  • Carrick hold on to win

    It was a grey windless day at Maybole last Saturday and it was a grey performance from the home outfit. If the Carrick faithful were looking for a similar purple patch performance produced at Garnock, in the previous encounter, they were sadly disappointed.

U15's Dumfries vs Carrick

Carrick U15s travelled to Dumfries on Sunday for their first West 2 League game after the initial Cup Round Competition games. The combined West 2 League now features a total of 16 teams which means that you will only play each team once and being drawn away to Dumfries would be sure to prove a challenging start.

Carrick started well putting pressure on the Dumfries back line which resulted in a knock on 10 metres from the Dumfries line. From the Carrick scrum, scrum half Nathan White quickly picked up the ball from the tail of the scrum to dart over the home sides line. The try was then converted from a "sweet strike" from stand off Liam Wyllie, to give the away side a perfect start. Dumfries then used there forwards to batter forward with some useful drives. Eventually this pressure paid off with an unconverted Dumfries try . Tackles from both sides were fierce and fully committed with tempers at times reaching boiling point. Into the second half, Centre Conner Barr made a lovely break to out pace the Dumfries defence to score in try in the corner. At half time Carrick were well deserved of the 12-5 lead. However in the second half again Dumfries fought back to score a pick and drive try leaving the scores 12-10 to the away side.

In a very tense and passionate last 10 minutes, attack and defence was fully committed by both sides, however with the award of a penalty at the death, Liam Wyllie was able to boot the ball out of play for a 12-10 win for Carrick. Highly entertaining and committed game - and the Carrick Coach was delighted by the Team spirit and desire to win shown by his team.
