Our U19 Rugby team took on Ardscoil na Trionoide, Athy in the Leinster Development Cup Round 2 in Athy RFC on November 24.
The match started off well with both sides showing dominance. After winning a number of battles, Patricians scored a deserved try by Jack Moore. But a short time later, the opposition broke through our defence and reclaimed a score with again no conversion.
Patricians went into the second half hopeful, but with an early try from Ardscoil, spirits dropped. Some time passed with no score until the opposition broke through again.
Then with a try from Adam Meehan, the Patricians were optimistic of finishing strongly. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time for the Patricians to equalise and Ardscoil advanced to the quarter-final. We now focus on the shield.
