Kirkcaldy U18 41 v Edinburgh BATS U18 17
This was a chance for the Colts to play against new opposition from Edinburgh in a recently arranged friendly due to the withdrawal of two teams from the Champions League.
The BATS are based primarily around Broughton, Edinburgh Accies and Trinity. As a result of a several call offs with injuries and infections the home team had 16 players to pick from although Marcus Salt came along to lend his support from the touchline.
The match was played on the first pitch allowing the backs much greater freedom than usual and it didn't take long for Ted Truby to score the first score wide out on the right hand toucline.
Thereafter further scores from Callum Parsons, after good lead up work by Fraser Young, Jamie Ferguson and Ewan Povey brought the half tie score to 22-0.
Much of the same was expected in the second half but the scores were more evenly matched mainly due to an improved performance from the BATS and poor discipline from the home team which incurred the wrath of the coaches. Jack Sinclair, who had been tackling hard all game, then got himself a yellow card for a late tackle though the referee was probably getting frustrated by the penalty count by this stage.
Ewan Povey completed his hat-trick and Steven Milne crossed near the end. Jamie Ferguson's kicking was somewhat erratic at times but did manage three conversions. There was a general feeling of despondency at the end of the game mainly due to the way the second half had developed but it should be pointed out this was still a victory by some margin-it's certainly been a learning process for the team in the last few weeks.
Team from;S.Harvey, T.Truby, R.Bonner(capt), J.Ferguson, E.Povey, C.Parsons, D.Anderson, L.Bonthrone, C.Hollingworth, C.McLeod, F.Young, Jack Pow, S.Milne ,C.Hunter, J.Sinclair, James Pow.
