Green Machine lose in East Kilbride


East Kilbride 21

Oban Lorne 5

BT West Division One

OBAN Lorne travelled to Calderglen Park, East Kilbride, recently for the return leg of the first game of the season, from which EK scraped a 13-8 victory at Glencruitten. It seems to be one of those seasons for the men in green, missing an array of players due to injuries and suspensions, most notably talismanic captain Craig Wright. Ten personnel changes from the previous week’s loss at home to Allan Glen’s gave a big chance for a few individuals to give coach Corrie Louw a selection dilemma in the coming weeks.

The tone of the match was set early with both teams settling into rhythms, but it was East Kilbride who got the first score of the game after a long period of good Oban defence. The home side went off the top at the lineout and found a gap in the midfield to score just to the left of the posts and, with the conversion successful, the score was 7-0. One mistake from Oban, one try to East Kilbride.
