Carrick Girls V
Canadian Mayfield Mavericks
On Thursday 15th March
the Carrick girl’s team hosted and played the Mayfield Maverick’s
who came all the way from Canada. The Mavericks were doing a tour of
Scotland and had already played 6 teams before they came to Carrick
and some of these included Stirling and Glasgow University. They
arrived around 3 o’clock and the two teams got to know each other
before heading off to get changed. The game kicked of at 4 o’clock
with a huge group of supporters to cheer the girls on. The Mavericks
mainly dominated the first half even though both teams displayed
some impressive tackling. The second half kicked off with Carrick
feeling extremely fired up and this showed as they impressively held
the Maverick’s for 17 minutes before they were able to score a try.
During the games several substitutions had to be made due to some
lethal tackles by both teams.
In the end the Mayfield Mavericks were victorious and the girls
could get on to the serious
of the after party. The community wing had been decked out with food
for both teams to enjoy and there was then a presentation of Carrick
rugby hats for the Canadian girls and the Carrick girls received
water bottles and badges. The Mayfield Mavericks presented the rugby
coaches Miss Johnstone and Mr Brown with their training shirts also
the dame of the Game Elizabeth McJannet was presented with a shirt.
The girls then headed of to the disco, which was being held in the
dinning hall. Everyone who attended had a great time and the only
serious injury was from Heather Smith who went to hospital with a
suspected broken nose but turned out to have a broken wrist instead.
We hope to keep in contact with the team and find out how they got
on with the other games. Well done to everyone who played and thanks
to everyone who came along and showed their support.
