First team gain revenge over Dungannon.
Two Con Callan intercept tries set the tone for an empathic 39 – 5 win for the firsts against Dungannon in the Ulster Bank League on Saturday afternoon. Barry Lynn opened the scoring on ten minutes with a well taken effort securing a loose ball near the half way to run in followed by a Marmo Penalty for an early 10 point lead. Callan then pounced for two intercept tries in two minutes to break any Dungannon resistance. Three more tries followed in the second half with scores from forwards Dan Mannion and Barry Fitzpatrick before the pick of the bunch created by Mike Lea and Paudie Geoghegan that left the defence outplayed and finished by Paudie. Killian Marmion converted three from six to go with his single penalty. Next up is the away trip to Derry next weekend.
U20’s win away at Old Wesley
The U20’s continued their winning form and showed whatever the first team can achieve they can do just as well with their own six try victory in a 38 – 8 win away at Old Wesley.
Matt O’Brien set the tone with Greystones opening try in response to Old Wesley opening up an early 8 – 0 lead and Greystones never looked back against an ill disciplined Wesley side who did nothing to help themselves. Zach Collis Lee ran in two tries with Ronan Delaney and Matt Dalton grabbing one each. Matt O’Brien successfully converted four from six attempts.
