u18 v Trinity Academy (Nov 15)

Young Reds Win Out in Exciting Match at Mains Park 

Linlithgow Academy u18  24 – 19  Trinity Academy u18

Saturday 21 November 2015

LA_TA_1An exciting competitive match was played out on Mains Park on Saturday morning in crisp wintery conditions between Linlithgow Academy 1st XV and their counterparts from Trinity Academy.

LA_TA_2Both sides were evenly matched and both tried to play open expansive rugby.  The result was in the balance throughout and at 19 all, with five minutes to go, it looked as if a draw was on the cards.  However after some good driving play by the home forwards, the young Reds managed to squeeze over for what turned out to be the decisive try.

Trinity did not give up and the game ended with Linlithgow desperately defending their own goal line until one mistake too many prevented the visitors from levelling the scores.
