Berwick v Dunbar

Dunbar lose out in a keenly fought match.

Dunbar travelled over the Border where they met Berwick, looking for that elusive win that would surely secure their East 1 place for next season. Several changes were forced due to several players unavailable. Jordan Lister started his first senior match having come off the bench against Leith. The weather was ideal, although the pitch was a little on the soft side.
It was Berwick who took the game to Dunbar and dominated the early exchanges. Berwick scored a try from almost nothing after 3 minutes after a kick and chase. The conversion was added and Berwick had an early 7-0 lead. Berwick were then awarded several penalties which were kicked into the corner which allowed Dunbar to clear. On 17 minutes a neat kick up field by Thomson was touched by a home player as it went out. Dunbar were quick up and took the line out immediately but the referee pulled it back. With no players in the line out Dunbar were entitled to play the ball and the referee should have allowed play to continue with a try scoring opportunity available.
Berwick then went further ahead on 22 minutes when Dunbar had hands in the ruck. Dunbar missed a penalty to reduce the deficit on 28 minutes. Dunbar kept up the pressure and had several penalty advantages, two of which were kicked diagonally to the winger who was unlucky on both occasions. Dunbar kept pushing on and were rewarded with a try of their own when Charlton missed several players to reach Forlow who had the easiest of chances to touch down. Dunbar then had a kickable penalty but decided to tap and go. Ewan Patrizio drove to within one metre of the line before a knock on in the back division halted play and the referee blew for half time.
Dunbar made two changes at the break with Ally Brown and Neill Spowart replacing Lister and Pickles. Dunbar had a penalty to level things on 52 minutes but the kick went wide. Lister returned to action replacing the injured Conor Forlow. Then there was the turning point in the match on 58 minutes when the Berwick winger was tackled near the try line and the linesman flagged but was over ruled by a referee who was not up with play. Berwick then extended their lead with another penalty minutes later. Dillon Beveridge, Matty Pickles and Conlin McArthur then replaced Wood, McLellan and Thomson.
With 65 minutes on the clock Berwick hit the sucker blow as Dunbar threatened to score. Good play by Dunbar then saw the ball go loose and was picked up by the home winger who sprinted the length of the field to score. On 74 minutes Berwick had a player yellow carded as Dunbar pressed the home line. That pressure continued and the home side were then reduced to thirteen. Dunbar continued to dominate and were rewarded when Captain Jamie Peters smashed his way over with Charlton converting.
This was a much better performance by Dunbar who played more like a team but luck was against them in a match there for the taking.
