Blackbrook 18 Dalton 14
9:21am Monday 4th March 2013 in Sport
Brook made it four wins in a row as they inflicted the first home defeat on the Cumbrians in 18 months.
Brook’s young side are begging to come of age as they force their way up the winter league table.
In a game that had everything and proved to be Brook’s best performance of the season so far, the visitors got on the score sheet first when a 50metre break saw a Sean Forber pass put centre Mark Leonard over.
Jordan Welsby converted it from the touchline.
The Barrow side then pulled level when their big prop forward Lynch barged his way over from close range for a converted try.
Brook nosed back in front as Welsby landed a penalty goal, but then pressure paid off for the homesters when hooker Monolly went in from acting half with Flynn’s conversion giving them a 12 -8 half time advantage.
An early second half response from Brook saw the ball moved out wide centre for Scott Lyon to score and Welsby equalised with the conversion.
Then the Cumbrians regained the lead when Brook were penalised for holding down in the tackle with only ten minutes remaining.
For the second week Brook had the Brown brothers to thank for clinching a well earned victory when a high kick by Jimmy Brown was pick-pocketed out of the grasp of a defenders to score the match winner, with Welsby adding the goal.
The Unite Union man of the match went to Andy Rawsthorne with Lee Johnson, Mark Leonard, Jamie McCabe and Scott Lyon all in contention.
