Ellesmere Pt 5 Hutton 44
A YOUNG Ellesmere Port side bid farewell to the EDF Junior Vase on Saturday after putting in a spirited performance against North Lancs League side Hutton.
The visitors scored after 15 minutes but Port set about clawing them back, levelling with a try of their own.
By half time Port were trailing again, 17-5, but had given a good account of themselves.
After the interval Hutton struck hard and fast to put the game beyond their hosts. But the Port youngsters never threw in the towel and, despite the ever-climbing score, Port showed no sign of being dispirited during the game.
Port return to action in South Lancs/Cheshire Three on Saturday when they travel to Marple.
