P3 vs Kilmarnock (home)
P3 enjoy local derby
Cumnock Micros P3 team played host to Kilmarnock on a sunny Sunday morning.
With a depleted squad arriving from our East Ayrshire neighbours due to a last minute fixture our boys were able to bolster their defences and add some quick thinking attacking to their already impressive ability. A special thank you to Thomas, Euan and Alfie for supplying the sufficient level of support to our opponents and also the fierce opposition to our boys.
Our young Cougars performed very well throughout the first match against 3 of our quick thinking players and 4 Kilmarnock players. With a team performance more fitting that of a much more experienced side, our players showed that regardless of the shirt worn or the opposition faced they are able to perform to the highest of standards.
A special mention for our newest addition to the squad should be made for Kyran who joined us in his first match today. Kyran showed great enthusiasm and commitment to his new team mates with fantastic runs and support for his fellow Cougars.
With a broad spectrum of tries from multiple players as is the Cumnock way the boys really did enforce the attacking play with great defending from all on the field. Even against our own team mates in Kilmarnock mode for the day. Jake really did show that the best form of defence is attack and picked up 2 interceptions to put them over the try line adding to the 3 tries he had already scored.
Final score: Cumnock 7-2 Kilmarnock
Team: Thomas, Alfie, Ewan, Rudi, Kyran, Stuart, Jake, Adam, Aaron & Ross
