His­tory made as Ark­low CBS take to the field

Bray People - - GENERAL SPORT -

HIS­TORY WAS made on Fri­day, March 11, when Ark­low CBS took to the field to play Carnew BNS in a game of rugby at Ark­low Rugby Club.

The team has only been in ex­is­tence since the new year but have al­ready made huge strides with Prin­ci­pal, Mr.Peter Sum­mers, giv­ing his full back­ing.

They now play in a de­vel­op­ment league with Carnew BNS, East Glen­dalough and Wick­low Abbey/De La Salle com­pet­ing on a home and away with the top two teams play­ing off for the cup.

The game against Carnew was a tight and phys­i­cal af­fair with both teams show­ing great com­mit­ment and en­deav­our. The CBS team re­ally tested the Carnew de­fence but ul­ti­mately mis­takes on the day proved costly as Carnew won 38-7.

The Carnew team had a num­ber of play­ers from rugby clubs and were well or­gan­ised with Conor Fan­ning their stand out player.

Best on the day for the CBS team was school cap­tain Ryan Weller with some awe­some tack­les and ball car­ries. You could not fault ei­ther team for ef­fort and the match was played in the true spirit of the game. Congratulations to all con­cerned.

On Wed­nes­day, March 16, Ark­low CBS played East Glen­dalough in only their sec­ond com­pet­i­tive game ever and again showed great ef­fort and de­sire.

While the score of 38-7 was a re­peat of the pre­vi­ous week, the team played with more direc­tion and again showed how they are im­prov­ing.

The well or­gan­ised de­fence of East Glen­dalough proved hard to break down but the ef­fort of the CBS boys paid off with a try right on the fi­nal whis­tle from Seán Byrne.

Best for East Glen­dalough on the day was Aaron Mur­phy who from the right wing con­stantly caused the CBS de­fence prob­lems with jink­ing runs and great off loads.

The CBS cause was aided by some fine per­for­mances from Seán Byrne and John Flood in the pack and Alex Kenny and Ma­son Mid­dle­ton in the backs.
