Blues shame the Shamrocks

THE Kendall Blues took to the field at the Kendall Showground last Saturday after some very heavy rain made for a muddy game for the Blues to take on the Beechwood Shamrocks.

Tyler Smith started the match by scoring the first try of the day in the 6th minute. Pearce's conversion attempt was unsuccessful. Brock Blanch then followed suit and crossed the line a short time later on the opposite side of the field. Pearce's conversion was successful.

It wasn't long until the Blues broke the Beechwood defence again and Arnold Turnbull passed the ball to Jacob Bignell who crossed the line for the first time this season. Pearce's conversion was successful.

A short time later Blanch crossed the line again. Pearce's conversion attempt was unsuccessful and this saw the half time score 20 - 0.

The Blues returned from half time and Brandon Plater made his way down the sideline and scored in the corner just four minutes into the second half. Pearce's conversion attempt from the sideline was unsuccessful.

It was then only another two minutes until Robert Smith made his was across the line for the Blues. Pearce's conversion was successful taking the score to 30 - 0 and this would be the final score.

In wet conditions the ball was hard to control and it went back and forth between both teams.

The Blues defended well to keep the Shamrocks scoreless.

The Blues will be away for the rest of the season and travel to Harrington this week to take on the Hurricanes.

The field is on Hogan Street in Harrington, kick off is 2:30pm and the Blues hope to see all of supporters there.
