BKRFC U13s recorded their first win of the league with a 33-7 victory over Ennis RFC in Clarisford park. In trying conditions with torrential downpours at the start of the game, the pitch held up well as did the BKRFC defence, as Ennis owned the ball for the first 10 minutes but were unable to make any headway as the BKRFC line held well with everyone putting in strong tackles. Lifting the seige, BKRFC managed to work the ball upfield and after a couple of direct runs, breaking the gainline, the ball was passed out wide to the wing for BKRFC to round the Ennis defence and score under the posts. Two more tries followed before halftime, with BKFRC leading 19-0 at the break.
With Ennis suffering a couple of injuries and having only the 15 players, a couple of the BKRFC substitutes stepped into the breach and lined out on the Ennis side so to maintain a full 15 v 15. Special mention must go to Evan Wood who after dotting down for BKRFC, changed jersey’s to score for Ennis as well a putting a couple of try saving tackles on fellow BKRFC teammate Noel McGrath as he surged for the Ennis line.
Many thanks to Ennis and their supporters who travelled for what was an excellent game and a special thanks to all those who braved the inclement conditions on the sideline to support both sides.
