Girl’s rugby


The girl’s rugby team headed to Kilmarnock Rugby club on Sunday 28th January to compete in a tournament. They firstly did some training along side the other teams then played some competitive games. The first game was against the girls from Kilmarnock Rugby Club and even though they put up a fierce fight unfortunately they closely lost. The second game was against Monkton Girls team who happily called themselves the “Monkey’s”. The girls played much better and some spectacular skills were shown with some incredible tackles. The score was finally a brilliant 20-10 to Carrick. The Final game was once more against the “Monkey’s” and unfortunately even after some brilliant playing they lost 15-10. The girls played extremely well with the odd injury but still carried on and our star player was Sarah Shearer. The next tournament is on March 3rd at Monkton Girls Rugby club and the training sessions are on Monday’s from 3.30-4.30 up at PE.
