Impressive Under 19’s secure a superb victory

BALLYNAHINCH U-19 5 BANN U-19 48

Bann scrum half Aaron Kennedy opened the scoring with a penalty after five minutes. Ten minutes later the Bann pack were camped on the ‘Hinch line, with captain Adam Kelly scoring the first try of the day.

‘Hinch responded when a lapse in Bann’s concentration allowed them in to score an unconverted try. Within minutes Bann were back in home territory and, from a scrum, Kennedy fed centre Jonny Adams who dived under the posts. Right on half time flanker Richard Graham sprinted 30 metres and popped to Kennedy who scored and converted, taking the interval score to 5-22.

Early in the second half prop Thomas Carlisle barged over to score an unconverted try. From the move of the match winger Kenny Wiltshire made ground before linking with Graham who again found Kennedy with the scoring pass. The referee indicated the match was to end 20 minutes early but Bann weren’t finished as Ben Cross twice crossed the line for individual tries. Kennedy converted both to give him a personal total of 21 points.
