Orkney did have some bright spells of possession though, with some good carrying by the front row of Connor Crawford, Murray Simpson and Simon Owen, however the home side failed to take advantage of the strong breeze in their favour.
Into the second quarter the Caithness scrum started to dominate and eventually the pressure told with their Number 8 driving over from close quarters leaving an easy conversion to take the lead 0 - 7.
The backs showed their defensive skills early on with a try saving tackle from Aleisha Womack, leaving the player vulnerable and enabling Donna Wilson to jackle and win the ball just short of Howe’s try line.
