Win number 3
Glenzie continued their successful run.
The sunny weather on Sunday again suited Glenzie’s style of play and they ran out convincing winners against Cumbernauld. First half tries from Haddock, Auld(2), Watson and Derby saw the home side in a comfortable 31-0 lead at half time. Into the second half and Glenzie started to make heavy weather of the game with uncharacteristic sloppy passing starting to creep into their game It was a full fifteen minutes before they got back on track with another score from Haddock. In a second half peppered with scrums Glenzie had difficulty getting into their rhythm but once they were back in the zone tries came from Cruickshanks(2), Don and Huddy to end the tie 64-0.
The early part of the second half aside, Glenzie’s handling was generally impressive and lineouts worked well with several stolen. Overall it was a solid team performance which won the day. Credit should go to Cumbernauld who, despite being under the cosh for most of the game, battled for every ball to the end. Some powerful running from their backs and some good set piece moves kept the Glenzie defence on their toes with strong, accurate tackling keeping the visitors at bay.
Next match for Glenzie is away to Uddingston/Glasgow East on Sunday 28th Sept. Kick off 2pm.
