STIRLING COUNTY 3rd XV 24 v CARNOUSTIE 38
Carnoustie travelled to Stirling in search of league points. Carnoustie got the game underway quickly gaining a penalty which was tapped only to knock on. They then pushed forward to pressure the home defence, missing a penalty kick to the posts but in their next push to the line Craig Addison burst through an attempted tackle to touch down with Michael Jamieson converting. Carnoustie continued in the ascendancy but could only add a penalty to the score sheet. The home side picked up the pace and gained a penalty which was tapped and played through the hands to touch down wide out. The conversion was missed. Carnoustie pressed forward on half time and from a scrum five drove to the line allowing Owen Hughes to touch down and Michael Jamieson to convert. The whistle was immediately blown for half time.
Stirling restarted with Carnoustie fielding and working their way up field with ball being swiftly transferred to winger Jordan Donnachie to touch down wide out. Conversion was missed. Stirling recovered to score two quick tries with the conversions added to be back in contention. Carnoustie kept their heads up and added two penalty kicks by Michael Jamieson to the score. From a line out in midfield Michael Jamieson split the defence to score and convert with a strong line break. Michael Jamieson added a late penalty but Stirling had the last word scoring with a strong drive from a scrum but with no conversion.
