Cobh Pirates RFC Juvenile Section




u19L: Fermoy 24-20 Cobh Pirates: After a great performance last week against Mallow, where Pirates won 15-nil; they have to travel to Fermoy this weekend, and very nearly added to the week one league win. Trailing 17-8 coming into the final quater, Pirates worked themselves into a lead going into injury time only to be denied by a late try going down 24-20; Pirates’ try scorers: Mark Dunphy, Noel O’Donovan, John Cotter, with a conv. and pen. from Eoin Geary. Speedy recovery to Eoin who dislocated his shoulder during the game; hope to see you back soon.

u17L: Cobh Pirates 43 – 0 Midleton

The u17s recorded a massive home win over local rivals Midleton. Pirates’ bossed the game from start to finish; never leaving Midleton get into the game. Excellent support play and lines of run from the backline saw a hat-trick from Jack Cahill, with speedy winger Kamil Antemik adding another. Aaron Gilmore & Dillon Sommers added another, with lively out-half, Luke O’Neill having an excellent afternoon from the boot, he added 4 conversions.
