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.

Creggs Firsts team took on Westport RFC in a league match on the 4g pitch. Conditions were perfect for players if a bit cold for spectators. Creggs started well with an early try by Aidan Leech converted from almost the touchline by Shane Purcell. After giving away a kickable penalty Brian Diffley finished off a forwards break scoring left of the posts converted again by Shane Purcell. Leading 14 -3 it seemed Creggs would pull away but Wesport replied with their own 7 pointer with Creggs having missed some tackles. Another penalty from Westport left it 14-13 at half time to Creggs. In the 2nd half Creggs had the wind behind them and kicked well into the opposition 22.. This resulted in a Kevin Gavin try in the right corner. Creggs leading by 19-13 kicked another great penalty pushing them 9 ahead. With 10 minutes remaining Eoghan Coyle collected a kick ahead and ran in under the post for another 7 with Shane Purcell converting. This was followed by a last ditch try by Westport with the final score 29 - 19. Creggs suffered a number of injuries and had to be subbed out but the replacements were excellent resulting in a solid win. CONGRATS ... See MoreSee Less
