Following last week’s tough defeat against Coleraine the Enniskillen boys were determined to make up for mistakes made. As the whistle blew to start the match the pack advanced up the pitch recycling the ball well and combining with the backs to spread the ball and put the Killicomaine defence under immediate pressure. Within minutes the scoring was opened as second row Nathan Armstrong forced his way through the opposition to score under the posts which was then converted by winger Daniel Johnston. From the restart, further impressive pressure and ball retention allowed captain Paul McConkey to exploit a gap in the defensive line and run over for try number 2. As the half time whistle approached it was then the turn of inside centre Shay Owen to weave his way through the traffic, touch down and covert for a 19-0 lead.
The second half saw the ERGS team become a little less dominant as a slightly fitter Killicomaine side began to stage a comeback. For a period, the ERGS team began to look unorganised and lethargic and it wasn’t long before the visitors managed to score two successive try’s exploiting missed tackles and moving the ball quickly from the breakdown. The Enniskillen boys now had a choice; to try and hold the line in order to keep the visitor out for the remaining 5 minutes OR to muster another attack similar to the first half. Thankfully the boys went for option two and once again convincingly moved their way up the pitch. To round off the scoring hooker Peter Read crashed across the line one minute before final whistle to seal the victory at 24-12.
