Mixed Results

 

There are times when you have to just hold your hands up and congratulate the opposition for a job well done. That was certainly the case on Saturday as Ayr systematically out played us for the first 25 minutes. To give a team a 27 point start  made it mission impossible and whilst there was little between the teams for the remaining 60 minutes our error count was way too high. The most consistent part of our form this year is the very fact we are not. After good wins against Heriots and Gala it would be foolish to hide our disappointment and it must have been hard for our supporters to watch  that opening quarter. We will have to improve this week as we head away again, this time to Raeburn place and a resurgent Accies side. A win could draw us nearer the battle for 3rd place as Clubs jocky for position in the lead up to Christmas. But with any club capable of beating the other on any given week I've no doubt there will be a few twists and turns to come in the big games that lie ahead .

The Storm had an excellent away win despite arriving before the ground was even open so I think our transport manager needs his jotters - oh that will be me then! The Wasps returned to winning ways (81 - 19) and the Ladies suffered defeat at the hands of Murrayfield Wands.

We had a few boys in the Edinburgh A squad for this Monday so we wish them well and we also congratulate Lisa Thomson for being included in the U20 Scottish Womans training squad.
