P7 at Stew Mel Tournament - Sunday 6th October 2013:
This Sunday saw the P7's filling in at the Stewart Melville Lions Tournament down at Inverleith. This was never going to be easy, with teams from North Berwick, Currie, Stirling County, Accies/BATS and of course Stew Mel's all taking part. Due to a late call off the two pool format was changed to a 'round-robin' - time to dig in.....
First match saw us up against North Berwick. Some good play saw us win the game 4 - 0.
Second match was against Currie, which was a lot tighter. A good passing moved allowed us to sneak a last minute try to win 2 - 1.
Third match drew us against the first of the two Stew Mel's sides. Hard work from both sides saw Stew Mel's win by 2 tries to 1, a close game though.
With no rest break we went into our fourth match against Stew Mel's second side. Again a hard fought match between both sides but two good moves from Stew Mel's saw them win 2 - 0.
Again with no rest we went into our fifth match against Stirling County. A very even match saw the score at 1 - 1, but with a final interception try from County, they win 2 - 1.
After a short break we play our last game against Accies/BATS. Again, another very tight game, but by this time near to 60 minutes of play time was getting to the players. Although playing well Accies hold on to win 2 - 1.
This was never going to be an easy tournament and the fact that the players were always there or there about's, shows we're in a great place for the future! Lots to work on but all very encouraging signs. Well done to all the players for a great performance. Thanks also to StewMel Lions for the invite to a great tournament....
