06 Oct Bam shows the way in Innishowen
Match Report courtesy of Brian Luke:
The 3s traveled to Donegal in high spirits, optimistic of another good away win. Andrew “Bam Bam” Balmforth finished off great back play with a 50 metre run in for our first try after 5 mins (missed Conversion). Things were looking good, all the pressure coming from CI. However a series of mistakes over the next 25 minutes saw The Men from Carndonagh score 3 unanswered tries (all converted). Ross Hackney received a very unlucky yellow card 5 mins before half time. Captain for the day Ignaccio Plumio (Colin Nelson) rallied the troops with his usual charm and wit.
The second half was a hard fought battle with another 2 tries from the flying machine that is Andrew Balmforth! The score was poised at 21-19 with a minute to go. Super sub Ricky “Rocket” Kerry, coming off the bench despite what seemed like a bout of TB, skipped past the last 3 defenders to score in the corner! CI win 24-21! Man of the Match, had to be 3 try Bam Bam!
