Clontarf Ballinahinch UBL round 3

Summer makes a come back in late September.

Clontarf hosting Ballinahich. The visitor started the game well and with the help of the wind and some very good defensive pressure.  They ended up frustrating the locals and keeping their try line free and the score board stuck at 0. meanwhile scoring a try and a penalty.

The second half started better for Clontarf and they finally got on the scoreboard via a penalty. This led to the locals finally breaking the defensive stranglehold Ballinahinch had so far maintained. Tries then came in from magic Mick three times for a hat trick then his brother got on the scoreboard as well. despite the widening gap Ballinahinch kept the pressure on through their scrum. and managed to claw back a try. Clontarf then finished the game on a high with another try from Michael Brown.
