Gallen Community School beat Athlone Community College in the final of the Top Oil Junior Development Schools Cup in the Sportsground on Wednesday after a hard fought encounter. Athlone CC had the first chance of the day after just five minutes but the penalty kick bounced off the upright to deny them the score and five minutes later it was Gallen who got the scoreboard ticking when outhalf and captain Sean Flynn rounded the Athlone defence to score wide on the right hand side. Gallen enjoyed the lionshare of possession in the first half but Athlone’s dogged defence and tenacious counter rucking kept them at bay and the first half finished fiver nil to Gallen.
Gallen piled on the pressure in the second half and after a long period camped in the Athlone half crashed over for the second try of the match. The conversion brought the score out to 12-0 and when outhalf Flynn kicked a penalty with five minutes to go there was no coming back for the Athlone side, the final score at the Sportsground Athlone CC 0-15 Gallen CS
