Carrick entertained Ballyhaunis in the Connacht U16 Development League in Keenaghan on Saturday needing a win to keep then in contention in the League.
With conditions for rugby near perfect this led to Carrick deciding to play open, flowing rugby which they did with aplomb putting 50 points on the scoreboard and just conceding 7.
Paul Woods went over for a try in the first minute which he duly converted and more tries followed, the scorers being James Og Maguire, Tom McKeon, Liam Phelan Sean Lenehan, Matthew Earley, James Maguire and Adam O’Connor with five of these tries converted by Woods and Lenehan.
This was a great team performance but greater challenges will arise especially next week’s home match against leaders, Oughterard - check Rugby Club website for date and kick off time.
Team: Sean Lenehan, Liam Phelan, Tom McKeon, Matthew Earley, Conor Hawksby, Paul Woods, Alan Crowe, James Maguire, Liam Taylor, Adam O’Connor, Cathal Gormley, Kevin Brady, Roarke Toal, Turlough Moore, James Og Maguire.
