Mi­nis com­pete well at Mof­fat

The Galloway News - - LOCAL BUSINESS WEEK -

Ste­wartry mi­nis were in ac­tion at Mof­fat Rams’tour­na­ment on Sun­day – the last of the sea­son. P4/5

In per­fect con­di­tions, the young­sters had def­i­nitely saved their best for last.

First up they faced Big­gar Black and ran out com­fort­able win­ners in a very com­plete all round per­for­mance. Next up were Dum­fries Black and, de­spite be­ing three tries to one up early on, the young Ste­wartry team con­trived to lose 4-3.

Mof­fat were the next team up and some sub­lime rugby saw the Blacks run out com­fort­able win­ners by seven tries to one. The last game of their sea­son was against a big look­ing Pee­bles White team but the young Blacks did them­selves proud with an­other com­fort­able vic­tory.

Well done to all those who played and es­pe­cially the young boys who took a step up from mi­cros rugby to P4/5 level as a taster for next sea­son. Young Jake McCub­bin and Finn Har­ris did re­ally well and fit­ted in bril­liantly with the older boys in the group and are more than ready for the step up next sea­son. P6/7

Ste­wartry started the morn­ing with a good win over a strong Big­gar Black team. The Sharks did not miss a tackle the whole game and were able to take their chances to run out 2-0 win­ners.

Ste­wartry then faced an in form Dum­fries Black team who dom­i­nated the break­down and suf­fo­cated any Ste­wartry at­tacks. The Dum­fries squad were de­served 3-0 vic­tors.

The Green­law team later got back to win­ning ways with a com­fort­able 4-1 win against the home Mof­fat team.

The fi­nal game of the sea­son was against Pee­bles White.

The game was very evenly matched with very few clear cut chances for ei­ther team. Near the end of the game Pee­bles scored and then scored against just on the fi­nal whis­tle to take the game 2-0. Well done to Pee­bles Blue on be­ing the over­all win­ners.

The coach­ing team is very proud of all the play­ers and the ef­fort they put in at Mof­fat and all sea­son.

Spe­cial men­tion to Matthew Hind who was awarded the p6/7 player of the tour­na­ment for a sec­ond year run­ning.
