Creggs RFC 5 Corinthians RFC 26

Creggs Under-14’s suffered their first Connacht Under-14 A League game loss of the season to Corinthians of Galway last Saturday afternoon in Creggs, coming out on the wrong side of a 26-5 loss.
Corinthians travelled with a bigger squad and were the better team in the early stages scoring two very early tries, both of which were converted to give them a 14-0 lead.
Up front for Creggs Edimar Fimho, Ciaran Purcell, Lee Kilcoyne and Tomas Tiernan were showing very well but the bigger Corinthians back line were finding gaps early on but Daniel O Shaugnessy and Senan Lambe did well in defence to stop them.
Creggs managed to get into the game and were very unfortunate just before half time that Corinthains got a bit of luck to get in for another try to take a 21-0 lead.
Creggs game improved in the second half and it was a very even game with Michael McAteer, Aidan Hoare, and Daniel Flynn prominent up front and out the backs Jack Fleming, Aodhan Looby and Tadg Lyons were taking on the ball and were now threatening their opponents line but after 15 Minutes Corinthians broke away for a try to lead 26-0.
Creggs did manage a try through Brian McLoughlin after great work from Cormac Dolan and Daniel Hughes. Creggs Under-14’s remain joint top of the Connacht League and have no game next week but will travel to Ballinaslloe RFC in two weeks in a must win game.

All 3 teams in action this weekend.
First up was U18s who played A training game Friday with Corrib. A very worthwhile exercise and many thanks to our hosts for making it such an enjoyable evening.
Saturday evening brought Creggs Rfc to Tuam where firstly u14s locked horns. Trys from Ailbhe Gannon,Juno Hayes,Doireann Clancy and Ceoladh Lydon were the topping on a fine team performance for this continually improving group. Strong performances too from Kyri Ruane,Louise Seoige,Sarah Smith and Heidi Watson.
Next up was the U16s. This was a cracker of a game where despite the best efforts of captain Hannah Clarke to drag her side into the game Creggs proved too strong on the day. Experienced players Beibhinn Gleeson,Keanah Irons and Charlotte O Grady continually offered themselves in both attack and defence but the powerful relentless ball carrying Creggs girls were deserving victors.

A great evenings Rugby tonight when Creggs Girls U14 and U16 travelled to play Tuam/Oughterard in Tuam in their first games of the season.

The U14's who had a lot of players playing their first ever game went down to a strong Tuam/Oughterard team but put in a great performance and then the U16"s Girls came out on top in a tough encounter against the same opposition.

Thanks to all that were available to travel tonight.
