Blues rally to claim important victory.

Byline: Andrew Stratton

NEW BRIGHTON posted their eighth victory in North One West League in the late show at Hartsfield.

The kick-off was delayed 95 minutes after the Aspatria coach broke down on the motorway and the first-half was of little significance with Luke Thompson kicking two penalties for the Blues and Kristian Borthwick one for the Cumbrian visitors. New Brighton came alive in the second period to score tries via Anthony Birley, Simione Mafi after their best move and Kati Tuipulotu.

Thompson added two goals and the home side was denied another touch down via Neil Cross because the referee was unsighted. The Cumbrians never threw in the towel in a somewhat physical clash. Steve Moss crossed after a terrific counter-attack and Jacques Rowe got in at the last minute. Jack Clegg added one goal.

The Blues are now seven points clear of third-bottom Tyldesley.
