Match report, Premiership 4: Accies v Heriot's

Accis 26-28 Heriot's

Heriot’s started the game well and went into a lead after 13 minutes with a converted try. Then four minutes Iain Chisholm responded with a penalty to make the score 3-7.

The game was going from end to end and though Heriot’s kicked a penalty, try machine, Sam Pecqueur, scored under the posts after another mazy run. Chisholm converted to level the scores at 10-10 with four minutes left in the half.

With two minutes of injury time gone, Lewis Niven was shown the yellow card for some 'technical offence' and the Nails took immediate advantage, scoring in the corner. Half time: 10-15.

A man down we started the second half at some pace and Heriot’s did not touch the ball for the best part of 15 minutes. We missed a penalty after four minutes, which was corrected five minutes later (13-15) and with Niven back and the ball still in our hands the pack drove Jamie Winks over for his first try for the Club, leaving us in the lead for the first time: 18-15.

21 minutes into the half Chisholm extended our lead with another penalty, though over the following period Heriot’s drew level again with two penalties: 21-21.

We fought back well and after a good break from Ruairidh Young, Ronan Seydak was on hand to just dot the ball on the line in the very corner. With the missed conversion we were ahead by five, with one minute and injury time left.

Heriot’s moved play into our 22 and after a number of penalties, scrums and rolling mauls they managed to dive over in the corner - and with the conversion scraped a win: 26-28.

A tough result for the team who had given everything in this excellent game, which didn't have a professional or EDP in sight.
