Strathie sharks S1/2 continue excellent run of results
On Sunday 21st Oct Strathmore Sharks S1/2 team played hosts to Montrose. After a slow start Strathie came into their own from a scrum, Logan Doig made a good break with sound support play which enabled Eoin Chalmers to score. Another try was scored by Logan Doig from a scrum with excellent offloading and support running, Josh Hampton converting. Montrose began to exert pressure but could not score, Strathie made a good break from their own line only to give away a penalty beyond half way, again good breaks and support play by the team lead to a try for Cameron Henderson. Montrose made another break but sound tackling thwarted their move. Eoin made a fine catch and run from a restart but was well tackled by the Montrose defence, the game became a little scrappy and Strathie were losing the ball in the breakdown. Montrose made some fine breaks and only sound tackling by Logan saved a try scoring chance. A break lead to a scrum from a line out and Josh scored on 28mins. Montrose finally got some points on the board when their no10 from a penalty scored a try on the 31 min mark with a great individual run but failed to convert.
The second half started slowly but from a maul Strathie secured the ball with Eoin breaking to score and Josh added the conversion. The next score was from a brilliant interception break by Finlay and a sublime pass allowed Josh to score his second try but he missed the conversion. Some sloppy play with a lack of concentration started to creep into Strathie’s plays which lead to a try for Montrose. From the restart Logan Doig scored within minutes with Callum converting. Strathie then scored from their 22 when Josh made a break who passed it to Tim to score on 51 mins. The game was played end to end with chances for both sides, a mistake in defence let Montrose score on 59 mins. From the kick off Tim scored another try for Strathie. With seconds remaining a touch line kick was chased by Cameron and an offload to Callum who received the ball but with the try line in his sights he tripped over and the final whistle was called. Overall a great game played by both teams with some excellent running and offloading play, well done to all Strathie players, a great effort and it continues their unbeaten start to the season, A special mention to Logan Doig, Eoin Chalmers and David Edmeades.
