The driving rain made for a scrappy derby clash with the deluge never stopping from kick-off.
Stanley's best chance to fell to George Bowerman who scuffed an effort in front of goal from Murphy's ball into the box.
There was little to choose between the sides but then, as the break approached, Shrimps midfielder Kenyon made a late challenge on Murphy and referee Adcock had no hesitation to show him a red card.
The game restarted after half-time but the ball was holding up in surface water and the referee spoke to both benches before bringing proceedings to an early end.
