Acorn continued their recent good home form but were made to work hard for the win by a dogged and enthusiastic Millom side that was in the match for long periods.
Acorn started well though when a Nick Caldwell off load created the gap for Kevin brayshaw
who handed on to the supporting Joe Budd
to score an excellent try Anthony Chilton converted
Millom continued to have plenty of possession though to trouble the Acorn defence, which had to be at its best to keep their cumbrian opponents out, any possession they did have was squandered in a performance that was turning out to be very disjointed.
Millom got their just rewards on 37 minutes where more pressure saw full back Jamie Sandham go through a gap to reduce the half time arrears to just 2 points.
The game though turned on its head straight from the kick off, Caldwell collected the kick and smartly passed to centre Martin Wood who galloped 60 yards for a sensational try, Chilton goaled for an 8 point lead.
On 56 minutes Martin McTigue
barged over from close range to increase the Acorn lead, once again Chilton goaled.
Millom though stuck to their guns and stayed in the game when hooker Lee Edmondson kicked ahead and regathered his own kick on 65 minutes stand off Paul Evans converted.
The blue and golds sealed their authority though in the last 6 minutes firstly Leigh Rientoul
was put clear after Millom dropped the ball in the tackle as he raced 30 yards and then with 3 minutes to spare Nick Caldwell came back on the angle to crash over, Chilton converted both for a 100% day with the boot.
worked tirelessly and received the man of the match award, but Aaron Thompson, Steve Mackley and Joe Budd
all had good matches.
