Young Reds U16s Hold On for Hard Fought Win

Lasswade Academy U16  12 – 14  Linlithgow Academy U16

Saturday 06 October 2018

The Young Reds scored first in this match after 6 minutes with a try from Gregor which he converted himself. It was then pretty equal for the next 20 minutes or so, until Lasswade managed to score on 24 minutes and again on 27 minutes but only converted one of them. 12-7 at half time to them.

The second half started well and Callum E made a great run down the wing to score a try which Gregor converted to give the Young Reds a slender 14-12 lead.

That’s the way the score stayed despite some massive pressure from Lasswade, with the Young Reds defending their tryline with great courage and strength.

Coach’s remarks – “We gave away a few too many penalties and they missed winning the game twice by missing penalties. Well played boys!”
