North Berwick v Dunbar

Dunbar go down to local rivals in an entertaining match at Recreation Park

Dunbar travelled to North Berwick for this local Derby which has seen the home side dominate the fixture for the last couple of seasons. Dunbar with an unchanged team for the first time in what seems a millennium looked to try and stop the rot of defeats.
North Berwick turned down several kickable penalties as they looked to score tries from the line out with Sanderson towering above the Dunbar line. Dunbar managed to hold out against the constant barrage of North Berwick attacks. Dunbar were forced into an early change when Spowart replaced McLellan. Again a kickable penalty went into the corner but again the visitors defence was good. With 16 minutes gone the solid Dunbar defence gave away a soft try when Liam West scored out wide. Dunbar were now getting into their stride and were unlucky after 21 minutes but a knock on in the tackle stopped a good attack. With 23 minutes gone the home side scored a cracking try. Good play by the forwards saw the ball go wide before Fairgrieve came into the line at an angle to score at the posts. Liam West added the extra points for a home lead of twelve points. Dunbar went on the attack and again were denied a scoring opportunity with another handling mistake. Ewan Patrizio looked to have scored on 33 minutes when he seemed to get to the ball first but the referee was in a poor position and awarded a 5m scrum. Dunbar had the stronger scrum and Patrizio got his try when he picked up and drove over on 34 minutes with Charlton converting. With half time approaching Dunbar did extremely well to hold out for the whistle as North Berwick threw everything at them. Ben Cairns replaced Conlin McArthur at the break to give the youngster a breather.
Dunbar were hit with a sucker punch just after the break when Fair grieve scored his second try of the day out wide. On 48 minutes Charlton struck over a penalty to reduce the deficit to a converted score. Dunbar should have pressed forward but as they have done several times this season conceded a poor try when Gallagher touched down. West converted to put the home side 24-10 clear. With 57 minutes played North Berwick had Gallagher yellow carded for slapping the ball away. This should have been the launch of a Dunbar come back but they too had a player yellow carded when Chris Bryce walked for a stamping offence. With 64 minutes played North Berwick scored again out wide to secure the bonus point and almost certainly the win. Jamie Peters then saw yellow on 70 minutes for an alleged high tackle. North Berwick took advantage of the position to score again. North Berwick should have scored again at the death but for a magnificent cover tackle by Rory Wood as the referee blew for time. Richie Gallacher was the pick of the Dunbar pack as he worked hard all day and in the back division Peters was his usual solid in defence. Dunbar continue on their travels when they go to Linlithgow hoping for a good result.
