A draw against Ballina last weekend means Carrick RFC hold on to their position at the top of the league table. The Carrick team travelled to Ballina for the away fixture and despite a raft of injuries during the first half of play against a strong and youthful Mayo side, Carrick came away with a 3-3 draw.

Near-zero temperatures combined with driving rain and a muddy pitch made the fixture one of the more difficult ones Carrick have encountered so far this season, but in spite of the weather Carrick ended the first half of play with a 3-0 lead.

With strong forward units on both teams, the second half was memorable for Carrick’s continuing endeavour in savagely difficult conditions. Carrick had to work hard to keep Ballina from crossing the line, but the strong capability of Carrick’s defence helped them to maintain their lead well into the second half.

The experience and leadership of Carrick’s front row was much in evidence throughout the match but a late penalty for Ballina gave them a chance to find their way back into the game, resulting in a final score of 3-3.
