A team from 6th class played in the final of the Pat Browne cup in Rubgy on Thursday 4th May against St. George’s National School at Balbriggan Rugby Club. It was a thrilling encounter, contested fiercely between two excellent teams. St Gorges took an early lead, getting the first try, which was quickly cancelled out by an excellent run leading to a try, from our own Daniel. The two teams were then locked in battle until half time, following a repeated pattern where St. Georges would go one ahead, only for St. Molaga’s to equalise minutes later. This lead to a score of 5-4 to St. George’s at half time. At the half-time break, joint captains Josh and Conor C could be heard exhorting their team to hold the line and look for an early lead in the second half. Alas, it was not to be so, as St George’s broke through again, securing another try to give them a two-point lead at the start of the second half. St Molaga’s are nothing if not persistent however, and they dug in, to narrow the lead to one point shortly thereafter. St. Molaga’s Naoise played a key role in the centre of the line, tagging a superbly athletic player from St. George’s no less than three times, with tags also being made at key moments by Rian, Stan and Conor H. to prevent St. George’s players from scoring. The second half continued in this way with “tit for tat” tries from each side; St Molaga’s desperately trying to pull ahead with only minutes remaining until half-time. The full-time whistle finally blew, with both teams on even points! After a short break, the teams were informed that an extra 10 minutes would be played, but, it was a “sudden death” situation, with the first team to get a try to be declared winners. St. Molaga’s, being in possession of the ball, had the upper hand. One after the other however, the four tags allowed were used up until the ball passed again to St. Georges! Now they had the upper hand and, with the extraordinary speed and athleticism they had displayed up to that point, many feared that all was lost for St. Molaga’s! However, in a stroke of good luck for St. Molaga’s, St. George’s knocked the ball forward in error, which meant that the ball passed back to St. Molaga’s. The school team were quick to capitalise on St. George’s error and making a determined effort they pushed towards the touchline, with Daniel breaking free at last to score the winning try, his sixth in the final. Tries were also scored on the night by Josh, Colm (assisted by Eoin H) and Killian. Amid scenes of great jubilation, the trophy was presented by Mrs Brown in memory of her husband (Pat Browne – one of the founding members of the club) and St. Molaga’s team showed great sportsmanship in calling for three cheers for their opponents, who indeed were magnanimous in defeat. All in all, the final provided the spectators with an excellent display of rugby and sportsmanship. The Pat Browne trophy has come back to grace the trophy cabinet in St. Molaga’s school after a break of one year, and please God it will be back many times again in the years ahead! St. Molaga’s abú!
