After several unsuccessful breaks by Edinburgh centres Cat MacDonald and Celia Hawthorn prop Roz Murphy won the ball in an Edinburgh line out and powered down the pitch to score the first try of the match taking the score to 5-0.

A great chip and chase from centre Celia Hawthorn was cut short by Kirkcaldy’s fullback and persistent pressure from Kirkcaldy caused Edinburgh to touch down over their try line and a quick penalty by Kirkcaldy equalised the score to 5-5.

After kicking off for the second half Kirkcaldy’s strength showed as they pushed over the try line to score their second try. 5-10. A second break down the wing from Edinburgh prop Roz Murphy and a successful conversion by Maddy Grant took the score to 12-10.

After play in the middle of the pitch Kirkcaldy’s fly half saw a gap and made a break down the field scoring the final try of the match and an easy conversion took the final score to 12-17.
