U10A Rugby team edge a thriller!

An exciting game in the mud and rain!

After winning away in Musselburgh two weeks earlier, the Under 10A rugby team hosted Loretto in a return fixture on Wednesday.

Both sets of players got stuck in right from the start making strong attacks with effective offloads in the tackles. Loretto scored first but the Cargilfield boys soon evened it up. Tackling was good on both sides, but even so the tries continued to come and at half time, the score was even at 4 tries apiece. In the second half, with the cold and wet playing a part, fumbles resulted in more frequent change of possession but the boys continued to battle it out. Alexander, who was man-of-the-match made tackle after tackle, which contributed hugely to a narrow 7-6 victory by the Cargilfield team.

Well done to all the boys for ending the season with such a committed performance.
