Dundalk RFC 10 Port Dara 20
Dundalk RFC Girls U18's suffered defeat to Port Dara at the Mill Road on Saturday, going down 10-20.
The physically stronger visitors - a mixture of Portarlington and Cill Dara - dominated the first-half and went to the break 0-15 in front.
Dundalk were visibly stronger after the break and after a couple of nice moves, Niamh Belton crossed in the corner for a try. The score energised Dundalk, though, with their only genuine attack of the second-half, the away team capitalised to move 20-5 in front.
But Dundalk again came back and repeatedly attacked the opposition line leading to a move by Meadhbh O'Callaghan who supplied ball to Grainne Boyle who crashed over to make it 10-20 at the finish.
