Match Reports

Under 16s

Ballincollig U16s were beaten in their away league game to Old Christians last Saturday. Both sides were level at half time with a penalty each. This was a closely contested match with some great forward play and back play by both teams. Ballincollig individual tackling was good but the defensive line was too slow coming up to the Old Christians attacking back line. In the second half Old Christians scored a try, a conversion and a penalty for a final score of 13 points to 3. Even though Ballincollig were strong in the set pieces their continuity play between both the backs and forwards was the difference between the 2 sides. Ballincollig have plenty to build on before their next league match in 2 weeks time. Well done lads

Under 18s

Ballincollig RFC U18s got their league campaign back on track on last sat 9th Nov with a comprehensive victory over Dolphin at sun drenched Tanner Park. Within the first 15 minutes Ballincollig had registered 3 tries from Aaron Mc Namara (2) and Daire Buckley Peter Kelleher and Shane Quinlan also crossed the whitewash a few conversions from Aaron O’Flynn added further to their visitors woes before the referee called a halt to proceedings for half time.. On the resumption Ballincollig who were totally dominant in all sectors emptied their bench and added further pain to Dolphin with tries from Robert Nyhan (2) Michael O’Shea, &James O’Donnell. Dolphin to their credit played valiantly to the end but Ballincollig’s no surrender attitude ensured their line would not be crossed on this occasion. A good performance from the Ballincollig backs, Aaron O’Flynn, Cameron Lucey, James O’Donnell, Aaron Mc Namara, Shane Quinlan, Jack O’Sullivan, Scott Vaughan, Cameron Thornton, Colin Casey Brian Verling and Dave Mc Coy who were on the offensive for most of the game pinned the opposition back who were given very few chances to launch any forays into the opposition half. Ballincollig forwards Peter Kelleher, Daire Buckley, Peaches Kelleher, Dave O’Brien, Michael O’Shea, Robert O’Donoghue, Dylan Desmond, Fionnán Mc Dermott, completely dominated proceedings at scrum, Ruck, maul and line out time. Next week the boys will have a much sterner contest when they host Old Christians’ @ Tanner Park.
