The J2’s started their league campaign with a great win away to Blackrock on Saturday afternoon. Marys scored 29 points to Blackrocks 17, but the score line could have been a lot wider had Marys made the most of possession and territory in the first half. Our scores in the first half came from flanker Louis Burke, crashing over from close range and out half Joey Connelly, who sliced through the rock defence and ran in from 30 meters. Just before half time we let blackrock in for a soft try and they were next to score at the beginning of the first half which certainly woke our lads up. Then with Blackrock having to take risks late in the game ,Jonny Ellis took an intercept pass on the blackrock 22 and ran in under the posts, this score took the stuffing out of rock and we followed this try up with a well taken try from the pack following a catch and drive, the last score earned us the all important bonus point. Next up we have an even harder game against last year’s double winning team Terenure, should be interesting.
