Match Report

The Under 16 team arrived with an unbeaten record so far this season but recognised that Malone represented possibly their sternest test as they have competed in the Premier League for last four years.

However from the start they immediately showed their intentions with the pack giving secure ball from the first scrum and scrum half Josh Kyle feeding Tyler Millar a great pass to allow the centre the space to break the defensive line and score under the posts with only 4 minutes gone.

Malone came back with two tries the first unconverted leaving it 12 to 7 after twenty minutes. But the next score was a tremendous effort from the Fermanagh lads with the pack carrying it forward through strong running and great offloads to once again letting Millar to add the five points and conclude the first half at 12 all.After several phases with the pack taking it forward it was passed out to winger Connor Kent for his first score and the tricky conversion by out half Jarlaith Maguire brought the tally to 17 to 12 at the end of the first period.

The second period started with the Skins responding to instructions and good passing from the backs brought Millar his hat trick of hat tricks in competitive games this season and Maguire made the difficult conversion look easy to add the additional 2.

Game management came into play to secure the next score when from a penalty won by captain Aiden McKenna allowed quick thinking scrum half Kyle to sprint over in the corner bringing the scoreline to 31 to 12.

Soft defence brought Malone back into the game with a converted try and 7 points.

The pack really started to dominate with back row trio of Cleary Kelly and McKenna making great ground and No. eight Kelly setting up Cleary for a great try under the posts meaning an easy slot over for Maguire.

Malone displayed that they would,nt give up when with five minutes to play a good line from their out-half released their winger to bring the scoreline to 38 to 24.

But Enniskillen were not to be out done and with the last play second row Dairmuid Scallon was rewarded for his hard work throughout the game when he picked up from a ruck 10 yards out and drove over despite the efforts of several Malone tacklers with the conversion the final score was 45 to 24.
