Maroon magic at ’Muir

Boroughmuir 29

Gala 42

PREMIER DIVISION ONE

A SUNNY but breezy afternoon at Meggetland in front of a vocal crowd saw Gala collect their fourth win of the season.

After a first half peppered with to-ing and fro-ing, penalties, handling errors and strange refereeing decisions, the teams were all square at 15-15 at half-time. Bryce Turner and Chris Auld scored a try apiece, with Lee Millar slotting a conversion and a penalty.

A strong finish by the visitors resulted in a convincing victory, however, and a lofty third place to boot.

Further tries from Opeta Palepoi (2) and Alan Emond were all converted by Millar, who also added two penalties to complete the scoring.

Gala: B. Turner; S. Law, C. Auld, C. Borthwick, C. Robertson; L. Millar, Geo. Graham; L. Bertram, L. Roden, E. McQuillin, C. Weir, O. Palepoi, D. Marshall, Gary Graham, E. Dods. Subs: P. Stewart, S. Cairns, C. Keddie, A. McLean, A. Emond.
