U16 v Glasgow Academy (Sep 18)

Huge Cup Win for U16s

Linlithgow Acad  20 – 14  Glasgow Acad

Wednesday 26 September

This was a cracking cup tie played in an excellent spirit between two very good teams. Playing with a tremendous intensity the Young Reds drove their opponents back at every opportunity, never letting them settle in the game. A last minute converted try by the visitors made the scoreline look closer than the game actually was, as the Young Reds ran in 4 tries, two in each half.

Congratulations to all of you, especially the boys who turned out from the S3 squad to help us. Unfortunately we couldn’t play all our subs tonight but hopefully it was a great experience being part of our first Scottish Cup tie.

Chris went over on 5 minutes and it stayed 5-0 until almost half time before Gregor scored. Unfortunately our defence eventually broke on 7 minutes into the second half and they scored from a number of short, tight phases.

Ewan went over on 17 minutes followed by Gregor getting his second try. They scrambled a consolation try right at the end from a handling error from us in mid field and they managed a kick through and the bounce beat our retreat.

Excellent effort from all concerned. Thanks for everyone’s support tonight.
