League leaders put Endrickto thesword.

EAST KILBRIDE ......................................................................... 61 STRATHENDRICK ..................................................................... 21 Endrick travelled to championship-chasing East Kilbride on Saturday, fully expecting a hard game but were hardly prepared for the onslaught that hit them.

The home side attacked from the start and went ahead with a try after only four minutes and by the break had added three more for the bonus point.

And with all of them converted Endrick faced an uphill battle and a 28-0 deficit.

It got worse with EK added three more converted tries in 15 minutes to lead 49-0 before Endrick fought back.

Three converted tries for the Fintry side saw the gap reduce to 49-21 but there was to be no Twickenham-like miracle as EK added two more tries - one converted - to makle the final score 61-21.

On Saturday Endrick are at home to Allan Glen's who are a point behind East Kilbride with a game in hand in Tennent's West Regional League 1. Another hard game is forecast.

The 2nds were involved in a high-scoring West Reserve League 2 match at home to Uddingston 2nds.

The visitors have struggled for numbers this season and have been penalised four times for failing to fulfil a fixture. To avoid them incurring further trouble Endrick suggested that they bring as many players as were available and they could make up their numbers from Endrick's ranks.

They duly arrived at Fintry with half a team, borrowed six players and the sides played a hugely entertaining and highscoring 13-a-side game with Endrick just shading it 41-39. On Saturday the 2nds are home to Ardrossan Accies 2nds.
