Wee Reds P6s Round Off Great Second Half to Season
Sunday 24th May
The P6 Wee Reds hosted Kinross and Livingston at Mains Park for the end of season fixture on Sunday.
It was decided early that we would play both teams twice to give as many of the squad as much game time as we could and to make the trip worth while for the visiting teams.
First up was Kinross, who from experience from earlier in the season are a very good and well organised team. Once again we proved to be slow starters falling behind to two early tries but we battled back in the second half to make it honours even at the final whistle with a 2-2 draw.
Wee Reds 2 – 2 Kinross
Next up were our local rivals from Livingston, who we were determined to beat as they were responsible of inflicting our only loss to date since Christmas. The team was fired up and came out strong scoring some early tries with some great phases of passing play. We maintained our dominance throughout the second half with a great defensive display supporting our attacking opportunities and finished worthy winners with a comfortable 7-0 victory.
Wee Reds 7 – 0 Livingston
After a well deserved rest, it was time for the second instalment of our games against Kinross. Resting some of our big performers from the second match, we struggled to hold a very organised and physically strong attacking side and found ourselves 3-0 down by half time. From the off in the second half we showed real character and fightback and an early score got us the foothold we needed to regain our confidence, and a competitive and determined display saw the game ending in a draw which on reflection was a fair result for both teams.
Wee Reds 4 – 4 Kinross
Finally, it was the last game of the P6 season. Again against Livingston, who were as determined as ever to get even following their earlier comprehensive defeat. Once again all of the squad rose to the occasion as we too were determined to finish the season on a high. After a strongly contested match which saw a terrific all round performance with some great attacking and support play, the Wee Reds again were triumphant for their effort with a solid 6-2 victory, much to the delight of the coaches and the watching parents. What a superb way to end the season!!!
Wee Reds 6 – 2 Livingston
With a successful conclusion to the season all players, coaches and parents celebrated their hard work and well deserved success. Lets hope we can take this forward into the P7 season!!!!
For the record, P6 results since Christmas – Lost 1, Drawn 4, Won 30!!!!
A fantastic second half to the season. WELL DONE to all players involved!!
