Carlow under 14's were in Portarlington on Sunday for their latest game of the Leinster League. From the start the Portarlington forwards dominated winning ball after ball at the breakdown and also winning every scrum in the first half. Without possession it was always going to be a long day. The tries kept coming as a result of forward dominance for Portarlington. By half time that had 5 tries on the board. They would score another 4 in the second half. Discipline issues for the hosts gave Carlow some possession in the first half and after Seamus Mc cullough crashed through a number of tackles he passed to Eoin Thompson who scored under the posts. aaoron Gordon added the extras. In the seond half Portarling continued to give away penalties and in fairess to Carlow they did capitalise on this wining good line out possession and going through some lovely plays. But from A Carlow point of view it was Eoin Townsend's day. He seemd to be everywhere on the fied putting in tackle after tackle and he was rewarded by scoring all of Carlow's four triesv on the day. Excellen performance Eoin. Others who tried hard were Martin Drea, Seamus Mc Cullough and Oisin Byrne. Final score 52-24. Next up Mullingar
CARLOW U16s VS ROSCREA 24-19 Leinster League phase 1 Saturday saw our U16s step up for this seasons first round of the Leinster League qualifiers vs Roscrea, a team whom we have never encountered before. Although a windy day,the sun was out in Oakpark. The first half was, lets just say a half Carlow would like to forget. Almost the entire half was played in Carlows territory, although our defence did stand up to test overall, it was silly mistake after mistake,nobody stood up to make decisions,we were crucified in the scrum,lineouts were a disaster & only for a breakthrough run from captain Barry Gray who touched down for a try right between the posts, & conversion for Ben Crotty, Carlow were a long way from adding points to the scoreboard.The half time score not a reflection of the game was 7-5 to Carlow. The second half started like the first,still no improvement in organization from Carlow, no communication, & their defence now lacked structure which Roscrea took full advantage of, with a simple try to up the score to 7-12.Then all of a sudden, as if someone turned on a switch Carlow got it together somewhat. Some good rucks & much better scrums with much improved ball handling, another try from Barry Gray after a super turnover ball from Ciaran Burke, evened not only the score but also levelled the teams game play. Soon after another great break through run from Barry set up Donal O Gorman for his first try of the season on the wing. With play mainly in Roscreas half now, it was Carlow who were becoming more dominant, after a few not so pretty lineouts,at last a clean input & clean win of the ball by Carlow led to what can only be called a 'class' maul,the drive & passion in it reminded spectators of just how good this team can be when they get it together, although the ball was brought to the line,it was just held short,but Carlow of old didn't' give up & persisted for Barry Gray to touch down for his 3rd try of the day, & again Ben Crotty converted & a 27-12 lead. A slack moment did allow Roscrea in for another try but the full time whistle went with a 24-19 score to Carlow. Thanks to Michael Carbery for stepping in to ref the match.Next up next week, Dundalk away.
