Tarleton so often Ashtons nemesis couldnt handle a second half powerplay lead by Bobby, no sideshow today.


Ashton played with the winter sun at their backs first half , Aron Lancaster hoisted a towering kick misjudged by the defence doubtless dazzled by the sun and Jake Callaghan at full pace catching the ball and streaking over for a try he converted 7-0 minutes in.
Ashton had a full team out with 21 players all playing a part in a famous victory.
The visitors are deservedly top of the league after a late withdrawal at the start of the season meant they were dropped down a league, and they scored 2 converted tries to take a 7-14 lead at the break.
Bobbies introduction and redoubled efforts from all players meant the second half would be a different story. A charging Bobby making breaks put the home team on the front foot and Charlie Mc Callum benefited from one of his runs after Jake Callaghan had levelled things after a sweeping backs move gave him an excellent try which he converted as he did with Charlies try for a scoreline of 21-14.
Callaghan was to extend the lead with a well judged penalty taking his personal tally to 19 points.
Tarleton managed a late try in the corner unconverted but the Colts managed a nervy final few minutes to see out the game.
Well played both teams and the Ref played their part in a great contest.
