Saturday 26 August 2017
In a highly creditable opening series of matches, Linlithgow Academy split their four matches with Hutchesons Grammar School, with the S3s winning 31-17 in Glasgow, whilst the u16s won 8-7 at Mains Park. Both the joint S1/S2 team and the u18 teams put in good performances in their matches, however Hutchesons were too strong.

The u16s had the edge over their opponents for most of the match, but couldn’t put them away. A first half penalty from Gregor and a second half try from Jamie had taken them into an 8-0 lead, however a fine converted try by Hutchesons pulled the Reds lead back to a single point. The young Reds rallied and closed the match out on the Hutcheson line for a fine 8-7 win.
