Sports Roundup Friday 9th December 2016

RUGBY

Senior League Quarter Final: SCT 22 St Andrew’s College 23
The Senior 1st headed to St. Andrew's for a League Quarter Final.

The first half saw two unconverted St.Andrew's tries booked with an early try from Kevin Kyne and a late one from Theodore Hovenden Kelly. Luke Moloney converted both. A massively physical game from both sides would become tougher for the College on 20 minutes with a red card. A step up from the College saw them head into the break 14-10 up.

The home side started the second half the brighter and pushed to a 20-14 lead with a converted try and penalty. The College dug deep and when Kyne hit the line at pace he drew his man and offloaded to Johhny Deane. Deane rounded the scrambling home defence to bag 5 points. Moloney missed the conversion but kicked a penalty minutes late to put the College 22-20 with 2 minutes remaining. However, the late joy of last week saw late disappointment this as St. Andrew's kicked a penalty to win 23-22.
A hugely positive performance sadly didn't come with a win but special mention must go to Paddy Ryan, Cian Prendergast and man of the match Kevin Kyne.

Junior League Quarter Final: JCT 60 St Andrew’s College 0
Our a Juniors booked a spot in the semi finals of this year's Junior Schools League after a facility win over St Andrews College. Three minutes in we scored a try through Jamie Gaire after a great offload from Jack O'Connell. After this try, we were guilty of playing the wrong game in the wrong areas of the pitch and didn't score again until almost 20 minutes in when Conor McGroary ran clear to score. Andrews then managed to camp on our line after this and this was really the turning point of the game.  Donal Conroy intercepted close to our own line and sprinted clear to score a fine individual try. We were really motoring now and further tries from Marcus Kiely, captain John Shanahan (2) saw us take a 36:0 half time lead. Shanahan and Sam Cahill successful with one kick each.

In the second half, with the result of the game beyond conclusion, we relaxed and played some really entertaining rugby and scored four more tries Kiely, Cahill, Cormac King and man of the match Jack O'Connell. Cahill and Shanahan added another conversion each for a fine 58:0 final score. Others to impress were Jack Sargent up front and Mark Dennis. We now face a far more difficult encounter with Gonzaga College which we already beat narrowly in the group section by 17 points to 7. This game is due to take place next Wednesday 14th December.
