U16s lose narrowly

Carrick U16s entertained Oughterard in Keenaghan last Saturday in the Connacht U16 Development League.

Oughterard proved their mettle as League Leaders in a pulsating and entertaining match, winning 15-9. Oughterard scored three unconverted tries and led 15-0 after 20 minutes but then Carrick knuckled down and took them on.

Oughterard were not to score again in the match but their defence was well marshalled. Carrick converted three penalties thanks to the boot of Paul Woods. In the last 10 minutes, Carrick did everything to score a try but Oughterard held out.
