FALKIRK 2nd XV 17 v CARNOUSTIE 37
In the first return match of the season Carnoustie travelled to Falkirk having won the home game.
Falkirk kicked off, Carnoustie fumbled the ball giving the home side possession but they then knocked on. Falkirk won the scrum against the head and ran the ball breaking through to touch down and convert. Carnoustie responded with a break by Jack Forster into Falkirk’s half, where a penalty was tapped and Michael Jamieson broke and when challenged found winger Michael Downie in support to touch down. The conversion was missed. Continuing on the attack Carnoustie set up a series of drives with Kieran Ritson touching down, again the conversion missed. Falkirk responded with a good break before sending the ball wide to touch down. Carnoustie were then awarded a penalty and elected for the kick but sent the ball wide. From a scrum in midfield Michael Jamieson made a clean break to touch down with no conversion. Just on half time Michael Jamieson again ran through the Falkirk defence to touch down. Half time 12 – 20.
In the second half play was less open and scoring restricted. The first try of the half from a tap penalty again saw Michael Jamieson touching down, with no conversion. From a well-placed kick to the corner Michael Jamieson chased hard to get his hands on the ball and touch down. Falkirk staged a recovery to pierce the defence to run a try over the line. In the last move on the game Mitch Whyte intercepted a loose pass and ran unchallenged to touch down with Michael Jamieson adding the conversion.
