Match Report

Enniskillen U16s 23
Monaghan U16s 48
 
Monaghan travelled to Mullaghmeen with only 12 players last Saturday and Enniskillen agreed to match numbers for the contest, leading to players being out of position and numerous changes to give all a fairly equal amount of game time with a view to player development. 
Monaghan hit early with a score and a few missed tackles resulted in a flattering scoreline but Enniskillen did manage 4 great tries, the first seeing strong running create a chance which was well executed by Richard Mulcahy. The second saw dominant forward play putting Cahir Mcelhill in space with a few hand offs to score under the posts. A similar sequence of play saw Sean Mcmanus finish off another. The best score of the day came last with the forwards carrying the ball into contact and recycling for the backs, and Ethan Daley looping around to finish off a great team try. A final score of 48 to 23 made for a good spectacle and showed the young side are well capable of scoring tries and some work on their defence should help bring the side forward.
