The U-16’s had a tough home draw in the West Munster Cup at O’Dowd Park last Saturday against Castleisland. Played in good conditions on a sticky pitch the match started as expected with both sides going at it at full pace. Castleisland maintained early pressure but the home defence held out forcing a turnover for Jack Drinan who capitalised on the situation and ran from inside his own 22, evading 5 defenders and leaving the opposing full-back flat footed to score under the posts. Tom Hoare converted.
