Good win for Glenzie's second outing
Glenzie S1/2 27
Irvine RFC 5
A trip to the coast for the 2nd outing of the Glenzie team. Glenzie were straight into attack from the start and very quickly opened their account. A big effort in the tackle saw Callum rip the ball from the Irvine forward and play a superb pass to Nicky for him to score. Irvine rallied themselves and, despite an almost constant assault, their defence stood strong and denied Glenzie any more scoring. Half time 5-0 to Glenzie. Into the second half and Glenzie started well with good handling, clever interpassing and support play leaving Nicky to finally ghost past the Irvine defense for his 2nd. Glenzie then added to their tally when Alfie showed quick reactions at a scrum to pick up the loose ball and sprint over the line. Glenzie didn't have it all their own way and a lack of concentration and poor tackling allowed Irvine to reach the line and score under the posts, despite a spectacular tap tackle by Camy D. Spurred into action Glenzie scored again from the restart. Good positioning by Peter allowed him to catch the ball easily and head up the wing on a powerful solo run. Glenzie continued to turn the screw on their opponents with Jude producing a perfect offload in contact which found Nicky, releasing him to run in his third try of the day. With the gusting wind making conversions difficult the full time score was 27-5 to Glenzie.
