Match Report V Grangemouth
Alloa go down fighting
Grangemouth’s dominance in the scrum and line out held the key to this local derby. Secure first phase ball allowed the Grangemouth half-backs to dictate much of the play as well as unleashing some of their powerful forwards into Alloa’s backline and the inevitable gaps in defence eventually came. Alloa had started well and competed well in the loose play with a brace of Stevie Skelton penalties pushing the home side 6-0 ahead in the first quarter. Grangemouth struck back with a try through their forwards and then scored a second touchdown after an Alloa clearance kick was charged down. Skelton’s third penalty brought Alloa back briefly within striking range however two further Grangemouth tries either side of the break brought about a bonus point and effectively killed the match, The visitors added two further tries before full time to run out emphatic winners.
