2nd Xv Match Report v Allan Glens Sat 24th Mar 2012

When Killie ran in three tries in 12 minutes things looked very ominous for Glen’s with a potential whitewash in the offing. However, captain for the day Gordon Pirret, who is off to sunnier climes at the end of the season, managed to rally his team and make a very good challenge for the points.

Killie opened the scoring after only five minutes when Brown touched down after a forward drive. McWhirter added the extra points.

Another two tries in quick succession by the home side one by Wright and another by Lauder gave Killie the basis for their win.

Glen’s seemed to settle and just before the break, Kirk made a excellent break to send MacKay in at the corner making a half time score of 17 - 5.

On the restart Killie took the initiative again and Wilson slipped through the visitors defence to score. McWhirter converted. Not to be outdone Glen’s Macauley latched on to a loose ball near the home line and made the ten meters to the line.

Killie’s No 4, Lees, then barged over from a ruck on the visitors line with McWhirter again adding the extra points. Glen’s had the last say, however, when Stalker made an almost identical score with Pirret converting.

Kilmarnock need 2 points from their last three games to secure the title.
