Presentation College, Athenry kept their double hopes alive in the Sportsground today (Wednesday) when they were crowned Connacht Senior Emerging Schools Champions.

Two late tries finally brought the Galway side over the line after Jesus & Mary Enniscrone looked to have secured the win.

Athenry got a converted try in the opening three minutes before Enniscrone hit back.  Despite having Niall Carden sin binned, tries for Jarlath McMahon and Bradley Nealon allowed the Sligo side take a 12-7 lead.

The teams were level again when Athenry got their second try but Enniscrone led 17-12 at half-time with McMahon getting over again.

And even though Athenry took back the initiative thanks to their third try two minutes after the restart, McMahon completed his hat-trick to give Enniscrone a 22-19 advantage entering the final quarter.

But with the win in their backs, Athenry wouldn’t be denied and ran in two late tries to take the win.  Their Junior Development team face St. Jarlath’s, Tuam in the last game of the day as they hope to clinch the double.
