Tri­umph on road for rugby lads

Ayrshire Post - - INTIMATIONS -

Auchin­leck’s rugby boys took Stornoway by storm after a long jour­ney.

It was an early start for the side as they trav­elled to the Outer He­brides to play The Ni­chol­son In­sti­tute in Stornoway but even the weather and 10- hour travel couldn’t dampen their spir­its.

The boys ar­rived at the school full of con­fi­dence - and it showed with a 71- 12 win, with two tries from U16 Scot­land cap Jamie Drum­mond in the open­ing 10 min­utes of the game.

This was fol­lowed by two tries for act­ing fly half Kevin Van Der Leest plus two tries from U15 player Lewis Young.

The game was played in the best of spir­its, and the Stornoway boys were a credit to their school and com­mu­nity by giv­ing their all and push­ing right to the end.

The win helped the team reach the Bowl Na­tional Semi- Fi­nal, send­ing coaches and play­ers home on a high.
