Selkirk Stormers 36, Preston Lodge 2nds 22
SECOND HALF FIGHTBACK GIVES SELKIRK
STORMERS FIRST VICTORY OF THE SEASON
VICTORY certainly tasted sweet for Selkirk Stormers at Philiphaugh on Saturday, with the team turning in a brilliant second half performance to defeat Preston Lodge 2nds and pick up their first RBS Reserve League East 1 points of the campaign.
"The boys deservedly won the game after hitting
a purple patch after the interval," said player/coach Donny Mackenzie at the final whistle. "Everything
just seemed to click into place, and with the forwards firing on all cylinders the backs were able to get enough
quality possession to show what they're capable of."
Special mention goes to newcomer Colin Heatlie and old stager Duncan Lawson for their good work in the closing 10 minutes, while brothers Gary and Alistair Lyall played a half each to fit in with child-minding arrangements. Dedication above and beyond the call of duty!
