S1s Great Start to Season – Win by 5 tries to 2
The S1 had their first game on the season against a very good Hutcheson Grammar School.
In the first 10 minutes Linlithgow powerful pack of Cameron, Johnny, Ryan, Jack, Lewis and Fraser put immense pressure on the opposition players. This led to us dominating the first half with tries from Johnny and Fraser.
Hutchesons had a five minute spell where they tried a number of times to go the last ten yards to score but were repulsed every time by a tremendous Linlithgow defence.
The second half started as we had left off with a bulldozing run by Jack to set up Caiden followed by Jack scoring himself with a great team effort. The Linlithgow backs were able to match their very skilful and fast opposition backs with great tackling and defensive work from Euan, Jake, Logan, Ruan, Caiden and Daniel.
As both teams tired in the last 10 minutes, Hutchesons scored a great passing try in their backs, but that spurred on Linlithgow to do the same with Scrum Half Oogs giving us our 5th try of the game. A consolation try from Hutchesons made it 5-2 to Linlithgow and a great start to the S1 season. Lots still to work on, but great team effort all round.
