Sports Roundup Friday 5th April 2019

TOP STORY
Senior 2nd’s League Final
The Senior 2nds hosted near neighbours Clongowes Wood College on Thursday in the semifinal of their League. A thoroughly entertaining game with both sides playing some real quality rugby kept the crowd guessing right to the end.

The College took the early control of the game and David’s Cudmore and O’Sullivan both finished off great team and individual tries respectively. John Shanahan converted both to make it 14 nil. Clongowes hit back with a converted try following some hard work from their forwards in the tight. The College then looked comfortably in control following two tries from Shane Fata and Cudmore, pushing to a 26-7 lead as Shanahan converted the second of Cudmore’s brace. As the half came to an end Clongowes exerted some good attacking pressure and bagged the last score of the half to make it 26-14 at the break.

The second half saw a real arm wrestle with both sides defending hard, attacking with pace and both having opportunities to add to their totals. The Clane side were the first to add to their total to narrow the gap to 5. Gavin Begley intercepted a pass just inside the north Kildare side’s 10 metre line and ran in unopposed. Shanahan added the extras and with time running out the College led 33-21. But once again Clongowes rallied and put the College under a lot of pressure and bagged another 5 pointer. With two to play the College fluffed their lines at the restart and Clongowes got the ball. A penalty gave them a chance for territory and after some quality recycling from the resulting line out, and some quality defending from the College who’s penalty count was high on the day, they managed to squeeze over the line to make it 33-31. The conversion was pushed to the right of the posts and the College were on the way to the Final.  Notable mentions go to Mark Moynihan, David O’Sullivan and man of the match Luke Dunleavy.

Senior 2nd’s League Final
The Senior 2nds headed to Donnybrook on Wednesday to take on Kilkenny in their League Final.  The College settled into the game quickest and dominated the early possession and territory statistics. They were eventually rewarded for this when John Shanahan went on an arching run to bag 5 points. Kilkenny slowly got up to game pace and when two College errors gave them good territory and the converted this into 7 points.  They then stretched their narrow lead with a penalty. David O’Sullivan got the College back level late in the half when he finished off a combination of good forward carrying and flowing backs play and crossed in the left corner. 10 a piece at the break.

Kilkenny started the second half better and soon nudged themselves in front with a try. The College battled hard but with little reward and errors were creeping into their game partly as a result of the, now constant, rain. They had to work hard to get deep into the Kilkenny 22 and Cormac King spotted a gap and darted for the line. His awareness was rewarded with 5 points. With the game finely balanced the next score was going to be key. Unfortunately, for the College, it would be Kilkenny who deal with the wet conditions better and get that score. The College dig deep but alas they would be runners up with a 22-15 score line.
Notable mentions go to Mark Moynihan, who led his team but his actions, and Harry Masterson who, only relatively new to the squad played like he had been a part of it all season.
