South Munster U13 League Clonakilty V Skibbereen   20/12/2017

Clon U13s continue their good run of form with a convincing away win to Skibbereen

Captain Patrick McCarthy set the tone in the first half with three tries and two try saving tackles before half time. He scored in the first few minutes in the corner with a great individual effort from about 40 metres out.

He scored again in the corner after approximately 10 minutes with an identical try.

Then came two outstanding try saving tackles from the captain. Skib' speedy centre broke through only to be hunted down and caught with a certain try saving tackle into touch by McCarthy. Five minutes later almost exactly the same thing happened with a few Clon boys falling off tackles. Their centre was clear before McCarthy came from nowhere again to tackle him into touch.

Killian Herily scored a great try at about 20 minutes. Great work by the pack at the breakdown lead to fast hands through the back line. With men over out wide, Killian backed himself and touched down ten metres from the touch line.

McCarthy went over again in the corner again just before half time.

Half time score 20-0.

Three changes made at scrum half, winger and front row at half time. All performed well. Odhran Mulcahy shone on the wing with two magnificent finishes in the right corner. The first one saw him show a clean pair of heals to the Skib cover to touch down in the corner.

The second half saw Mulcahy break two tackles before throwing a beautiful side step, cutting between two defenders and finishing yet again in the corner.

Herily added his second of the game at the death, breaking a couple of tackles in the centre of the pitch before turning his opposite number inside out and touching down under the posts.

Ronan Hayes got his first conversion of the day with the final kick of the match.

Clon never let up for the entirety of the game and defended manfully throughout keeping Skibbereen out of our twenty two bar two occasions. They were outstanding going forward putting the ball through the hands.

Final game before Christmas is V Bandon away.
