Match Report: U20s vs Sundays Well RFC 45-10 (Win)

Sundays Well started this game the stronger of the two teams but couldn’t convert possession and territory into points. Leaving two kick-able penalties behind them in the first 10 minutes – a let off for the the visiting side.

UCC did manage to get their hands on the ball and were the first to put some points on the board with Finn Carey going in at the corner after good play from Tom Fitzgerald. Steven Atkinson was next to cross the white wash after good build up play by UCC no.8 Lewis Grice.

Sundays Well reacted with a fine try of there own, stretching the UCC defense before some quick hands sent their winger in for their first score of the match.

With the forwards beginning to get a foothold at set-piece, UCC largely dominated the remainder of the half with try’s from Richard Thompson & a brace for Munster u19 star Travis Coomey along with three conversions from the boot of Conor’Dwyer, the visitors lead 31 – 5 at half time.

Again Sundays Well started the stronger of the two teams in the second half and scored their second try within 10 minutes of the re-star. All told,both teams found it hard to gain any kind of space and it was largely a din-dong battle for possession and territory throughout. In the end, UCC managed to get over for two more try’s, with Munster Academy Prop James French going under the posts with some direct running and Cian Fitzgerald dotting down in the last play of the game after some good build up play from Alex Molloy.
