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.
The S1's showed up very excited for their first game against Kelvinside on Saturday. Kelvinside kicked off the match and for the first 10 minutes the game was very tight with some great tackling by the Carrick Boys. Kelvinside then scored some well worked tries out wide and were converted by their standoff.
Carrick under 15’s failed to show up both in terms of personal and performance on Saturday with several key players missing from our squad. After allowing Kelvinside a good start to the game the team showed glimpses of good team work and effort, however Kelvinside were well drilled and clinical in attack.
The Carrick team now have a lot to work on at training to ensure the same result doesn’t happen in the future. We will only improve through hard work on the training ground.
