Much needed win
The j2s took on Ballincollig on a moonlit frosty Friday night. The score sheet was quickly opened by Old Christians with an unconverted try by John Purcell.
Despite a period of possession and dominance Ballincollig lost the ball to Liam Carty who made the most of his interception and grounded the try between the posts.
The try was converted by Paddy bringing the score to 12 nil. Old Christians kept up their dominace and were rewarded by another try this one by Brendan and that brought the half time score to 17 nil.
The second half was gotten under way by the Ballincollig kicker. Despite period of dominace by both sides neither could turn them into a score. Deep into the second half there was several scrums on the 5 meter line from the Old Chrisitans try line.
Twice Old Christians cleared the ball out once was deemed to have been preceded by a knock on giving Ballincollig the Scrum. Old Christians survived this spate of scrums near their own line by holding their discipline.
The J2’s played well holding their discipline particularly in the danger zones.
