MATCH REPORT FROM BILLY HENDERSON
Last Wednesday we had a home game v Dumfries. This was played 10 v 10 a side.
Weather was terrible and to allow us to play a midweek game the U14-U16 Girls and Boys were kind enough to move over to the small training area. Many thanks to them.
Our referee travelled down from Glasgow to help us out and was quite fair in her decisions. The plan was to play 3 x 20 minute sessions, however conditions dictated that we played only 2.
Annan started off pounding up the pitch towards the try line with Niamh eventually scoring. Dumfries hit back with 2 tries of their own before Niamh crashed over for another try. Dumfries scored another 2 to make it 4 tries to 2 to the Park Farm club.
Annan hit back and Lexi scored the best try of the night with a long arching run, showing her pace to score under the posts. Next up Ellie and Erin who were in for a for a score each, both after long hard yards by Sarah.
3 of the Annan tries were converted to 2 of the Dumfries tries.
Final Score: Annan 31 Dumfries 24
A pleasing night for the Annan girls of Kara, Erin, Ayda, Drew, Hannah, Niamh, Tess, Sarah, Ellie and Lexi.
Probably the girl who impressed me the most on the night was Kara. She hasn’t played or trained much lately but she did make a few good breaks and won a few rucks.
Many thanks to both teams for getting stuck in as well as the supporters, helpers in the grubber and the linesmen.
See you all next time
