Connacht Under 16s Development League
Carrick RFC Under 16s entertained Westport last Saturday in Keenaghan in a clash between the 2nd and 3rd place teams in the League and a win that would put Carrick in contention for a place in the final.
However Westport travelled in confidence with a well-disciplined team and Carrick, not for the first time, started slowly. After 20 minutes Carrick were 12-nil down.
Carrick knuckled down and brought the game to Westport and spread the game wide. Gavan Maguire and Eoin McLoughlin were very unlucky when both were forced out at the corner with the try line beckoning. The Westport defence held out and converted a penalty and scored a further try to leave the final score 22 nil.
It was a good team performance by Carrick with the score line somewhat flattering Westport but the slow start by Carrick did not help and it is something that this team must work on ahead of the cup campaign.
Carrick: Sean Lenehan, Gavan Maguire, Tom McKeon, Matthew Earley (capt), Conor Hawksby, Paul Woods, Alan Crowe, James Óg Maguire, Turlough Moore, Cathal Gormley, Kevin Brady, Liam Taylor, Liam Phelan, James Maguire, Adam O’Connor Subs: Ethan Beirne, James Haughey, Brian King, Ruairi King, Eoin McLoughlin and Robin Weaver.
