Glens romp home against Annan


GLENS expected to win this encounter, but not by this margin.

Allan Glen’s............... 58

Annan...................... 9

A second half which saw the home side run riot gave them the much-needed five points to promote them from the bottom of the table.

Annan opened the scoring after five minutes with a penalty by stand-off McCann.

It wasn’t long, however, before Glens started the ball rolling and scored two good tries – one by Lock Johnston and one by Frame from an off-load by Stich.

Annan forced another penalty, but this was quickly nullified by a well-taken drop goal by Auld and just before the break Gray touched down again from an off-load by Stich – making a half-time score of 18-6.

After the restart a much fitter looking home side had virtually everything their own way. The visitors could only manage a penalty while Glens ran in six tries.

First Auld slipped through the Annan defence to touch down between the posts then Morrell charged in from 25 metres – leaving several defenders in his wake.

Everything clicked for Glens and four tries in the last 10 minutes summed up the difference between the two sides at this stage.

A break away try by McKeown, followed by a touch down by Gray from a beautifully-weighted cross kick by Auld seemed to finish the scoring, but then Stich and Cameron put their names on the score sheet from well executed inter passing and off loading.

Glens are now looking forward to hosting Caithness at the Bearyards this Saturday – 3pm kick-off.
