Platinum Tanks RFC Crawley Cup Group 2

Drumhowan 1-15 Cremartin 1-7

Played in awful conditions at Páirc Mhic Eoin last Sunday the 4th of October the Reserves with  a very good second half performance  secured their second win of the Crawley Cup  defeating Cremartin  by eight points.

Cremartin started brightly with a goal and a point, the goal coming from a catalogue of errors in the Drumhowan defence due to the slippery and wet underfoot conditions.  When Drumhowan eventually got going it was down to 3 frees from the boots of David Caulfield, Micheal Duffy and Joseph Duffy.  Cremartin and Michael Atkinson exchanged points to leave the scoreline  1-2 to 0-4  at the water break.  Cremartin in the second quarter kept their noses in front with points despite losing Martin Mc Nally to a serious injury. This unsettled them a little  and  just before the half time whistle  David Caulfield  from  a free levelled it to leave the half time score Drumhowan 0-8  Cremartin 1-5

The second half started slowly and due to worsening weather conditions  neither side could get on the scoresheet   that was until Micheal Duffy pointed and very shortly afterwards Joseph Duffy hit Drumhowan’s  solitary goal to leave four points in it. After this Drumhowan  took control of the game and Cremartin only managed a total of two point in the remainder of the half as the weather  improved   Drumhowan kicked  another six points finishing off with a Ciarán Duffy free to leave the full time score  Drumhowan 1-15 and Cremartin 1-7. Next week it’s an away trip to Oram
