Colts B Team Opening Match at Loretto

On Wednesday the 13th of September, the Colts B team travelled to Loretto for their first rugby match of the season. Nerves, hopes and excitement levels were at an all-time high as the team warmed up for the match. We started the first half well only letting a few tries in and managing to get a few of our own while we were at it. Unfortunately towards the end of the first half, Loretto sneaked a few extra tries in to help them to a healthy lead at half time. In the second half we managed to crawl back the margin, but sadly not enough with Loretto scoring to end the game at 16-7. The stars of today’s match were Dougal J, Rory M and Sandy N who all tackled, passed and maintained position with ease whilst scoring a few tries for themselves. I look forward to the rest of the season and to see the team grow over the term. (Mr Summers)
