Selkirk A 21, Kelso A 7

A team gain sweet revenge

SELKIRK took on a strong Kelso side, looking to turn around their only defeat in the league at the start of the season. Both teams started really well and it took Selkirk 20 minutes to get on the scoreboard, Craig Macdougall scoring under the posts after some excellent build-up work from the whole team. The try was converted by Rory Banks,
Two minutes later Scott McDonald scored in the corner after a Kelso back made a mess of trying to clear their line. The try was also converted by Banks for a 14-0 half-time lead.
Shortly after the break, Macdougall (Man of the Match) scored another try, cutting through the Kelso back line from halfway, selling a couple of dummy passes, and finishing off under the posts for an easy conversion from Banks.
It was not until the last minute that the Selkirk line was crossed by Kelso for a consolation converted try.
Best for Selkirk were Peter Forrest and Macdougall, but again it was a real team performance and keeps them on top of the league table.
