Rossendale Free Press - - Motors - 10 38

●● Ac­tion from Rossendale’s game against Lymm NORTH PREMIER DI­VI­SION ROSSENDALE LYMM GE­OFF LIGHT­FOOT ALTHOUGH an­other dis­ap­point­ing de­feat this was a far bet­ter per­for­mance than that of the pre­vi­ous week.

It is also worth bear­ing in mind that th­ese three con­sec­u­tive de­feats have been against the three top sides in the league. It might be some re­lief to be away at bot­tom of the ta­ble Mor­ley this com­ing Satur­day where a re­turn to the win­ning for­mula can be ex­pected!

Lymm were on the score board within min­utes of the start with a try from Cormack Nolan, who also added the con­ver­sion.

Matt Con­nelly went over for the sec­ond, the try em­a­nat­ing from in­side the Lymm ‘22’ by Con­nelly who came back in sup­port to cross wide out.

Sam Mu­larky brought up the third, also con­verted by Nolan, be­fore go­ing in him­self for the bonus score, chas­ing a chip over by Richard McEvoy on the back of a break by Tom Bray, Nolan good with the ex­tras for 0-26 at the in­ter­val.

Rossendale looked much bet­ter in the sec­ond pe­riod but, although creat­ing a num­ber of op­por­tu­ni­ties, they were un­able to put them away.

Lymm, how­ever, con­tin­ued to forge ahead with tries from Ol­lie Hig­gin­son and McEvoy, con­verted by Nolan.

In be­tween, Rossendale had got Ge­orge Peel over, first there chas­ing a kick ahead by Lewis Allen with Cur­tis Strong fin­ish­ing off an at­tack in­sti­gated by Allen and good hands from Peel and Jack Ward.
