Dunbar v Penicuik

Dunbar hang on to the win against a stuffy Penicuik side.

Dunbar had Blair Mills and Jamie Peters on the bench for this crunch East 1 match. The home side were without Sandy Thomson, Dylan Moffat and John Peebles. Dunbar kicked off on a driech day where the ball would be greasy and handling would be difficult. Dunbar were hit with an early injury to winger McLellan with Blair Mills coming on, meaning a switch in positions along the back division. With 7 minutes on the clock the visitor's took the lead when veteran winger David Zavaroni outstripped the home defence to touch down in the corner. Dunbar then went further behind when the Penicuik forwards drove over to score. Neither try was converted but Dunbar were 10-0 down. Dunbar coach Mark Coull made another early change with Jamie Peters replaced Jordan Lister. This meant another major shift in positions with Greig Patrizio moving into the pack. Within a minute the change brought quick results with Peters bursting over at the posts. Charlton converted to bring Dunbar to within three. Chris Bryce then replaced Matty Pickles at hooker. With half time closing in Dunbar had two penalty chances but both Blair Mills kicks went wide.
Dunbar stand-off Charlton reduced the gap to three minutes into the second half as the home side started to dominate. Lister returned to the field in place of Forlow. With 55 minutes gone Charlton levelled the scores at 13-13 and everything was to play for. Dunbar then went ahead for the first time when Ewan Patrizio burst through from near half time with Charlton converting. The home side seemed to take their foot off the pedal allowing Penicuik back into the match. One good attack was thwarted by Peters as he turned over the ball allowing his team mates to clear. The pressure was relentless from Penicuik but Dunbar defended magnificently. The pressure eventually told with a try in the corner. The conversion to level things came up short. With minutes remaining Dunbar pushed forward and were awarded a penalty which Charlton converted. Dunbar defended the last couple of minutes to see out the match and a much needed victory.
This will almost secure Dunbar another season in East 1. The inclusion of experienced players Mills, Bryce and Peters calmed things down and saw Dunbar over the winning line.
Dunbar will host their Irish friends from Skerries next Friday at Hallhill. Around 60 players, members and Officials will be travelling and the kick off is scheduled for 2:30pm.
