A great result for Glen's new head coach

4 months ago By Allan Glen's

Allan Glen's 46 - 7 Strathendrick

This was a great result for Glen's new head coach Jules Murciano a lady of some experience having coached the Scotland Women's Team
Murrayfield Wanderers Women's team and Dalziel. Welcome to the Bearyards Jules.

This game was a reality check for Strathendrick who had a very good win last week over Stewartry. Glen's forced a penalty after seven minutes and followed it up a few minutes later with Thomson finishing off an attack on the visitors wing. He duly converted his own try.
McKeown then intercepted a careless pass by Strathendrick on the halfway line and outpaced the visitors defence to touch down between the posts.
Again Thomson converted. Ten minutes later Henderson completed a good backs move to add another try for the home side. Shortly before the break Strathendrick were pressing Glen's hard but lost the ball to Glen's No8 Murrell who broke out from the attacking forwards flipped the ball to Morrison who outstripped the Strathendrick defence to score on the wing. This made a halftime score of 29 - 0.

Five minutes after the restart Strathendrick's line was again under severe pressure and from a lineout five meters from the visitors line Adams drove over to add to the home tally.
At this point, albeit a bit late, Strathendrick seemed to rally and after a period of sustained pressure on the home line Graham skipped over to open the scoring for the visitors. Whyte converted. Ekevati barged his way through for Glen's after some pressure on the visitors line and an excellent final score for Glen's came from a inter-passing move via a break by Henderson a pass to Moore and touch down by McKeown.
Strathendrick gave the home scrum a torrid time but lineout honours were shared. The big difference was between was in the backs where Glen's skills and speed stood out.
