Win at Stirling

Stirling County 3rd XV  7  v  Carnoustie  17  –  21/10/17

 

Carnoustie travelled to Stirling to play the County 3rd team.  On a very wet pitch Stirling kicked off with Carnoustie gaining a penalty to put the home side under pressure.

Carnoustie maintained good attacking position but Stirling solid defence prevailed until after half an hour Kevin Franco powered over for a try following a scrum. Andrew Burgess added the conversion.

Carnoustie maintained an attacking position allowing Andrew Burgess to convert a penalty.  With an excellent individual break Andrew Burgess crossed for the try and also kicked the conversion.

In the second half Stirling dominated the ball and field position with Carnoustie making only sporadic visits to the home twenty two. Again sound defence held them out until the last minute when Stirling touched down and converted.  The referee blew for full time.
