Orkney U16s 35 Stornoway U16s 7
On Saturday the under 16 squad travelled to Invergordon to play Stornoway , in recognition of the travel difficulties facing both clubs the SRU allowed the game to be classed as a double header meaning that double points would be awarded.
The game kicked off in ideal conditions being dry with only a slight breeze. In the opening exchanges Stornoway showed that this was going to be a competitive contest as they had some large forwards and pacey backs.
The deadlock was eventually broken when after a demonstration of the swift handling Adrian Askew has been coaching at the Riding Centre on Monday nights Ryan Mooney broke down the left to score near the corner. The tight angle did not deter Connor Hancock who slotted the conversion with a well struck kick giving a seven point lead.
