Dungarvan U16’s Final score 27-19 in Ballyrandle

Dungarvan u16s hosted Waterford City last Sunday in a friendly game. It turned out to be a cracking game with plenty of excitement created by some fantastic plays and solid defenses. With both teams coming off a long spell with few games, it was the visitors who were first touched down. Dugarvan struck back with 3 unanswered tries before half time. The first was a penalty try awarded after some great attack play from the backs, which ended when Peter chased down his own kick and was on for a try when he was tackled without the ball. Callum showed his speed to score next while Peter got his own name on the scoresheet before half time with a blind side move off a solid Dungarvan scrum. 17-7 half time score.
The second half continued where the first half left off with Dungarvan showing dominance. Lineouts proved to be difficult for both teams and scrums were eagerly contested, but within 10 minutes of the restart Tomàs and Joey had both bullied their way over the line to push the score out to 27-7. City struck back with 2 tries in the last 10 minutes but it wasn’t enough. Final score 27-19. Joey Riardon, Richie Whelan and Joe Kelly made great line breaks while Michael Horgan was the standout forward on the day, putting in tackles and being a nuisance to the City attack, while PJ McGrath gave a masterclass at full back, acting as the last man in defence, he tackled like a machine and was unfazed under the high ball.
Thanks to all our vocal supporters on the day. Great to see them back too.
