Sports Roundup Friday 19th October 2018

RUGBY
Leinster Senior League Newbridge 25 Pres Bray 23
The Seniors travelled to Wicklow this week to take on Pres., Bray in this week's round of the Senior League. After last year's encounters, the College expected the hosts to come quickly out of the blocks and that's what they got.

After an early missed penalty, Pres. scored two tries, converting the first, carving through the College defensive line. The College were made to work hard to gain territory and were eventually rewarded when Marcus Kiely finished a fine attack in the corner. Jack Doyle converted excellently. The Wicklow side then scored a well executed first phase try to add seven to their total to make it 17-7. The half ended with the teams trading penalties and the College trailing 20-10.

A more focused and hungry looking College side took to the field in the second half and this was reflected on the scoreboard. Rob Scully dived in at the right corner, following some brilliant forward play, for a try.  He then turned provider as he fed Donal Conroy who crossed in the same corner. Doyle then played the 9s role and snipped from the base of a ruck for a five pointer following some great 15-man rugby. With Doyle coming close but not converting any of these the score was 25-20 to the College with minutes left. The home side gathered themselves and their hard work in pushing into the College half was rewarded with a kickable  penalty which they duly converted to put just two between the teams. Deep into injury time Pres. were awarded a penalty 20 metres out which they chose to kick. It was pushed across the face and beyond the far post and wide. The College weathered a late rally and it was left to Jack Hannon to clear the ball from a scrum to end the game and see the College take a 25-23 bonus point away win.
Special mentions go to David Higgins, Like Rigney and Jordan Nolan.

Leinster Junior League Newbridge 27 Pres Bray 35
Our Juniors hosted a very strong Pres Bray side in the third round of the Leinster Schools’ Junior League.  We played quite well in the first half but were guilty of conceding some soft tries, mainly down to missing tackles.  Pres to their credit, punished every one of these errors for a 25 nil half time lead.  In the second half, we tried to pick up the scraps and do ourselves some justice and were rewarded when Harry Farrell scored in the corner after a magnificent offload from Lucas Berti.  From the restart, Calum Corcoran ran clear from his own half to put the game back in the balance, 25 12 with 20 minutes to go.  When Paddy Gaire scored from close in, it looked as though it was game on… 25 17. Unfortunately, Pres scored straight from the restart.  We roared back into the game and Lucas Berti scored to leave the score 32 22.  Pres then tagged on a penalty to extend their lead to 13 points with a few minutes left.  We showed great character to score the final try of the game through Harry Rigney and leave the full time score 35 27 to Pres.  In the end, we had given ourselves too much work to do after the first half but showed what we are really made of in the second.  Onwards and upwards now with a trip to Temple Carrig next Wednesday, with our eyes firmly set of qualifying for the knock out stages of the league.


Ellers v St Mary’s College
The 'Ellers' traveled with 3 teams to St Marys College on Wednesday the 17th of October. Squad rotation between the A's, B's and C's continued with new combinations, positions and groupings used to try and identify potential and optimize performance. All three sides performed brilliantly with real progress noted across all panels and players.
The C's played two games winning one (19-5) and losing the other (0-24). What was notable about their effort was the group and individual improvement since last week.  Many are pushing for B team consideration and have improved significantly since week one of the term. Impressive for the C's were.....
The B's produced a display full of grit, character and a deep work ethic to overturn a half time deficit to come out on the right side of a 27-19 scoreline. The work they did collectively in the last week on defensive organisation, attacking depth and rucking speed delivered the goods and allowed for all to enjoy the free flowing style of rugby promoted by the coaching group. Strong performers for the Bs were....
The A's took a great win 19-5 win against a well drilled, robust and physically strong St Marys outfit. The win was built on dogged, determined and dynamic defence coupled with sharp back play particularly from turnovers. Rucking was a little slow and is an area for improvement but the general standard of play delivered by the squad was of a very high standard. The pick of the A's on this occasion were .....
Next up is an A and B fixture at home Vs Presentation College, Bray on Wednesday the 24th of October.

Other Results: Junior B 47 Pres., Bray 31; Inter A 31 Gonzaga 39; Inter B 20 Gonzaga 10; Inter C 10 Gonzaga 31;

HOCKEY
Minor B’s captained by Holly Mae and Moya Flynn took on Bray in a friendly on Wednesday.  Main aim today was to play as a unit and this they did.  Moya once again stepped up to fill the goalkeeping position and pulled off some lovely saves.  Holly Mae and Abi held the centre of defence and cleared wide when required. Sophie and Faith right and left back attacked from the back and linked up well with the midfield trio of Grace, Anna and Roshana.  Grace used her role as play maker to our advantage and connected beautifully with our busy forwards. Amy, Lucy and Caoimhe kept the Bray defence busy with plenty of circle entries and short corners. Final score 5 nil.

Other Results: Junior 3rds 0 Loretto Bray 3; Senior 2nds 2 Mount Sackville 1.
