There wasn't much in it at the end but Ashbourne just about did enough to defeat Enniscorthy 12-10 in the Provicincial Towns' Cup at Naas this afternoon.
All the Ashbourne scores came from their boot of their out-half Paul Morris who fired over four penalties.
Considering the amount of possession they had Ashbourne should have won by more but they were unable to translate territorial dominance into scores.
At the break the Wexford side led 10-9 after their winger Ivan Jacob raced clear to score a try.
Enniscorthy also had prop Luke Goff sent off on 29 minutes yet Ashbourne were unable to get the try that would have eased the nerves of their supporters.
