• Punch Drunk Lenzie

    It was almost two years ago to the day and on a similar perfect day for running rugby that Lenzie destroyed a very inexperienced young Carrick side. That year Lenzie was promoted to West 1 but Carrick’s young team recovered from that poor start and managed to finish a creditable fifth.

After a good win last week on the road at Dumfries, Carrick visited Whitecraigs with high hopes. This was the first meeting between the 2 clubs and we did not know what type of game to expect. From the initial observations "they grow them big in Whitecraigs!!".

 

This was by far the largest opposition Carrick have faced in sometime and in particular the Whitecraigs inside Centre was head, shoulders and approx 3 stone heavier than any of the Carrick players. This was to prove the deciding factor in the first half with the aforementioned Centre crashing over the line for 3 of the 4 tries scored by Whitecraigs.

Half Time score Whitecraigs 26 : Carrick 0

However after a half time team talk (rant from a frustrated Coach) and a few changes in personnel, the team spirit came back together for Carrick with some renewed vigour and greater passion put into the tackle and also attack play. This resulted in an excellent try by Carrick's Man of the Match - Conner Barr, who outpaced the defence and scored in the corner. Liam Wyllie then slotted a difficult conversion to make the score 26:7.
Despite several other forging attacks and a dubious disallowed try the score never altered till the final whistle.

Although disappointed by the loss, a lot can be taken from the spirit shown to win the second half.

With a weekend off next week for the Scotland International v New Zealand, the U15s can look forward to bouncing back with consecutive home games against Cartha & Waysiders.

Final Score: Whitecraigs 26 : 7 Carrick
