Musselburgh 26

Jed-Forest 55

JED'S push for promotion and the National One title continued on Saturday at Musselburgh.

Musselburgh are always capable of an upset, but the visitors commanded much of the play following an encouraging opening quarter by the hosts.

Sean Goodfellow and Robbie Yourston at half back dictated the early rhythm.

And it wasn't long before Yourtson put in winger Robbie Shirra-Gibb to score.

But back came Burgh and Willie Fleming forced himself over from close range.

Danny Owenson made it 7-5 with the conversion.

Jed were being stretched as the home team pressed.

Craig Owenson scored another try with brother Danny converting for a 14-5 lead.

Jed responded well with Darren Gillespie racing in for an unconverted try.

Further pressure tested Musselburgh's defence before Gillespie darted in for his second score of the match.

Yourston made it 14-17 with the conversion.

There was still time before the interval for Goodfellow to jink his way over in the corner for the bonus-point fourth try.

Monty Mitchell went over early in the second half.

And Yourston converted for a14-29 lead.

Just when Burgh were pressing for a way back into the game Lewis Young rounded off a breakaway try to stretch the lead.

And just two minutes later Gillespie went over again.

Yourston converted both to make it 14-43.

Sandy Watt and Ben Hibbard did add consolation scores for Musselburgh.

But Jed weren't finished and in the closing stages Rory Marshall went over to bring up the half century.

And Shirra-Gibb completed the scoring in injury time.
