Queensferry 12

Moray House 30

Queensferry failed to finish the season with back-to-back wins after losing to Moray House on Saturday.

The House had no front row as has been the case all season and Queensferry had to go unopposed at scrum time.

The game started positively for Queensferry and they scored the first try through McBrearty on four minutes after a driving maul from the line out.

The conversion appeared to be over but one touch judge said yes and the other no so the referee did not allow it.

The House came back with a penalty before some sustained pressure by Queensferry.

They dropped the ball twice over the try line, fumbled another couple of good try scoring opportunities and turned down four kicks at goal within the 22, opting to scrum which came to nothing.

The home side could not believe they were only 5-3 up at half time.

The second half was a total reversal of form.

Moray House got the first try of the half after a clever cross-field kick from their stand off Parker.

It was duly caught by the unmarked winger who scored in the corner.

Queensferry regrouped and immediately put pressure on the visiting defence which resulted in Sam O’Brien powering over from close range.

After this Moray House took control of preceeedings and their backs showed some great skill in attack with accuracy and discipline resulting in three further tries to win the game comfortably.

Next week Queensferry play the legendary Pigbarians in our family fun day.
