Ennis U16s continue good run by crushing Kanturk

Ennis RFC 62
Kanturk RFC 7

After a strong performance and win against Kilrush the previous week, Ennis RFC’s U16s carried their momentum into their Pan Munster Phase Two Round Four game, writes Ivan Smyth.

They enjoyed the perfect start as winger Luke Kennedy scorched past two defenders before crossing the line for the opening score of the game.

Ennis took control with tries from Diarmuid Boyle, Odhrán Flynn, Andrew Cahir Whelan and a brace from Jacob Cassen-Rennie helping them enjoy a 40 point half time lead. The Clare side utilised their full squad after half time but Ennis remained in firm control.

A beautiful cross field kick from Marco Cleary put Kaden Deegan Herlihy through for the opening score of the second half. The Ennis pack began to pile on the pressure with strong carried from Cian Enright and Nicolas Roos.

Darren Halpin crossed next for Ennis with a strong carry close to the line. Another cross field kick from Cleary found 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 as he powered past the Kanturk defence before dotting down under the posts. Next up for Ennis is a visit from Cobh in a top of the table clash this Sunday at 1.30pm in Lees Road.

Ennis RFC:
Diarmuid Boyle, Luke Kennedy, Aaron Malone, Jack Dillon, Marco Cleary, Odhran Flynn, Sean Queally, Jacob Casson-Rennie, Conall O’Donovan, Michael Sweeney, Daniel Humphries, Cillian McInerney, Adrian Moloney, Matthew Jordan-Allen, John Sweeney.
