Portumna 5 Creggs 2nds 0

A try by secondow Brendan Doyle in the ninth minute gave Portumna a hard-earned win over Creggs in Sunday’s Junior 2 League encounter at the Castle Grounds,Portumna. The home team opened brightly and made several incursions deep into Creggs territory before Doyle powered his way over from close range with the defence split apart. Thereafter,Creggs gradually raised the tempo of their game,and created a few chances out wide .Despite operating with limited quality possession, Robbie Daly and Johnny Pontier impressed with some direct running which stretched the Portumna defence.

The secondhalf failed to yield any further scores,with Portumna missing a couple of easy penalty kicks,while sloppy handling led to the breakdown of several promising Creggs moves.
This was Creggs first competitive game at Junior 2 Level for a number of seasons,and all the signs are there that the squad will be capable of performing well in this League.
Graham Curran,David Feeney,Aidan Leech and Bernard Kilcommons also caught the eye,while Portumna had strong performances from Mike Fahy,Niall Finnerty,Mark Hoary and Jonathan Cormican.

Training continues on Tuesdays(8PM) and Fridays( 8.30pm) for Creggs 2nds,new players welcome.
Creggs:Robbie Daly,Graham Curran,David Feeney,Tom Deane,Jonny Pontier,Bernard Kilcommons,David Hoare,: Brian Coady,Enda Tully,Aidan Leech,Alan Glennon,Michael Kelly,Declan Nee,Ross Mugan,Kieran Ryan,Paul Mc Neill,Sean Mc Neill,Ken Loughrey,Luke Meehan.

This distance will be completed as a relay, by teams of up to 21 members aged 10 and upwards. This means a Minimum of 2km per runner/walker. This year funds raised are going toward initiatives run by Tackle Your Feelings, a mental health and well-being programme ran by the Rugby Player Ireland foundation.
If interested, please let us know and once we have numbers competing, we will create a text group where all information will be put up for the next steps to follow.
