With the development league well and truly in the rear-view mirror, Bohs welcomed St. Senan’s to Annacotty in the first League-League game of the season …
Both teams gave it their best shot and no doubt were optimistic for the day.
Bohs however proved worthy winners with fine run-catch-pass on show. The photos included show the boys working hard to support in attack and get across in defence.
There were great carries from the pack and nice back line on show.
The ever-speedy Cormac Devitt bagged a brace while Ben O’Connell picked from the back of the ruck and identifying the space ran it in from just inside the 10m.
Michael Landers continues to demonstrate fine strong direct carrying and got his just reward while a fine offload from Brendan Morrissey at centre and a support line to match from Kevin Griffin at second five-eighths saw young Griffin run over the paint to score.
While the tries came from both the pack and the lads in the yard, it was the overall support running which was satisfying, ably demonstrated by the positive contributions from the likes of Stephen Bissette and Cathal Carey.
To note, the finishers came on to have their say and in summary a satisfactory performance from the match day twenty-two.
There are workons of course but for now, and to quote one the Coaches, “Enjoy the Victory Lads.”
