Our seniors made the long trip to Omagh and after putting in a great 80+ minutes of rugby had to settle with 2 bonus points after enjoying the better of this game for long periods. And though we went behind to a to an Omagh try after 15 mins we replied with a brace from Taylor Jones Kevin McManus kicked both conversions and we were 14-5 to the good, but we were to concede just on half time to make 14-10. We started the second half well and after Kevin was unlucky with 2 pens 1 coming back of the post we went further ahead with a try from Jack o Grady Davy was just wide with the convert and we were 19-10 in front. We were causing lots of problems for the home side with our retention but with respect to Omagh they have some quality players and they got back into game with a try to make it 19-15 they then went ahead with a 7 pointer to leave it 22-19 but the lads showed great character and once again after great continuity we went ahead with a try from Johnny Cleary Kevin kicked the extras and we were 26-22 in front. And what was a theme throughout the game Omagh scored with a try from broken play to make it 27-26 and it was heartbreak for the lads who had showed great heart and plenty of skill throughout. Our retention was excellent but just a few errors cost us, I’m sure management will be looking to elemenate these for the visit of Bangor next sat in Kilballyowen.a big thanks to all who traveled and to Omagh for their hospitality.
