U13's update   01/11/2017

Last Saturday Clonakilty U13s played their first official league game since moving from minis. With their first two league games postponed the lads were chomping at the bit for a bit of action and they certainly didn't disappoint.

From the off they took the game to Mallow and within 5 minutes were 10 nil up with great work at the base of the scrum from Captain Patrick McCarthy. Indeed the whole squad showed great skills and knowledge throughout the game for a side who have not played on a full pitch or a kicking game before.

The forwards dominated the set piece giving a great platform for Sean Og O'Flynn to distribute quick ball to out-half Ronan Hayes, who got his backline going excellently. Strong running from the back row of Paul Murphy, Patrick McCarthy, Alan O'Driscoll and Donnacha Walsh backed up with some excellent rucking from the rest of the forwards creating the space to get the backs running at the opposition with Elliot Ager, Taylor Hennessy and Alexsi Benezar making great yardage. Clon crossed the Mallow line five times before halftime.

The scrums became uncontested in the second half as Mallow were feeling the pressure of the strong set piece from the Clon front 5. This brought Mallow into the game and Clon found themselves defending for periods of the second half. However Clon defended soundly and cleared their lines when Mallow were pressing. The home side weathered any storm Mallow blew up and crossed the line twice more before full time with one conversion with the final score 37-0.

A great performance from the whole squad and the large support of their parents was much appreciated.

Next Saturday promises to be a sterner test when Cork Con visit with kick off @ 10am. Your support would be appreciated.
