HRC Mountbellew 31-22 Gallen CS

The match took place on the 16th of January. The kick off was scheduled for a 1:00pm start. The match took place in Ferbane pitch. The pitch was dead. The grass a sickly yellow colour but the ground was soft which was ideal for tackling but was a hindrance for the scrums. We started off very poorly and our poor form continued throughout the first half. Gallen scored early on and as soon as they scored our heads dropped. By half time they had an impressive lead on us.
Our team captain Matthew Mills give the team a right going over. He told us to change our attitude and keep our heads up. The game was still in our grasp. We went out in that second half with our heads up high and prepared for battle. We started off the second half well and got stuck in straight away. We pushed hard and managed to score a try. Unfortunately our scrum half who took the conversion missed. We pushed harder and harder and managed to keep scoring which but more and more pressure on Gallen. The opposing team didn’t manage to score at all in the second half. We had a great second half and came back to win 31-22.
