Carrick U16s bounce back at home
Despite being awarded the points the previous week, the Carrick side were clearly aware they had to improve on their game performance from the previous week and as such raced off to a 19 point lead after just 10 minutes with tries from Aiden Strachan and Conner Barr.
Lucky escape for League points
Carrick started their West 2 South League campaign with a visit to Irvine. In a stuffy game Carrick found themselves 14-0 down at half time with two tries that came from either "sloppy defence" or unforced errors.
Carrick s1s played well winning 12 tries to 3 with several different try scorers. The boys were slow off the mark and made a few mistakes when the game was in the early stages.
On Saturday our S2 side played Lenzie Academy. Last season we lost both matches to Lenzie so we knew it was going to be a challenging game. We started well playing as a team passing the ball out to the wings and making good yards.
It was a poor start to the day. A mix up with the bus company meant that the journey to Oban began three quarters of an hour late. The journey was long and the bus arrived on time but last week’s team for some reason did not arrive in Oban.
Saturday saw the U16 kick off their season against Kelvinside Academy.
The boys from Maybole started well with a quick score from Kyle Riggans, followed by another from captain Zander Howie.
Saturday 7th September
Carrick S1, S2/3 and U16 will all be away at Lenzie Academy. Meet at Surestart for 8.00am and returning at 12.45. Match fee is £3 and all pupils should wear school uniform.
