Under 18 Girls Interprovincial Series – Sunday, 9th September
Connacht 26-10 Munster
The Connacht Under 18 Girls produced a brilliant performance on Sunday to defeat Munster and make it two wins from two in the Under 18 Girls Interprovincial Series.
With the girls boosted from a late but deserved win over Ulster on the opening weekend, the side were again able to find an additional gear in the closing stages when needed, this time overcoming a late Munster fightback
The opening quarter saw Munster dominate much of the possession and territory, and the pressure eventually told when a quick tap penalty saw them touch down in the corner and a 5-0 lead.
That immediately sparked a resurgence in the Connacht camp, and they got a crucial score just before half-time when Beibhinn Parsons got her first of three tries, showing her lightning pace to set-up an easy conversion opportunity for Meabh Deely which made it 7-5 to Connacht at the break.
Connacht’s under 18 Girls Team conclude their 2018 Interprovincial Series against Leinster on Saturday, 15th September. Kick-off at Barnhall RFC is 2.45pm.
