Skerries keep up hot pursuit of Enniscorthy

by Stephen Findlater

Skerries Rugby Club continued their pursuit if Enniscorthy at the head of the AIL Division 2C table as they eked out a narrow 13-3 win over Sunday’s Well at Holmpatrick.

Defence was the order of the day as they limited the Cork side to just three points, ekeing out a 5-3 half-time lead via captain Kevin McGrath’s try (pictured). A second half penalty from Paul O’Loghlen and a Ross McAuley try in the final minute following a line-out and maul saw them finally get some relief.

The win keeps Skerries in second place in the table on 43 points, just one behind Enniscorthy – 27-19 winners over City of Derry after 11 rounds of matches. The two sides meet on March 21.
