Loch Lomond U14s bagged their first win of the season with a hard-fought comeback victory against Kilmarnock at the Dillichip.

In their third league outing, the Lomond youngsters suffered a nightmare start with the visitors getting off to a flyer thanks to three quick tries.

Fortunately for the Lomond team, they are used to battling and refused to let their heads drop despite the hefty deficit.

Momentum then swung in an impressive 20 minute period in the second-half with strong defensive work and quick offloads freeing up space to give the Lomond speedsters ample chance to find the gaps. And they duly obliged as they fought their way back into it.

The accurate and expansive play had clearly been developed on the training ground as Lomond began to take control of the match.

Killie managed to restore their lead but Lomond dug deep to fight back once again and secure a fantastic 26-24 victory.

The U14s now have a well-earned rest weekend while the U15s return to action on Sunday against Ardrossan at the Dillichip.

Loch Lomond minis, meanwhile, made the journey to Cumnock to take on the hosts and Glasgow Hutchesons’ Aloysians.

The P1-P3 kids played three matches against GHA and Cumnock with a number of new players introduced alongside the more experienced kids as they won one and lost two of their games.

Lomond’s P4 and P5s were short on numbers but Cumnock kindly supplied a few players to make a team. 

The P6s, for it being only their second game of the season, coped exceptionally well and moved the ball about quickly, overcoming a strong Cumnock side in the final minutes before losing out to GHA in their second match of the day.

A depleted P7 team then showed their fighting spirit to see off a well-drilled GHA side 7-3 before losing out 6-3 in the final match against Cumnock.
