CRIEFF and Strathearn RFC kept up the pressure on league leaders Falkirk 2's with a comprehensive 57-17 win over Waid at Braidhaugh last weekend.

With only three games left and the Blue and Golds hard on the heels of league leaders Falkirk 2's, it was imperative that the local side win all remaining games.

Waid were the visitors to Braidhaugh and it was only a couple of weeks since the local side had travelled to Anstruther and come away with the points.

So Waid were looking for a better result than the first game but it was the Blue and Golds who struck first with a penalty from Ryan Flett.

Waid responded and piled on the pressure to Crieff and Strathearns try line.

This resulted in a score and conversion for the Fifers. This was the visitors only lead in the match as the Blue and Golds went up a gear and took the lead with some great scores.

One try in particular was the pick of the day when Richard Leckie chipped over the Waid defensive line and the ball was collected by the Waid full back. Chip stripped the ball to offload to Rory Hart who scored between the sticks.

Crieff and Strathearn were well in control in this game however coach Cameron Kennedy still came on to point his team in the right direction.

With a strong bench available to the coach, the game was a foregone conclusion even from the start of the second half.

Special mention went to Marcus Fenton as man of the match and to Jim Leishman who allegedly played his last home game for the club, although club skipper Stuart Guntley may try and convince the experienced player to stay on for another campaign.

In the end Crieff and Strathearn won 57-17 to secure another bonus point win.

This Saturday the team are away to Dundee Medics, which will be another tough game versus the students.

However, if the team win this game it will set up a final league decider on the 23rd against Falkirk 2xv.
