Birr U-17's 27 - 5 Boyne U-17's

Boyne U17s suffered their first defeat in the Leinster League against a good and well organised Birr team. Birr were the fresher of the two teams and Boyne seem to be suffering the effects of 2 hour bus journey. Birr had all the pressure in the first half but it was Boyne who struck first with a well taken break away try, scored by Ronan Fitzpatrick. Joe Sweeney forced the turn over and Shane Dowling kicked long. The follow up by Adam Byrne and Ronan Fitzpatrick cause Birr to error and Boyne scored the opening try. The conversion was narrowly missed by Jack Keogh.

Boyne U17 55 - 21 Dundalk U17

Boyne U17s win their first Leinster League against local rivals Dundalk, 55 - 21. Boyne first half performance laid the foundation for this victory, by scoring 5 unanswered tries to nil. The game was very open and Boyne played the 15 man rugby better with both wingers scoring good tries. The first half tries were scored by Shane Dowling, Joe Sweeney, Paddy Winters, Adam Byrne and Jack Keogh. Dundalk were stunned and failed to register any points in the first half.
