Bruff U17’s earned a hard fought victory overcoming a resilient Tralee team in Kilballyowen on Thursday night. With the weather gods smiling on Kilballyowen Bruff set about the match with their usual determination and were 5-0 up early on when Gavin Reidy crossed the white line. The conversion was missed and Bruff went on to cough up 3 try scoring chances in the first 15 minutes of the game. Tralee then settled into the game and gave Bruff plenty of problems particularly at the breakdown over the next 50 mins or so. Incredibly Reidy’s try proved to be the only score of the game as Bruff prevailed yet again. The defensive display was particularly impressive from the hosts. Our next game is thomond away on Sunday 13th.
