Creggs has impressive away win in Under-16 Cup


Connacht Under-16 Cup

Castlebar RFC 0, Creggs RFC 18.

The Creggs Under-16 boys overcame a stern test in Castlebar in the Connacht Under-16 Cup on Saturday last.

Two first half tries from Edimar Filho and Tyrese Etete gave the away side a lead at half-time.

Creggs then soaked up a lot of pressure but the defence held strong thanks in particular to great tackling and counter rucking from Ruairi O’Brien, Jordan Kennedy and Aodán Kelly with Shane Connaughton immense throughout.

Darren Gately added a penalty mid-way through the second half and Matthew Ryan completed the scoring with a well worked blind side move.

Creggs Rugby: M Kilcommons, R Colleran, C Purcell, E Filho, M Ryan, D Gately, M Dowd, R O’Brien, M Hoey, A Gorman, J Kennedy, A Kelly, F Quinn, T Etete, S Connaughton, S O’Roarke, J Murray, E Smyth, R Tiernan, L Gregory

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.
