LASSWADE travelled a few miles down the road to play a derby game against Dalkeith, and put in a great performance.
Dalkeith started with the advantage of going down the hill, kicking deep into Lasswade’s half, and looking dangerous.
The referee had his hands full as he struggled to get the two front rows to set and bind properly resulting in a lot of scrums. Dalkeith were eventually awarded a try. Good Lasswade defending denied the home side of more than the one try.
Cami McVicker took a great catch from a Dalkeith kick and stormed up the left wing, before Cameron Bierman fed Sam Greens to go over and score the visitors’ first points, bringing the scores even.
In the second half, the Hawthornden boys came out fighting, realising they could break through the Dalkeith defence.
