SATURDAY UPDATE: THE 1ST XV LOSE / 2ND XV GAME OFF…AGAIN!
Alas for the 4th time out of 5 home league matches, the 2nd XV game was OFF as the opposition could not raise a team to travel to Violetbank. Attempts to get a replacement opposition were not successful. A team in the league will come down to Violetbank one day!
And the 1st XV went down to Kilmarnock
To keep things short – the 1st XV go down 26 v 15 to promotion chasing Kilmarnock.
Lurch with the take
Annan led for most of the first half thanks to a James Bigham penalty on the 10th minute but 2 quick tries on the 34th and 36th minutes meant Killie went in ahead at half time 12-3
Second half and the start was all Annan and the lads retook the lead when first, Michael Thompson scored. Then not long after Sean Haren crossed the whitewash. The try was converted by the Bigham and it was 15-12 to Annan……for about 60 seconds.
Kilmarnock quickly scored a converted try and it was 19-15 to Kilmarnock with about 25 mins to go.
Could Annan get the win?
If you read the title or first paragraph then I guess you know…
As Annan were pushing for the winning try, Kilmarnock broke away and scored. It ended 26-15
The black and amber now have a home game next week versus Strathendrick. 2pm kick off.
