St Albans Centurions are through to the East Rugby League Cup final after a 38-24 win over King’s Lynn Black Knights.
Having already won the nine-a-side crown, this gives them a great chance of adding to their trophy collection this season.
With some of the players and coaching staff delayed by an accident on the A1 at Biggleswade, this result was a triumph for the Cents’ fighting spirit.
Both sides traded tries for most of the game but Cents’ more-youthful line-up won through in the end.
With the end of the game in sight, St Albans led 26-24 and they managed to pull away against the tiring Knights thanks to converted scores from Sam Bucknall and Sam Allen in the last 10 minutes.
St Albans will play reigning cup holders Bedford Tigers on July 8 after they beat Brentwood Eels in the other semi-final.
The final will be played at Hemel Stags’ Pennine Way.
