Share this article

Mackie U16s resumed their league campaign on Sunday looking to extend their unbeaten run to three games out of three, and did not disappoint their travelling support, producing an emphatic win to stay two points clear at the top of the Caledonia North Div 1 league.

It did not take long for Mackie to open their account with a fine worked move being rounded off by Mackie’s captain, Euan Kirkwood. Further tries were added before half time by Morrison, New and Leitch.

Grammar never gave up and were rewarded for their efforts with a try of their own after a fine individual effort saw the Grammar player break through three attempted tackles.

Further Mackie tries were added by Jackson (2), Morrison and New. Leitch landed five conversions to bring the final score to 50 points to 7.

Mackie’s man of the match award was presented to Jamie Berrisford who led from the front in the loose and gave a tackling masterclass to his fellow team mates and opposition alike.
