CILL DARA

Mullingar ended this game with 3 points (Draw2 +4 try bonus), bringing their total for the last 3 games of 13 league points from a max possible of 15. Whether it was 2 points missed or 3 points gained will be debated as both sides had chances to win. Mullingar got off to a blistering start with a try by Paul Maxwell in the 3rd minute after he broke a tackle in his own half , chipped ahead and scored in the corner, the conversion being missed. In the 5th min Mullingar had a second try after good backline work and Anthony McGivney touched down again in the corner for a 10-0 lead. The next 20 minutes were scoreless with Cill Dara pressing hard but the Mullingar defence was solid. A few chances came to Mullingar but unfortunately weren`t taken. In the 27th minute there was a Yellow card for a Cill Dara player followed 3 minutes later with a Yellow card for a Mullingar player. Some good play by the visitors resulted in a try which they converted to leave the score at 10-7. However Mullingar got back on the scoreboard with a second try by Paul Maxwell, which again went unconverted to put the score at 15-7 which remained until half time. Soon after the resumption of play a deft grubber by Rangi and quick reaction by Alan Brabazon gave Mullingar a 4th try bonus point. At 22-7 it was looking good for Mullingar but a few errors crept in and Cill Dara kept up the battle for points. A penalty for the visitors reduced the score to 22-10. This penalty was followed 6 minutes later with another penalty for Cill Dara. This penalty hit the post and was knocked on by Mullingar. Failing to react quickly left a Cill Dara player coming in fast to try and touch down. He was put off with a nudge by a Mullingar player, however the referee deemed it illegal and awarded a penalty try to Cill Dara with the Mullingar player receiving a yellow card. At 22-17 the game was now up for grabs and for the next 10 minutes had an extra man. A 3rd try for Cill Dara, with the conversion missed left the score at 22-22. The final 10 minutes were frantic with both side attempting to get the additional score to get that win, however none came and the game ended in the 80th minute. A Cill Dara player unfortunately had a leg break in the final play of the day and we wish him well with the recovery.
