Boyne U-17 'B' 26 - Rathoath 10

Boyne U-17 'B' squad got thier Leinster League campaign off to a winning start against local rivals Rathoath.  A bright sunny autumn morning saw the Bryanstown pitch in excellent shape as the teams lined up.  Rathoath got off to a great start scoring a try in the first few minutes to go 5 - 0 up.  Boyne struggled to stay in the game at times, with concentration & work rate in defense not at the required levels.  Slowly however the team started to come in to the game and were rewarded with a converted try to leave the score at half time 7 - 5 to Boyne.

Under 17 'B' 24 - 10 North Meath

Boyne's Under 17's 'B' squad got their North East League campaign off to a great start with a win over North Meath. A glorious sunny autumn morning, with the club preparing for the Presidents gathering & senior matches v NUIM Barnhall saw the 17's 'B' team play on the main pitch which was in magnificent condition.
A slow start saw North Meath attack and a poor choice by Boyne full back to run the ball when outnumbered and lacking support saw the ball turned over and North Meath opened the scoring with a try.
