Blacks record first win

The Galloway News - - READER TRAVEL -

knocked on by full back John Fing­land, a first for him in more than two sea­sons.

The sec­ond try did come when Muir gath­ered on half way com­bin­ing with Austin and Mil­li­gan to put Picken in at the posts, Mosey again con­ver­ing to make it 14-10, a lead Ste­wartry held to the in­ter­val.

A de­ter­mined start saw Cum­nock pick up where they left off with a third try out left while their scrum half lay in­jured.

Broll, Austin and Mosey soon took play into the vis­i­tors’ 22 where Mosey kicked a penalty to make it 17-15

An­other penalty saw Tay­lor dive over from the line out but the try was chalked off, the ref­eree de­cid­ing there had been a pre­vi­ous knock on.

Un­de­terred, Ste­wartry stuck to their task, keep­ing up the pres­sure on Cum­nock and the bonus point try came when Austin, Fing­land and Wil­son opened up the de­fence for Mat­tie Tay­lor to touch down. Mosey con­verted.

Ste­wartry were in the driv­ing seat but yet an­other touch­down, this time by Un­der­wo­ord, was dis­al­lowed be­fore the on fire Tay­lor fin­ished off some great lead up play by Austin and Wil­son with his sec­ond try of the af­ter­noon, Mosey con­vert­ing.

It was then Wil­son’s turn to jink through the Cum­nock ranks and feed hard work­ing scrum half Picken who scored at the posts. Mosey’s con­ver­sion took the score to 38-15.

Wil­son, back in Blacks colours af­ter play­ing a num­ber of sea­sons at a higher level, got his re­ward when cen­tre David Kerr found space to give him an easy run for the sixth try which Mosey con­verted.

Cum­nock bat­tled hard through­out the game and their ef­forts were re­warded with fourth bonus point try in in­jury time to make it 45-20.

The five points was a boost for the Blacks who face a trip this week­end to sev­enth placed Cam­bus­lang who beat Cum­nock the pre­vi­ous week 55-19 at Cum­nock.
