Match Report from: Coach Ross Johnstone
Annan U14 welcomed their visitors Stewartry in there 1st competitive game of the season.
It was played as 3 x 20 mins sessions. The home team ran out clear winners in the end scoring 14 tries and 7 conversions to a reply of 6 Stewartry tries and 3 conversions.
Some great passing out of the contact, breakaways and counter rucking led to Annan taking the 1st session 3 tries to 1.
Changes for the home team led to a 5 tries to 4 score in Annan’s favour in the 2nd session.
After some injuries the majority of the final session was played 10 a side for which the home teams fitness shone well taking the final session 6 tries to 1.
Lots of positives and plenty to work on but very proud and happy coaches.
