The Under 10 boys braved the elements to take on Loretto in a 6-a-side match. Many of the boys had been used to the Under-11 rules and had to adapt quickly to the regulation changes. Having done so, they built up some useful attacks, offloading in the tackles and passing the ball out wide. This led to a number of tries in the first half, giving them a three try at the break.
Loretto came back strongly in the second half, fighting their way back into the match with some pace-filled attacks. We had chances of our own but a couple of spilled catches lost us possession and Loretto seized upon the opportunities to score two quick tries. Both teams began to score alternately from that point and the score stayed close until the end of the match with Cargilfield winning by just a couple of tries.
Well done to all the boys for their tackling and offloading.
