Ennis RFC

Ennis RFC’s U16s continued their winning form against Kanturk of Cork at the weekend.

On the back of a good win against Kilrush the previous week, the Clare side carried their momentum into Saturday’s game as they opened the scoring after just two minutes with a powerful run from winger Luke Kennedy. Luke had to see off two defenders before crossing the line for the opening score of the game.

This was the theme of the half as Ennis took control with tries from Diarmuid Boyle, Odhrán Flynn, Andrew Cahir Whelan and a brace from Jacob Cassen-Rennie. Ennis finished the half 40 points ahead.

A lot of changes for Ennis came after half time but one thing remained the same – it was the hosts firmly in control. A beautiful cross field kick from Marco Cleary put Kaden Deegan Herlihy through for the opening score of the half. The Ennis pack began to pile on the pressure with strong carries from Cian Enright and Nicolas Roo.

Darren Halpin crossed next for Ennis with a strong carry close to the line. Another cross-field kick from Marco Cleary saw Evan Casey in space. He popped the ball off to Oisín O’Donoghue to run in at the corner. The final score of the game came from Odhrán Flynn with a strong carry beating a number of Kanturk defenders before dotting down under the posts.

The game ended Ennis 62- 7 Kanturk. Next up for Ennis is a visit from Cobh in a top of the table clash next Sunday at 1:30pm in Lees road.
