Dumfries Saints Ladies team travelled up to, Greenock Wanderers RFC, at the weekend in Round 2 of the Aspiring League draw. Lead by captain Annabelle, armed with a whole squad of Saints available to play the fixtures.
A spokesperson for the squad said “First, we faced Greenock Wanderers Blue, a team we faced in Round 1 and secured a 30-5 win over. Today was no different as the ladies showed no fear in attack from the starting whistle and defended with determination until the very end. The final score was 40-0 to Saints, try scorers were:
* Derri 🏉
* Annabelle 🏉🏉
* Tasha 🏉🏉
* Deni 🏉🏉🏉
Next, we faced Paisley in our first ever meet.
The game was close from the get go, with Saints failing behind for a short period of time. In true Saints fighting spirit we bounced back from behind to secure a well deserved draw, with the score 15-15 on the final whistle. Try scorers were:
* Derri 🏉
* Deni 🏉🏉
Onto the final game of the day, and what a game it was! We faced Greenock Wanderers Red, confidence was high after our earlier meet with their teammates. Saints dominated possession for most of the game with our opposition struggling to get through our defence or breakdown our attack. Saints tackles were a force to be reckoned with, carrying from the forwards was strong and speed from within the whole team, especially the backs, was rapid. The final score was 50-0 to Saints with the try scorers being:
* Abby T 🏉
* Annabelle 🏉🏉🏉
* Kady 🏉🏉
* Abby R 🏉
* Tasha 🏉
* Derri 🏉
* Lindsay 🏉
Our player of the tournament was Bryony, who put in an incredible shift playing 10, assisting with most of today’s tries!
Not only did Bryony come away with her first player of the tournament, but also her first appearance as a Saints! Congratulations to Amanda and Kara, who also dawned a Saints strip in their first appearances too!
Next week we travel to Glasgow University in Round 3, where we hope to keep the winning streak rolling! “
