Dunbar unbeaten and on full points after round 2

Dunbar win in a high scoring match against Berwick at Hallhill.

Dunbar kicked off in near perfect conditions at home to Berwick. Dunbar made the one change from the previous week when Sandy Thomson was replaced by Robbie Brown with Thomson dropping to the bench as a precaution. Donnellan and McArthur replaced Salkeld and Lunam on the bench. Dunbar got off to a flyer for the second week in a row when John Peebles sprinted clear to score with Charlton converting. A Blair Mills penalty flew wide after eight minutes as Dunbar tried to turn the screw. Berwick were slowly coming into the match and a purple patch saw the Dunbar line breached. The conversion levelled the score at seven points each after sixteen minutes. Dunbar came back again after good work by Patrizio and Peters. The ball went out to brother Greig Patrizio who broke the line and gave the scoring pass to Connor Forlow. Charlton missed the conversion. Both sides traded penalty kicks before Berwick took the initiative again when their stand off broke through two attempted tackles to score. The conversion put Berwick ahead for the first time in the match. They say a team is at their most vulnerable after they score and Berwick were like this from the restart. Over alloborated play saw Greig Pattrizio steal the ball and fed the onrushing John Peebles who rushed to within a couple of metres. The ball came back inside to Jamie Peters who crashed over for the score. Charlton added the extra points from the touch line before kicking a penalty minutes later. On thirty seven minutes Kyle Donnellan replaced Ewan Patrizio. Dunbar were then backed up in their twenty two but a great run by Andy Taylor took the player to the Berwick five metre line before he was chopped down. Robbie Brown was on hand to take the pop pass and dive over to score. Charlton converted again from the touch line to give his side a 32 - 17 lead. Dunbar had secured a try bonus point for the second game in a row as the referee blew for half time.
Dunbar should have scored straight after the break when a good run by Moffat set up the back line and with the try line begging the ball was knocked on. Charlton missed with a penalty attempt on the 46th minute. A minute later Dunbar went further ahead when a neat chip by Charlton was gathered by Gary Peebles who went to within a metre. Andy Taylor was quickly in support to pass to John Peebles on the wing for his second try. Aaron Mclellan replaced Forlow on 49 minutes. On 56 minites Richie Gallagher took a team yellow card for too many penalties which forced Dunbar to put on young prop, McArthur and sacrifice Donnellan. A try saving tackle by Peters was not enough to stop Berwick scoring immediately after. The conversion was successful as Berwick reduced the deficit. A further try followed minutes later. Dunbar made several changes as Gallagher returned to the fray. On 70 minutes captain Blair Mills extended the lead with a well taken penalty. Dunbar were under pressure but a good clearance kick by Mills put Dunbar in an attacking position. Dunbar through Patrizzio and Donnellan set up good ball for Mills who broke through the defence to score on 75 minutes. Charlton,s conversion was tipped by a Berwick player but was not enough to stop the ball going through the uprights. On 77 minutes McArthur replaced Cairns with time running out Berwick threw the kitchen sink at dunbar but the ball was knocked free by an Andy Taylor tackle. Jamie Peters retrieved the ball before feeding Mills who ran in from just outside his 22. Charlton missed the kick and the referee blew for full time. Dunbar after all their pre season worries have got off to a fantastic start and will now look forward to travelling the short distance to meet local rivals Ross High on Saturday.
