Glasgow remain undefeated after narrow victory over East Kilbride

The first match of the weekend at Oriam Scotland’s National Performance Centre was Edinburgh v Tryst. Player-coach Alan Govan was missing for the Tryst but they still had plenty of experience within the team. The first half was competitive but Edinburgh built up a good lead by half-time and led 16-9 with their line player, Alexander Dietz, causing a lot of problems for the Tryst with Piatek leading the way for Tryst.  In the second half Tryst managed to remain goal for goal throughout but Dietz continued to cause problems.  The final score was 34-26 to Edinburgh.  Top scorer for Edinburgh was Dietz with 15 goals and Piatek for Tryst with 11 goals.

The second match on Saturday was the much anticipated clash between Glasgow and EK82.  Both teams were unbeaten this season.  in the first ten minutes of the match EK82 made a very quick start.  They were putting pressure on Glasgow and punishing their mistakes quickly on the break.  The score after 10 minutes was 8-1 to East Kilbride.  Glasgow slowly regained their composure and worked their way back in the match.  Even when Szulc received a two minute suspension after 13 minutes they managed to pull 2 goals back.  The halftime score was 19-16 to EK82.  In the second half Glasgow man marked Jack Lees who had been most dangerous player for EK82 in the first half.  This made the match much more even.  After this EK82 found it more difficult to score against a strong Glasgow defence.  Towards the end of the match Glasgow maintained their scoring rate but in the last five minutes EK82 struggled.  Glasgow ran out winners 36-34.  Top scorer for EK82 was Mowatt with 10 goals Zarraga leading the way for Glasgow with 13 goals.  There is still plenty to play for in the league but Glasgow are looking strong.
