KENILWORTH Ladies progressed through to the second round of the Ladies Cup after a convincing 53-8 home win over Cannock Ladies.

Within the first five minutes a superb run by lock Ada Ajoku led to centre Gemma Gilleece crossing for the first try which was converted by Sarah Munday, and moments later an unconverted try made it 12-0 to the hosts.

Gilleece scored her second try of the match, which was converted by Munday before the visitors got their first points on the board thanks to a successful penalty.

But normal service was resumed when Spence broke away and set up winger Pheobe May who scored in the corner for an unconverted try. There was also time for Mary Sugrue to cross before the break to give Kenilworth a 29-3 lead at half-time.

After the break the hosts did not get complacent and Munday scored her first try of the match, which she converted, for 36-3.

Cannock then scored their first try of the match but this sparked Kenilworth back into life and fly half Yoli Sempere saw a gap and squeezed through to score under the posts with Munday adding the extras to increase the lead to 43-8.

Sempere went over again soon after and with three minutes left on the clock experienced flanker McComiskey crossed to round-off an impressive performance for Leamington.
