AK replied immediately with a great run by Alastair Merrill, finished off by John Bailey. Elliot Gourlay converted. Half time 7-7.
AK started well with fantastic break from his own 22 by Gourlay, again finished off by Bailey. Gourlay converted. Another excellent back line move finished with a reverse pass from Gourlay to James Backhouse to score. At 19-7 it was comfortable but Chester clawed their way back and scored under the posts with 5 minutes remaining. AK held out with a final score of 19-14.
AK will now play local rivals, Bowdon, in the final after they beat Wirral 10-7, with last play of their game.
