  • 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.

  • Carrick Slither to Defeat

    Lenzie is not an easy place to go and win especially if it is wet and so it proved to be. On a wet and windy day at Lenzie Carrick, full of Christmas spirit, gift wrapped a match which should have been won and donated it to the home side.

U15's Whitecraigs vs Carrick

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
