Match Summary Prem11: Accies v Stirling County

Results, Saturday 17 November
1st XV 23-31 Stirling County
2nd XV 28-0 Boroughmuir 3rd XV

Accies 1st XV 23-31 Stirling County
With a very different look to our 1st XV and many players making the step-up from the 2nd XV, we got off to a slightly shaky start on Saturday. However, we worked hard to contain Stirling, defending well and managing to keep the score to 5-14 going into the break.

The half-time talk clearly re-energised the players who scored early after the break. Stirling then went down to 14 men and we capitalised with a penalty and another try, before the visitors reasserted themselves, scoring two more tries before the final whistle.

It was a spirited performance by the whole team.

2nd XV 28-0 Boroughmuir Bears (3rd XV)
Unfortunately Boroughmuir suffered some call-offs between confirming our fixture and Saturday morning, so were only able to field 12 men. We were therefore awarded a 28-0 win, but the boys were disappointed not to get a full league fixture.

Onwards & upwards!
