KENDAL Wasps stung their opponents from start to finish as they glide through to the quarter finals of the National Junior Cup away at Scunthorpe.

The final score was 5-58 to the Kendal ladies and their season-long unbeaten run continues into 2015.

Vanessa Temple ran riot from the outset, scoring the first converted try with only a few minutes on the clock.

She went on to score four more tries in the first half as the game entered a spell of one way traffic with the Wasps playing great running rugby and looking dangerous from anywhere on the pitch.

Temple added her second and third tries with her elusive running tying the Scunthorpe defence in knots.

Sarah Simpson scored after chasing down a kick before Temple scored her fourth.

Scunthorpe saw a way back into the game when they stole possession inside the Kendal half and, after several strong carries and some good ball retention, they powered over the line for an unconverted try.

The sides went in at half time with the score heavily weighted in Kendal's favour at 5-36.

Kendal's ladies started the second half in similar fashion with Rachelle Malette scoring in the corner after great link up play between her and Bryoni Bland.

Sarah Simpson completed her hat trick with a great run and cheeky dummy - she is clearly thriving in her new full back role.

The final try was scored by Emily Knowles, who finished well after good running from Simpson.

Scunthorpe had several spells of pressure in the second half to their credit they refused to give up.

The Wasps' defence held firm and the match finished with a resounding 5-58 win to Kendal.

It was a great team performance from the Wasps, the forwards providing the platform against a much bigger pack for the backs to exploit out wide.

Players of the match were Nessa Temple, who now has 25 tries in eight games, and Tanya Bushell, who looked lively all game and formed a good half back partnership with Abby Bland.

The Wasps' next game sees them travel to Vagabonds in the Isle of Man for a very tough away fixture.
