Maryport had travelled to Cockermouth and after trailing 12-6 at half-time came back to snatch victory at 24-22.
Aspatria and Seaton A were all square at the break,6-6, but the home side forged ahead to win 24-18 but it was their four goal kicks to the visitors’ one which made the difference.
The game at Cockermouth was a splendid advert for Amateur Rugby League where the lead changed hands continually.
