U17 Leinster league Mullingar 0 Boyne 24

Boyne U 17's travelled to Mullingar to open their Leinster League campaign in what was a very tough opening fixture.The first half progressed well for the Boyne team who dominated their opposition in the scrums but did not take advantage of this on the score front going in at half time 0-0 all credit going to the Mullingar defence for keeping the visitors out.The Boyne team came out in the second half determined to make their forward dominance count and what a second half performance gaining great field position giving their explosive backs the time required to put the game beyond doubt with superb tries from Jack Mitchell, Alex Holden,John Callan and no8 Barry Callan, Mitchell securing a" man of the match" performance from full back .This was a great team performance with a lot of the hard work in practice coming to the fore well done lads! The Boyne team was Tadhg O'Reilly, Sean Flynn,Luke O'Callaghan,Alex Yore,John McGinley,Killian Grant,Andrew Dalton,Andrew Pryor,Harry Evans,Ryan Summersby, Jack Mitchell,Alex Holden,Aaron Rock,Shane Brodigan,Daniel Gray replacements Barry Callan For Killian Grant ,Gavin Daly for Sean Flynn, John Callan for Aaron Rock, Josh Lyons for Andrew Pryor, Ola Ogunkoya for Barry Callan,Stephen Duffy for Shane Brodigan,Matthew Flanagan for Harry Evans.
