East Munster League Titles for Waterpark Under16ís and 18s
Under 18ís League Final
Waterpark 41- Dungarvan 13
Waterpark retained their East Munster title with a victory over Dungarvan in Carrick on Sunday morning. The Ballinakill side started the game brightly with Full back Alex Molloy landing a penalty to opening the scoring. Shortly after, a quick tap penalty under the post from scrum half Jordan OíRegan led to the important opening try of the game, Molloy has no problems with the extras. Dungarvan were next on the scoreboard when Waterpark failed to deal with the restart. OíRegan crossed for this second try of the game after good work from second row Conor Horan at the lineout. Dungarvan crossed for their first try of the game when Waterpark failed to deal with a kick in behind the defence. Halftime score Waterpark 15- Dungarvan 8.
The West Waterford side upped their game early in the second half and scored a well worked try to leave the game in the balance. Waterpark finally woke from the halftime slumber with the introduction of Jack Walsh and Jack Nolan taking the game to Dungarvan. Some big carriers by Walsh and Tom Swift gave the Waterpark backline the quick ball which they required and Molloy crossed for a great team try.
Dungarvan came back on the attack again but big tackles from Jack Nolan and Robbie Walsh killed their momentum. A searing break from Molloy gave Arron Vogelaar his opportunity which he finished well. Robbie Walsh had the final say in the game with another well worked try to give Waterpark a comfortable win.
Under 16ís League final
Waterpark 14- Waterford City Nil
In a very physical encounter Waterpark took the East Munster under 16ís title with victory over local rivals Waterford city last weekend. Waterpark played in to the wind in the first half and held their opponents scoreless with some great defence with the forward matching their bigger opposition. In the second half Waterpark used the elements to their advantage and second Row Harry Donnelly and outhalf Glen Kavanagh scored the home team tries while Kavanagh was successfully with both conversions. Both sides now move on to the Pan Munster competition after Christmas where their paths may cross again.
