Good win for Wick­low U-18s

Bray People - - Sport -

Wick­low 41, En­nis­cor­thy 22: Wick­low en­ter­tained En­nis­cor­thy at Ash­town Lane on Sun­day in the South East League and won an in­ter­est­ing game by seven tries to three. Wick­low dom­i­nated the first half scor­ing six tries, through Shaun O’Brien (3), Niall Hardy, Char­lie But­ter­worth and John Jenk­in­son.

Si­mon Breen con­verted two. Wick­low for­wards played par­tic­u­larly well in the loose, okay in the line outs and poor in the scrums. Kil­lian O’Ma­honey had a very good all round game.

In the sec­ond half Wick­low seemed to loose con­cen­tra­tion and let En­nis­cor­thy back into the game.

The Wex­ford men had a good scrum and some speedy backs and used them to good ef­fect scor­ing three tries for their ef­forts. De­spite los­ing the mo­men­tum of the game for a while it was good to see Wick­low re­gain con­trol and score a nice try when they drove a maul from a line out in­side the En­nis­cor­thy 22 and Den­nis Hig­gins sent Ben Arm­strong over in the cor­ner. Shaun O’Brien kicked the con­ver­sion from the side line.

This was not a vin­tage per­for­mance from this Wick­low side. They must im­prove their de­fence and their scrum­mag­ing if they are to lead the charge in the Le­in­ster League this year which starts next week at home to Wick­low’s bo­gey team, Wex­ford, kick off 12.00 noon at Ash­town Lane.
