Under 18’s v Kanturk
It was pretty ideal conditions under foot thanks to Shane for closing the pitch and saving it for our match. Kanturk turned up with 13 players so for the first half we played 13 v 13. The ref didn’t show up so Mattie had to don Paul’s jerseys so he could play at being a ref. The Boys also tried out the J1’s old jerseys for size and they fit pretty well.
The first half started with a try by Daniel converted by Rob followed by a try by Paul also converted. Kanturk finally got on the scoreboard with an unconverted try bringing the score to 14 – 5. Old Christians continued to run in a bevy of tries first Conor Drummy got over then Harry then Daniel again for his second of the match finally Adam scored. All but one of the tries was converted by Rob bringing the half time score 40 points to us and Kanturk to 5.
At the start of the second half instead of going on like this Kanturk conceded and we then gave them Conor Drummy, Josh and Akram. This also allowed us to play 15 v 15 closing down the extra space and giving the boys more of a challenge. At the breakdown especially with Conor Drummy on one side and Dave O’Connell on the other. The second half got underway with a great try by Oscar who weaved his way through to space picked up speed and was unstoppable Akram now playing full back for Kanturk wasn’t able to catch him. Oscar was followed over the line by Farid and then Jake. Finally Kanturk found the line and ran in 3 tries on the trot bringing their tally to 4 tries all unconverted. We however weren’t done scoring and Farid finished the match with a try under the posts bringing the full time score to Old Christians 68 – 20 Kanturk.
