Hughenden, Glasgow - Saturday 28th October 2017
HILLHEAD / JORDANHILL 31, ORKNEY 25
Both sides started off slowly, for Orkney it was straight from bus to pitch so it took 15 minutes for Orkney get in the game.
Both sides exchanged penalty kicks with Adam Watt plus Cameron Gray scored his 1st try of the season, converted by Adam Watt.
Orkney controlled the game well and kept to their new structure which is now starting to become second nature to the players. They turned at half time still in the game.
After the break Hillhead/Jordanhill started strongly and scored a couple of tries in the 3rd 1/4 of the match which caught Orkney out and put them on the back foot.
On minute 65 Hillhead/Jordanhill had blown their gasket and Orkney took hold of the game scoring 2 tries in the last quarter by Scott & Craig Rendall and both converted by Adam Watt.
Orkney squandered 2 potential tries due to small errors but there were more positives to take away from the match than negatives.
So now this coming Saturday's match at home on the centre pitch at the Picky against Haddington is more than ever a must win game for Orkney RFC.
Training this week is Tues at the Club on grass & at KGS on 3G both starting at 6:00pm.
