On a glorious day for Rugby Allan Gens were happy to take the league points in a very tight and well contested game. Lenzie switched off for the first quarter of the game and found themselves 17 - 0 down through tries by Kirk and Johnston and successful kicks by Thomson.
Lenzie came into the game much to the relief and delight of the large home support and scored 2 well taken tries through Duncan Woods with captain Scouller making significant ground every time he was on the ball. Lenzie were now dominating the scrum and possession however Glens backs were lively and continued to pose a threat to the Lenzie line.
Following the break a Thomson penalty stretched Glens lead to 20 - 12 and Lenzie responded to this by taking the game to the Allan Glens line with Sutherland, Slade and Ally Woods looking dangerous.
Lenzie were unlucky when the referee was unsighted which allowed a well worked Glens counter attack with McKinstray scoring in the corner following excellent support play to increase the lead to 25 - 12 in Allan Glens favour.
Lenzie continued to apply pressure and Knight was stopped just short of the line by good defensive play by Glens. McWilliams and Baldman were probing Glen's defence and Lenzie's pressure were rewarded through a third try for Duncan Woods which was converted to close the gap to 25 - 19. Glens held out for the last few minutes of the game to record their victory.
Whilst Lenzie will be pleased with their second half performance Glens deserved their win as they were more consistent over the full period.
Man of the match was Lenzie's hat trick hero Duncan Woods.
Next game is on Saturday 18th April at Viewfield via Helensburgh with a 3pm ko
