Ballina Killaloe RFC U9s travelled to Tom Clifford park in Limerick to play Young Munsters on Sunday 8th of December.
Ballina Killaloe fielded 2 teams from a squad of 22 players. Both teams played two very competitive games with Ballina Killaloe wining all four games 6-0, 4-1, 4-2 and 4-1.
The ball handling and tackling skills worked in training over the last few weeks was very evident in the way the boys controlled each game and kept Young Munster under pressure at all times.
Team 1 players were Zak Egan, Sean McMahon, Tony Foley, Cormac Quinn, Simon Grace, Paul Frost, Callum Black, Eoin Heffron, Sam Lancaster, Jake Dundon, Brendan Minogue
Team 2 players were Oisin Minogue, Evan Carey, Ricky Shannahan, Brain McGrath, Fionn O’Casey, Conor Neill, Ryan Imhoff, Jake Moloney, Adain Foley, Diarmuid Coleman, Tom Wood
Ballina/Killaloe U9s travelled to Bohemians RFC on Sunday last to take on 2 of their U9 selections. Played in good conditions on an excellent pitch, these were two great displays by the Ballina/Killaloe boys.
The first game began very brightly for Bohemians who went all out for attack from the first whistle and our boys had to be alert and strong in the tackle. After weathering the early storm the team began to put some fine running and passing moves together and were rewarded with a fine try. This was quickly followed by three more. Bohemians then began to exert some more pressure but with the Ballina/Killaloe boys putting in some super tackles we managed to keep the Bohs lads down to only two scores. Later in the game, some strong running produced some excellent attacking play and rewarded us with a final try. Ballina/Killaloe victorious by five tries to two.
The second game was also played in a very sporting manner by both teams. Ballina/Killaloe started with great purpose and this led to two superb scores early on in the game. There followed then a very good period for Bohemians, who responded with two well taken tries after a great defensive effort by our boys. Well into the second half the sides were still level, both sides committing everything and some great tackling and strong mauling features of the game. Our lads managed to eventually breach their defenses and put together a fine team effort which was finished in the corner. In the final minutes Bohemians threw everything at our lads in a last effort to tie up the game but we defended very well and managed to hold out for victory in a very close contest. Ballina/Killaloe winners three to two. Both teams congratulated each other at the end of two mighty contests and now look forward to meeting again in the future.
