Young Munster U14 claim league title

November 7, 2018

The game opened with Garryowen racing into an early lead with a try and conversion followed by a penalty which left the score at 10-0 coming into the last quarter of the first half and Young Munster piling on sustained pressure at the Garryowen line before finely getting over near the posts. Following the conversion the score stood at Garryowen 10 – Young Munster 7.

The second half opened with Young Munster piling on the pressure and eventually scoring from a penalty which was duly converted to leave the score at 10-all.

From the kickoff the black and amber continued to pile on the pressure and after an earlier drop goal miss the pressure finally paid off with the ball being spread to the left wing where we scored in the corner and the conversion coming from the touchline to leave the score at Young Munster 17 – Garryowen 10.

From the kick off Garryowen piled on the pressure now and with stout defending the black and ambers held on for a famous victory, again well done to both teams for a fantastic game of rugby played in through Limerick spirit. Congratulations to both clubs and their coaches for producing two fine sides, special mention to the Young Munster coaches involved: Tony King, John O’Gorman, Jim Maher, Tony Hoban and Tom Dillon, director of youth rugby at the club, and all the parents.
