Altrincham Kersal 2nd XV had a lengthy trip away on Saturday as they travelled north to play Penrith 2nd XV.
Penrith were the first to score after 5 minutes and it was not long before Kersal responded to keep the margin close with fly-half Jacob Daldrey slotting a penalty making it 7-3. After a lengthy stoppage with an opposition player tearing ankle ligaments, Penrith again scored to extend their lead and gain momentum.
Kersal did not let the scoreline or circumstances let their heads drop, and it was in the second half when, despite depleted numbers of 12 players due to injuries, Kersal spread the ball through hands and Jack Snoddy weaved his way passed the defense to dot down the ball under the sticks - a score to add to stand out performance from the full-back.
Kersal stuck at it with spirited efforts in attack and defense right up until the final whistle, as the match finished 62-10 to the home side.
Tries: Jack Snoddy
Conversion: Jacob Daldrey (x1)
Penalties: Jacob Daldrey (x1)
Next Saturday the side face return to home to play against Sandbach 2nd XV.
