Tough game in Mahon

The boys had a tough morning of rugby on Saturday against Douglas/Carrigaline. The weather was kind it was cold but dry and it was a bright morning. Douglas/Carrigaline opened the score sheet with a converted try followed by an unconverted try. Despite their repeated attempts the Under 18’s lads weren’t able to get across the finish line. Half time score was Douglas/Carrigaline 12 – 0 Old Christians

The second half got under way and finally we burst onto the score sheet with a brilliantly worked try by Dave O’Connell off the back of a scrum. Douglas/Carrigaline attempted to get back scoring it was unsuccessful and Rob they gathered the ball inside his own 22 area and ran the length of the pitch to score between the posts. The game seemed in the bag at that stage. A few mistakes gave Douglas/Carrigaline the ball and they made the most of it scoring in the corner another unconverted, moments later they sealed their victory with a kick to touch once they checked time was up. Full time score Douglas/Carrigaline 17 – 14 Old Christians.

Lots to work on going forward. Game tonight v CBC Ko 7.30pm and Cork Con Saturday in Rathcooney 12.30
