GAEL CHOLAISTE KILDARE TOWN CS
History was made in Carlow Rugby club last Thursday, October 25 when the Gael Choláiste Ceatherlach played Kildare community school in the school's first rugby game. It was the kildare school who opened the scoring through their hard working forwards with a converted try.
Conor Crowley replying for the home side to leave the half time score 5 points to 7.
The Kildare side dominated the opening period of the second half with two converted trys to leave GCC with a hill to climb. They regrouped and scored a great team try through Brenden Crowley which was converted by Peter Hennessey and it was all to play for when Fionnaun Burke blocked an attempted clearance and regathered the ball to score under the posts with Burke adding the two points himself.
The closing minutes saw GCC try in vain for the winning score and with the last play they were held up over the line by some stout Kildare defence, from the ensuing scrum Hennessey's drop goal went inches wide. A great day's rugby was had by both teams with several players on both teams getting their first game of rugby.
