U11A Rugby v Cargilfield

Wednesday 1st March

Under 11 A 11 tries – 6 tries

 
Another Wednesday, meant it was another match day for the U11s. This time we had the fortune of playing at home, and it was an opportunity to give some of the younger members of the u11 squad a chance to play against a strong Cargilfield team.

The game started fast with both teams moving the ball well, and trying to utilise the full pitch, which is something that the St. Marys boys have been working on during sessions prior. Eventually the tries came for both teams, or in Cargilfield’s case their winger, who was very fast and managed to run on the outside of our boys 5 times!! St. Marys were never behind in the game, and always responded well if we conceded. The tries came from Fredrick with 4 tries, Thomas Elliot with 3, Caelan with 2, Ollie Little and Geordie Maclay with a try apiece. These tries wouldn’t have come about if it wasn’t for the big carries from Mac Rutherford and Ollie Earnshaw, as well as the dazzling feet of Stuart Mitchell and Mitchell Clark, aka the Mitchell Brothers!

However, like most sports rugby has two sides to it and it wasn’t all attack. The defensive effort this week was massive! Cargilfield had big ball carriers but the boys met them head on, with Ed smashing boys well above his weight category, with this resulting in numerous turnovers!
 
Well done boys!
