Match Report by Kevin Mitchell



The Strathie Sharks S1/2's welcomed Carnoustie to Inchmacoble on Sunday Morning, this game was always going to a tough encounter and the large support were not let down.

The game was played over 3 x 15 mins periods, Full Back Elliott Batt making his return from Injury ran in two powerful tries, centre Dean Farquharson coasting through for his first try and Murray Mitchell adding two conversions saw the first period finish with the Sharks 11- 7 ahead after an end to end start to the game.

The second period was mainly all Carnoustie as their big pack started to get the upper hand in the scrums and the tight play scoring three converted tries. The Sharks fought back and following a great break Kieran O'Brien sneaked in at the corner, Mitchell added the tricky conversion, but The Sharks were behind 14 - 19 going into the final third.

Carnoustie's early try at the start of the final period was there last threat at the try line as the Sharks hit some top form, better at the break down, better at the tackle and in general a lot more determined. This saw the Sharks create space for the powerfull running of Dean Farquharson to romp in with three cracking tries, his third was one of the best tries of the season so far, the powerful centre broke the line then weaved his way to the try line with some excellent evasive running. The Sharks were also awarded a penalty try when Farquharson had his ears pinned back heading for the white wash when he was pulled down from behind by a high tackle, a good call by the ref to give the penalty try, Mitchell added three conversions to see the Sharks through to a 29 - 22 victory.

A lot of good performances again this week with Baldie, Wilson, Docherty, Voice and Ashworth along with the point scorers leading the way.

Team, Wright, Edmeades, Maguire, Lumgair, Baldie, Mitchell, Ashworth, Voice (Capt), Brunton, Wilson, Farquharson, Docherty, Batt, O'Brien, Murray, Wallace.
