CARNOUSTIE 22 v Dundee University Medic’s 27

Carnoustie entertained Dundee University Medic’s for the first game between the clubs.  Dundee kicked off with Carnoustie immediately penalised, with barely a minute gone the visitors took the lead.  Carnoustie struggled to get into the game and it was no surprise when the visitors extended their lead with an unconverted try.  Carnoustie eventually made good ground forward and from a 5 meter scrum Owen Hughes sniped round the scrum to touch down but with no conversion.  Carnoustie maintained the pressure and from a penalty tied the scores a half time.

Carnoustie got the second half underway. The early play was littered with penalties before Carnoustie set up a series of drives to the line with Danny Findlay touching down and Michael Jamieson converting. Carnoustie again pressed forward only to lose the ball allowing The Medics to break all of 40 meters to touch down and convert.  Carnoustie were guilty of loose carries resulting in The Medics again breaking from their own goal line to touch down wide out resulting in the conversion being missed.  Again Carnoustie applied heavy pressure on the visitor’s line with the same result the ball turned over and run the full length of the field for a converted try.  Carnoustie had the final say in the game driving a scrum to the line for Jack Forster to touch down and Michael Jamieson to convert.
