A FINE all round show saw Windermere ease away from the Cumbria One danger zone with a comfortable victory at bottom side Creighton.

The Carlisle based hosts made the visitors battle and Windermere held a slim 3-12 advantage at the break.

But after half time, they found some and eased to a 31-8 triumph.

Try scorers for the visitors were Moses Dawson, who crossed the line twice, Bertie Hodgson, Josh Dawson and Bobby Davis, with Hodgson adding three conversions.

An experienced Eden Eagles side proved too strong for a brave Windermere Warriors side in an entertaining Women's Development Challenge League fixture at the weekend.

With the light drizzle slowly clearing, the Warriors kicked off and for the first 10 minutes played all the rugby and applied all the pressure but were unable to cross the line.

The Eagles finally settled and slowly started to get into the game, but the damp conditions led to unforced handling errors and accounted for the ebb and flow of possession throughout the quarters.

But it was the visitors who made the breakthrough when an Eagles line out move 7 metres out from the Warriors line led to Charlotte Drinkall open the scoring deep in the corner right on the first quarter whistle.

Play was still very evenly matched but just before half time it was the Eagles who scored again, moving the ball swiftly along the line to create space for Laura Stephenson to touch down in the corner.

The Warriors were still very much in the game only to be denied by the more experience Eagles defence which held fast numerous times.

But it was during the final quarter with fitness levels and concentration dropping on both sides that the Eagles greater experience told as they finally overpowered the Warriors and eventually ran out 32-0 winners.
