Bray People - - SPORT -

WICK­LOW 2ND XV recorded a fine win against an in­ex­pe­ri­enced Rath­drum sec­onds at Ash­town Lane on Satur­day. Wick­low were de­ter­mined to get their sea­son off with a good win. They de­liv­ered an ag­gres­sive and de­ter­mined per­for­mance to record an ex­cel­lent victory

Rath­drum started well and soon had Wick­low un­der pres­sure. They scored two early tries and a shell­shocked Wick- low side were 14-0 down in the first 10 min­utes. Once they com­posed them­selves and started to go through the phases they had far too much for Rath­drum. Tries from Scott Mor­ton, Shaun O’Brien, Barra Kuntz, and a cou­ple each from Ger Crow­ley and An­thony Clarke as well as an ex­cel­lent kick­ing dis­play from the out­stand­ing Ro­nan Hur­ley saw Wick­low well out of sight.

This is again a very young panel who have fan­tas­tic po­ten­tial. Debu­tants Ja­son Cooper and Ciaran Olo­han gave im­pres- sive per­for­mances. Also the re­turn of Barry Traynor and Alan Hunter to Wick­low colours gave Wick­low some much needed ex­pe­ri­ence in the pack, where Barry Hur­ley was also out­stand­ing. Over­all a good day at the of­fice for all con­cerned.

Alan Hunter, Sean O’Brien, Eanna Kileen, Barry Traynor, Barry Hur­ley, Matt Byrne, Ja­son Cooper, Liam Byrne, Shane Byrne, Ro­nan Hur­ley, Johnny Watchorn, Barra Kunz, Lloyd Scraggs, Scott Mor­ton, David Acres. Ger Crow­ley, An­thony Clarke, Ciaran Olo­han, Brian Sillery, James Fox.
