North East Leinster Branch Cup Final - Boyne 18pts Athboy 6pts
Boyne's domestic season ended on an emotional and poignant note on Sunday last at Ardee when their 3rds completed a successful McGee Cup campaign when they overcame a gallant Athboy side on the score 18pts to 6pts.
The team and mentors dedicated this win to their departed team member, Beechy McCreanor, who captained the side at the start of the season before his sad demise which rocked the rugby fraternity.
Boyne 17's finished the season with a tight loss to All-Ireland Champions & local rivals Navan. Following on from the loss in the Leinster League final, Navan went on to win the All-Ireland title. Boyne defeated Enniscorthy in the quarter final of the cup to again face Navan in the semi-finals.
The rapids at Clontarf RFC last night put an end to the hopes of the Spent Salmon getting to their destination and annexing the Fox Cup for the first time in the Boyne RFC's history. This was a game to far following their previous weeks heroics which left team manager, Sean Rochford, searching the highways and byways to put 15 fit players on the pitch for the final due to injuries and non availability of some members of the squad.
The adage "Auld Dog For The Hard Road" was never more relevant to describe the players who participated in this match. Not alone because both sides gave their all in a highly enjoyable encounter but, because the conditions were absolutely atrocious. There was a gale force wind driving down the pitch accompanied by driving rain and bitterly cold. This scribe watched the game from the comfort of a nice warm car in his first "Drive In" floodlit rugby match.
Boyne shook off the drubbing they received at the hands of NUIM Barnhall the previous week to finish their season in wonderful style by beating North East rivals Skerries at Shamrock Lodge on Saturday.
Boyne mixed the sublime with the ridiculous in this game and contributed enormously to this humiliating defeat to promotion chasers NUIM Barnhall. Not for the first time during this season have they contributed to their own downfall by displaying indiscipline which incurred the wrath of the referee. During the course of this game they had four players sin binned which left their fellow players with an impossible task of stemming the challenge of the visiting team.
Our Tesco Bag Packing last Thursday raised the grand total of €2,406-46. Boyne Pitches and Habitat for Humanity each receive €1,203-23. Sincere thanks to everyone for your super support and efforts and we've helped two very worthy causes.
