they won 3-1 at Kirkoswald.

Andrew Murray Jones, Lewis Windle and Ryan Gate were on target for the visitors who remained fourth in the table.

In the only other top flight game to go ahead, Shap and Sedbergh Dent United battled out a 1-1 draw with Shap now third from bottom as they continued their resurgence in form.

In Division Two, Kendal United Reserves and Penrith Academy drew 1-1 at Castle Drive in a contest which played in freezing weather conditions.

Heavy hail showers and cold temperatures greeted both teams after the game passed an 11am pitch inspection.

United dominated and created lots of opportunities with Matt Kennedy seeing his penalty saved by Tom Birkett during the first half before the striker saw his effort rebound off the post.

And the home side finally opened the scoring midway through the first half after Kennedy headed the ball into the net from a corner.

However Penrith, who only travelled with a squad of 12 players, battled back when Tom Graham netted the leveller from close range.

Kendal pressed for the winner throughout the second half while Penrith had some chances of their own but the game ended all square.

Keswick Reserves also managed to get a game in and they climbed to the top of Division Two after a resounding 7-0 win at Ibis Reserves.

In Division Three, Simon Brough's hat trick guided Wetheriggs United Reserves to a comfortable 6-0 win against Staveley United Reserves while Langwathby United saw off Eden United 4-2.

The weekend action brought the curtain down on 2019 for the Westmorland League which returns on Saturday, January 4.

In the West Lancashire League, there was no local action as both Kendal County and Milnthorpe Corinthians saw their games postponed.

The league also returns with a full set of fixtures on January 4.
