Carrick Seniors edge out Corinthians in titanic battle

by Martin Nee

On Sunday February 14th Carrick seniors took on Corinthians at Carrick RFC grounds on the Castlecarra Road. On bright Sunday afternoon this match had all the intensity of a cup match where two well matches teams battled it out right till the end.
Carrick dominated most exchanges in the first half but some excellent defence by Corinthians prevented Carrick from crossing the whitewash on a number of occasions. Late in the first half Corinthians conceded a penalty inside the 22 which Will Weaver converted to bring the half time score to 3 – 0. Carrick_v_Corinthians_lineout

In the 3rd quarter it was Corinthians who kept Carrick pinned inside their own 22. During this period Carrick conceded 2 kickable penalties which Corinthians duly converted. Carrick’s first trip into the Corinthians 22 of the second half yielded a penalty which Weaver duly slotted over. With the game finely poised at 6 -6 Corinthians took the initiative and were unlucky not to score in the corner with the try being disallowed for a forward pass. However Corinthians were awarded a penalty for a Carrick infringement allowing Corinthians to take the lead. From this point on Carrick pinned Corinthians inside their own half and were unlucky not to score a try with Noel McDermott being held up just left of the posts. The constant pressure took its toll on the Corinthians defence allowing Carrick cross for the only try of the game following a quick penalty on the left which was swept across the back line to cross in the right hand corner. Carrick went on to win 11 -9.

Training continues as normal as Carrick prepare for their next home fixture against Portumna on March 6th.
