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.
