Under-13 double in very busy week

ENNISCORTHY UNDER-13s had a very busy week and recorded two good wins in the SouthEast league.

The first was a re-fixed game played under lights in Wexford versus Wexford Wanderers. This was a real cracker with two very evenlymatched sides.

The home team struck early with a very good try which wasn't converted. Enniscorthy fought back well and, with lots of pressure, Colm O' Brien scored a try which was converted by Tom White.

Wexford responded with a breakaway try from David McDonald and it was converted. The Enniscorthy forwards put on a lot of pressure and they were awarded a penalty which Tom White converted, making the half-time score 12-10.

The second-half was a very tight affair and the game was decided midway through when Sebastian Pim intercepted a pass and ran from halfway to score a super try and Tom White converted. The final few minutes were very tense but Enniscorthy held out for the win on a scoreline of 17-12.

Their second game was much easier in the rain when they accounted for Wicklow 38-0. Scores were, tries from Colm O'Brien, Sebastian Pim, Michael Kinsella (two), Donal Harrington and Tom White who also converted four tries.

Panel: K. O'Connor, M. Kinsella, S. Pim, Barry Doyle, Ben Doyle, M. Murphy, M. Kelly, P. Kelly, T. White, E. Murphy, H. McCafferty, L. Martin, C. Breen, C. O'Brien, J.P. Farrell, D. Geraghty, D. Harrington, A. Horan, D. Medcalf, M. Kavanagh, C. Mackey, J. McWey, M. Redmond, N. McDowell, D. Mulligan, A. Kenny.
