St Enda’s Galway make history and win first ever Schools League match.

St Enda’s Junior Schools team competed in their first ever Connacht Schools Junior League game on Tuesday the 14th of September.  They played Clifden Community School in Clifden.  St Enda’s played with a strong breeze in the first half and scored two very well worked tries to take a 12-0 lead into the break.  Clifden battled back well in the second half and scored a try early on.  Clifden continued to dominate many of the exchanges in the second half but were unable to find that elusive second try due to outstanding defence by St Enda’s.  St Enda’s held on to win 12-5. 
David O’Brien, Connacht Rugby Community Officer for both Schools had this to say.  “It is great to see both teams playing such a high standard of rugby so early on in the season.  I would like to congratulate St Enda’s on behalf of the Connacht Rugby on not just competing in their first ever competitive schools match but also winning it.  Clifden came so close and should take allot of positives from the game.  They have demonstrated that the future of Rugby in Connemara is alive and well”.
