Picky: 23rd February 2013
Final Score – Orkney 27 Gordonstoun 7
Gordonstoun were still struggling to get into the game and the Orkney team found good field position after the kick off with a good kick downfield and chase from Cammy Gray and Ciaran Drever who proved a solid defence all day. Continuous pick and drives from Munson, Fraser, Hay & Pirie was soon tiring the Gordonstoun defence and gaps were starting to appear. After continued pressure Taylor Pirie broke through to score with a fine individual try showing powerful running. (10 - 0).
Gordonstoun came back into the game and the next few plays before and after half time were nervous times for both teams. The Orkney scrum was under pressure and Gordonstoun used this to good effect with strong forward play resulting in a try which added spice to the rest of the game. 15-7).
Well done to Gordonstoun who never gave up and rallied to the end. Also thanks to Derek Robb for Refereeing.
