Third loss for firsts against leading sides
●● 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.
