Match Report

The Under 14s knew it would be a difficult task against a very well drilled team who had the advantage of some very large and strong lads in their pack, however right from the kick off they showed that they were not going to be intimidated and set about the task with great enthusiasm, moving the ball well with the forwards taking it through several phases to gain the upper hand and allowing the backs to use their pace they put Letterkenny under prolonged pressure, they were rewarded after nine minutes when Jay Maguire received a great pass on the right wing and crossed the line for the first score of the match, Daire Hill just missed the resultant conversion to leave it 5 nil after 9 minutes.

The Letterkenny No. 8 who had been their star player in the earlier league game once again proved very difficult to stop after 15 minutes and powered over for a converted try to take the lead for the visiting team with the successful conversion giving them a two point advantage.
 
The young Skins players were not taking a backward step and continued to threaten the Letterkenny line and after the visitors relieved the pressure with a deep kick back into the home 22 it was superbly returned from Jack O'Hare playing at 15 who showed great pace and determination to evade several tackles to cross the touchline on the left flank to restore a three point advantage, leaving it 10 to 7 at the end of the 1st half.
 
The second half resumed with the home side again taking the upper hand and after several phases of play young O,Hare again broke through for his second try of the morning which out half Hill slotted over to increase the lead to 17 to 7. Unfortunately this was the last points for the Enniskillen boys and with ten minutes left the visiting team used their larger pack to break down the home defense with some good phase play before crossing twice for two converted scores which left it 21 to 17 at the final whistle.
 
However this was a very good performance against Letterkenny who have dominated this season and certainly bodes well for the upcoming cup campaign but also for next season as most of the team will continue together.
