The home team wanted more, Taylor sprinting off, with Stevenson in support. They couldn't make it, and neither could Armstrong, Climo, Smith or Henry, thanks to some stellar defensive efforts by Currie.
It was a difficult afternoon for the visitors from Balerno, as they struggled with injuries, but they never looked down and out. Winger Mathew Hooks would have been over for a try were it not for a brilliant tackle by Climo.
Moments later and an excellent cross-field kick was caught by Currie's Cameron Gray and he claimed his try, with Forbes converting. 53-10.
The whistle went for full-time before Currie could set off for another assault on the Ayr try-line. An entertaining afternoon turned into a fun night as players and fans enjoyed the Ladies' Day after party in the marquee and celebrated a great start to the season.
Final score: Ayr 53 Currie 10.
