It was a dark and gloomy day down in the CYM grounds Saturday afternoon and with a lack of coaches on the marys sideline it was even gloomier, but someone had to take charge of the situation, the responsibility being laid to rest at the feet of Jimmy, Vinny and Bobby alas even with their combined knowledge of the game the result just didn’t go our way.
Although there never looked to be much between the two teams, after 10 mins CYM crossed our line to score the first try which they were unable to convert then on the 20 min they got a penalty and went for the posts getting the 3 points, they managed to break through our defense again scoring a try and getting the conversion 15-0 to CYM, and then again just before the break to make it 20-0 going into the second half.
We may have been down but in the hearts of our players we certainly weren’t out, with a few inspirational substitutions by the JVB coaching team the second half was all marys, taking the game to CYM marys fought back valiantly scoring a try in the 50th min and converting it and then again in the 70th min unfotunately missing the conversion, we kept fighting to the very end but with the minutes ticking away we were unable to get across their line again with the score ending 20-12 to CYM.
A special mention must go to Tony Flynn for his “efforts” on the wing he brought a lot of heat to the game!!!
