U16: Sligo take home the spoils

Ballina 13 – Sligo 22

Jim Davies on his way to scoring Sligo’s third try

Sligo U16s travelled to Attymass on Saturday last to play Ballina in the Connacht A League. On another glorious day for rugby Ballina began the stronger and dominated the first half leading 8 to 3 going in at half time.

Sligo eventually started to compete in the second half scoring two tries by scrum half Cathal Feely and prop Damian Cullen, both converted by Daire Cregg. Ballina responded with another try but missed the conversion. Sligo’s full back Jim Davies then went over for Sligo’s third try with a well worked sequence of play started with a turnover by winger Louie Scott. The game finished with a well deserved victory for the Sligo boys with a final score of 13 to 22.

Next up for Sligo is a home game against Creggs and an away game against Loughrea in the development league.
