AK just running out of steam after a hard fought contest
AK 2XV took the short trip over to Broughton Park this weekend to play for the 3rd time this season.
Kersal scored twice in the opening 10 minutes. Scores were exchanged, but it was Kersal who maintained their lead going into half-time, 26-19 up, thanks to a solid scrum from the forwards, expansive running from the backs and tries across the team.
Playing into the wind in the second half, Kersal stuck to what had been working in the first half and knew they had to maintain a big defensive effort.
Further tries were scored were exchanged, but after 70 minutes Kersal began to fall off the boil. Some big running put Broughton Park ahead and Kersal in the position of chasing a lead. Kersal had the last say and were close to pressuring a losing bonus point, match ended 55-40 to Broughton Park.
Tries: John Geddis, Alex Miyambo, Aled Thomas, Micah Dyos, Jack Snoddy, Aaron Antrobus
Conv: Jack Braithwaite (x3), Matt Tully (x2)
