Dazzlers at Cumnock
On a day more suited to Cricket and sun bathing a depleted 3rds made the journey to Ayrshire to take on last years bogey team Cumnock. With the memory of a poor game last year still hurting the dazzlers kicked off and went on the attack and produced some good driving rucks but this was to come to nothing as Cumnock slowed the game to a pace they were comfortable with. This frustated the boys and mistackes began to become a problem. However from quick ball Shanky fed Dave Stewart who put a superb miss pass to lynchy who carved through the Cumnock defence to open the scoring. Davie converted and this looked to be the start of the free scoring game we were expecting alas it was not be as the home side continued to frustrate and slow ball at every chance. Cumnock were rewarded with a penalty which brought the score to 3 - 7. As the 3s began to get back into the game they were dealt a major blow when scrum half Shanky pulled up injured a missed penalty on half time meant that instead of extending the lead it was a nervy start to the 2nd half.
The introduction of Davie Irvine and Darren Moon gave fresh legs and pace with Davie darting over for the 2nd score Stewart converted, Again concerted pressure brought frustration and indisciplne only brought Cumnock back into the game. The 3rd try came after a series of drives with Davie Stewart darting over under the post however he missed the easy conversion.
With the game petering out and heat building the ref blew for full time and a win for the Dazzlers however the mood in the dressing room felt more like a defeat hopfully the boys will pick themselves up for the last game of the season away to Cambuslang next week.
1 more game big big effort is required and we will close out the season on a high.
