U16s remain unbeaten after good win over Killie
forward but a good tackle by Lochy allowed Fraser Forsyth to sprint down the line, evading all tackles, to score under the posts.
The Stewartry forwards were dominating the broken play and did not have many problems at the scrum even though the Kilmarnock scrum appeared bigger and heavier.
Patrick passed to Peter from a scrum and a well-timed pass allowed Fraser Gibson to make one of his trademark, bullocking runs through several tackles and touch down for a score near the side line.
A good move by the backs allowed Lochy to sprint up the touchline to score.
Near the middle of second half, Glen came off to be replaced by Finn and Alexander came on to replace Rory.
Kilmarnock ventured into the Stewartry half with good forward play but a strong tackle by Paddy and Ryan turned over the ball allowing Patrick to find Fraser Forsyth who showed his class by ghosting past two defenders and scoring under the posts.
At the last play, Kilmarnock had the put in and PaddyTraynor made a strike against the head allowing Pacey to motor down the wing. He was high tackled and from the resulting penalty Ryan Cochrane got the ball and drove powerfully over the line to score the ninth and final try with PeterYoung converting five times.
There were good displays by all players with special mention to the front five who looked very solid and comfortable against a heavier pack.
The back row did all the dirty work, Fraser and Lochy marshalled the backs and Archie and Peter are forming a solid partnership and creating a link between forwards and backs with ease.
The forwards rucking is getting better each week, the backs are starting to realise that quick passes create more space and strong straight running ties in defenders.
They are still on occasions making life hard by not using a team mate in space but overall a very satisfying performance and every player should take credit.
