Glens are left dejected
GLENROTHES WERE thwarted in their bid for a place at the national finals day when they succumbed 28-13 against St Boswells in the RBS Bowl semi final.
Glens went into the clash against St Boswells with high hopes of booking a place at Broadwood Stadium later this month.
Tries by Cammy Goodall and Willie Maxwell, plus a penalty from Shaun Gray, left the Fifers 17-13 adrift at half time, and still very much in contention. However, the visitors raised the pace in the second half to emerge as comfortable winners, leaving the Fifers to focus on league duties.
Meanwhile there was a disappointing end to the RBS Caledonia Division 1 campaign for Strathmore, when the Inchmacoble men went down 13-11 at home to a MackieA cademy side that was desperate for a win to move out of the bottom two in the league.
Harris A cademy eased to a 57-7 win in their final league fixture of the campaign againstA lloa.
The result has tightened the Dundee side’s grip on second spot, extending the advantage over third-placed Glenrothes to 10 points, although the Fifers still have three matches to play.
Crieff and Strathearn missed out on the chance to clinch third place in Division 3 (Midlands), losing 41-5 away to Kirkcaldy.
