Sunday 18th Nov 2012.
Suttonians were holding their Fun day replete with Bouncy castle and a stack of rugby boots and had invited both Boyne and Ratoath Girls for matches. The U14 girls played two games against Suttonians and Ratoath while the U12 girls played against Ratoath. Unlike the previous encounter, we had perfect weather for the matches.
The Boyne Girls made a successful trip up to the Sutton Family fun day. The girls played two matches in total scoring 8 tries altogether. The weather was cold but it wasnt long before the girls warmed up and got going against Ratoath. With some excellent running and passing the girls scored 2 excellent tries in the first half. But Ratoath fought back and in an exciting second half the score finished up to 4 tries each.
Boyne's second match was against the Home team Suttonians, and this too was an exciting game with great passing, handling and defence from both sides. Sutton played extremely well and set up a great game. Boyne came away with another 4 try haul and ended a great day tired but in great spirits.
Boyne U14 girls:Soha Smyth, Tara Lynch, Susie Keogh, Sally Kirk, Niamh Tester, Neasa Early, Louise McCleery, Sydney Sterio, Jenny Guildea
The U12 game started very well for Ratoath with some deft handling and support play. The Boyne girls had a slow start but after the restart in the second half, dug in deep to claw back the deficit. It was another fast moving exciting game. The team is really coming together now. Well done again Girls! Thanks to Rob and all in Sutton for a super day.
Boyne U12 girls: Ellenor, Olivia, Ciara, Penny, Fiona, Gwen, Jessica, Kelly and Mia.
