Creggs beat Castlebar in important League fixture


Connacht Under-16 League

Creggs RFC 22, Castlebar RFC 15.

On Saturday afternoon, Creggs Under-16s hosted Castlebar at The Green for a very entertaining match.
Creggs were by far the dominant side in the first half as tries from Mathew Ryan and and Jordan Kennedy helped the maroon men take the lead. David Gacquin also got his name on the score sheet and the left boot of Matthew Ryan added 2 more points to the Creggs lead straight after.
Castlebar came out with all guns blazing in the second half and managed to score 2 well-earned tries in a short space of time. However it wasn’t enough for the Mayo lads, as the Creggs defence stayed solid for the remainder of the match, coming away from the game victorious.
