Match Report

Enniskillen Under 15 Girls made the long trip to Larne on Sunday to meet the only other unbeaten team in the League. Straight from the kick off Enniskillen took the game to Larne at a ferocious pace. The ball must have passed through nearly every player’s hands before Sophie Barrett made a trade mark bursting run through the midfield to score the first try of the game with barely 4 minutes on the clock. This was converted by Nadine Hunter to leave the score 7-0.
Complacency set in and straight from the kick off Larne scored a try of their own but were unable to get the crucial conversion leaving the score 7-5. Enniskillen by this time had the long journey out of their systems and scored three ties on the bounce; a brace from Nadine Hunter and a length of the pitch solo effort by India Daley doing the trick, all of which were converted by Nadine. A further try by Larne left the half time score 28-10.
For the second match in a row Skins came out at half time expecting things to continue their own way but again Larne pushed them back and got their reward with a converted try. Enniskillen rallied again with superb ball retention and rucking from the pack, excellently marshalled by the impressive Michelle Elliott at scrum half. Skins scored another three tries before the finish with a brace from Alannah Brennan who was tormenting the Larne defence, and one from Lauren Kilfedder, just rewards for her tireless work all day. With two conversions this left the final score 45-17 and the girls top of the league, and unbeaten to date.
This was a great team performance and all players deserve a mention for their attitude and work rate. The pack were particularly impressive with big games from Lucy, Esther, Caitlin, Cassie, Ellen and Nadine. Sunday the 18th will be the last game of 2016 at home to Letterkenny and, considering the last game against the side, it is sure to be a Christmas Cracker.
