Aldwinians played out another draw against Cumbrian opposition.

They were keen to use home advantage going into a 5-0 lead against Aspatria, Andy Gidman scoring the first try of the match. However, Aspatria quickly came back into the match going 5-8 ahead after some nifty play. The rest of the first half ebbed and flowed between the 2 teams leaving the half time score at 13 apiece.

The early stages of the second half saw Aspatria go into a 13-20 lead. The next phase of the game saw both sides running the ball at each other opening up the play area which saw Captain Ben Marsland score a try to put Aldwinians 23-20 up.

The last period saw Aldwinians ahead until right near the end when they conceded a penalty which Aspatria converted making the final score 26-26.
