Mitchelstown Rugby Club – The run continues

Junior 1 Division 3 league – final round

Mitchelstown 14 Killarney 13

The league campaign continued with a fine win in Currabowen, with the result in the balance until the final whistle, leaving the boys in second place in the table behind Tralee, who will take the automatic promotion spot. Dungarvan will more than likely fill the first playoff place, leaving another close encounter in Currabowen with Killarney the visitors.

It was a bleak, windy, and wet day with the breeze blowing into the dressing room corner. The crowd were well wrapped up, but the chilling showers were almost enough to dull the senses. The first period was a turgid affair, with the visitors having the benefit of the stiff breeze, but accurate kicking from hand or tee was difficult. The net result was a penalty to each side being the only notes in the referee’s notebook.

The Kerry men took the game to us in the second half, and consecutive drives resulted in a try early in the half. The home side did not panic, however, and a Magee penalty and a try from the back of an excellent maul, executed by the guile and pace of Josh Evans, saw ‘town back in the lead by a point. Killarney were not finished, though and went ahead with six minutes to go. Defeat was staring us in the face, and the prospect of going to Dungarvan for a semi-final was looming large.

The boys did not disappoint, and worked themselves back into a scoring position. A penalty was awarded, Patrick Magee did not flinch under the pressure, and slotted home the winning penalty to rapturous applause with barely a minute to go. We were joined in Jackie O’Brien’s by many of the Killarney team who really appreciated the fine buffet and soup on offer, and were astonished by the special offer for match day pints. Thanks to all the staff and proprietors for their usual attention to detail, and pleasant service.

 

 Girls Rugby Under 16

Training this week will be in Currabowen at 8pm Wednesday evening. Please be ready to go on the field, remember your gum shields.


Boys Rugby Under 14

Only training last Saturday at Currabowen, but there was a great turnout under the tutelage of Leonard, Sean and Andy. Clonakilty are on the schedule for the weekend, so good luck lads.


Rugby Under 10

Ruth and the gang continued with winning ways, accounting for a good Youghal side by 12-6.

 

Rugby Under 8

Fermoy came to play in Currabowen, and we fielded two teams against them. The lads played great defensive rugby, and also showed huge improvement in attack.

Thanks to all the team, coaches Louise and Des, and parents who looked after all the catering, and tied bootlaces, and wiped grazes.


LOTTO - € 1,800 LOTTO next Sunday.

No lottery winner last Sunday week in Paul Roches Bar, whose imminent demise was strenuously denied by Densie, where we concluded the draw. The numbers drawn were 2, 5, 19, and 23. There was no jackpot winner.

Many thanks to all the staff of the bar for facilitating last week’s draw, and for the sustaining beverages. Lucky dip winners: Jackie O’Briens - €50, John Ryan ( Park Utd ) - €50, Wayne McCarthy - €25, €25 – Christy Murphy

The next draw will be Sunday, 17th February, in Walsh’sBar, which is famous for its Yard Bar music venue.

The new jackpot will be €1,800 for a single winner, or shared if more than one winner.

Entry is only €2 per pick of 4 numbers or 3 tickets for €5.

Remember, the odds of getting 4 numbers in our lottery is very close to the same as getting 4 numbers in the national lottery, but our prize is far bigger.

Annual tickets are available at €50 for 26 draws, with a bonus draw only for annuals. Contact Owen on 087-8112991 for annual tickets, or any other committee member. Rugby Club Lotto is now also available to play online at www.mitchelstownrugby.com
