Carter claims hat-trick in Keighley points spree
9:00pm Sunday 27th October 2013 in Sport
Keighley 53 Acklam 26
This was an emphatic win for Keighley as they continued to show an improvement in form.
They went ahead when a driving maul after a lineout led to a try in the corner for hooker Will Armitage.
A long pass from Danny McGee gave flying winger Luke Carter a long run into the corner and Carter went over again for Ben Black-well to convert.
With a 17-point lead in as many minutes, Keighley played open rugby in their own 22 but were punished by two penalties from Danny Ashton.
Keighley got back to basics and a fine break by No 8 Stuart Inman was rewarded with a try for Alex Brown.
Acklam started the second half well with a further penalty from Ashton but the hosts responded with a try for winger Adam Horsfall, Blackwell converting.
Sam Walker added to Keighley’s tally when he chased a kick to score in the corner. Once again, Keighley opened their game up and were punished with a well-taken try for winger Ben Forbes.
McGee restored the advantage when he raced the length of the field to score after a loose pass before some direct play from Marco Ferrezzano gave Carter his third try.
Acklam’s Josh Milnes punished a handling error to score, closely followed by a second try from Forbes, but Keighley finished strongly with a break from scrum half Ian Woodwiss and a try for Blackwell.
