Connacht Junior League

20

Creggs – 36

Buccaneers – 5

With one round of matches remaining, Creggs, following this comprehensive bonus points win over Buccaneers on Sunday, are still in contention for the runners-up spot. On 36 points Creggs are in third place, one point ahead of Dunmore who they face on Sunday. However Ballinasloe in second place on 38 points and away to bottom of the table Ballinrobe look best placed to finish second to Castlebar. Played in biting cold on Sunday this game was over at half time, Buccaneers having conceded six first half tries to Sean Quinn (twice), Ray Cassidy and the entire front row Larry Mannion, Peter Corcoran and Sean Og Higgins getting in on the act. In tricky kicking conditions Creggs added three conversions, one by Noel Flynn and two by Trevor Nee. Turning around 36-0 at the interval Creggs remarkably failed to register again and the only score of the second half was an unconverted Buccaneers try. Creggs were forced into a number of re-shuffles due to injury and the team lost its shape after half time, but in fairness to Buccaneers their second half showing bore no resemblance to their opening 40 minutes and they battled manfully in a lost cause right to the final whistle.

Creggs suffered a sickening last minute loss to Dunmore earlier in the league so irrespective of Ballinasloe this game will have added bite as Creggs seek to avenge their earlier home defeat.

Creggs : B Egan, S Quinn, B Kilcommons, T Callaghan, P Lohan, N Flynn, E Gavin, L Mannion, P Corcoran, S O’Higgins, R Cassidy, A Glennon, T Nee, K Ryan, K Brandon.

Reserves : C Duignan, M Brandon, D Hoare, M Tiley.
