Thriving talents of youth
It was another busy week for the youth teams at Livingston with the youngsters taking on Glasgow Hawks across various age group.
The under-18s were the stars of the show for Livingston, though, with a stunning 13-10 victory.
They found themselves 5-0 down early doors before a brilliant try from Stewart Terris levelled the game up.
However, Glasgow got their noses back in front just before the break with their second try.
Yet again Livi refused to be beaten and were able to get another try to tie the game as Reece McFarland was able to touch down in the corner.
Despite being reduced to 14 men, Livingston had plenty of possession and territory and were finally given their just rewards when they were awarded a penalty with five minutes left on the clock.
Dan Robinson duly stepped up and slotted home what would prove to be the winning points.
A delighted coach, Stuart Harvey, praised his team afterwards, saying: “We coped well with going down to 14 men and the boys really rallied. It was a great team performance.
Unfortunately there was a heavy defeat for the under-16s as they lost 63-20 against a very talented outfit. Ewan Steel scored two tries with Harry Forehand and Angus Paterson also crossing the line.
The under-13 side played a terrific closely fought contest and came away with a narrow 24-23 victory.
Jude Edwards was the star of the show for Livi as he pierced the Hawks defence four times with Matthew Hill and Ross Morrison also scoring tries.
Ben Philp (four) and Jamie Wilson (two) added conversions.
