Creggs march on to Connacht Under-17 League Final

18

Creggs Rugby 22 – Claremorris RFC 5.

Creggs Under-17’s will play in the Connacht Under-17 League Final after an excellent victory over Claremorris RFC in Ballyhaunis in the semi final last Thursday evening.

Played in showery conditions, this was a game Creggs never looked likely to lose as they took control from early on. Creggs had the better of early territory and should have had a try well before Brian Cleary picked from a 5 metre scrum and went over after 12 minutes. He converted himself to give Creggs a 7-0 lead.

Creggs again missed a couple of opportunities to score before a try from Matthew Brandon after 25 minutes after a lineout in the Claremorris 22″. The final score of the first half came from a penalty by Brian Cleary after Claremorris were penalised at the breakdown. This left the advantage with the Creggs lads at half-time with a scoreline of 15-0.

The second half was a much more even contest and it took Creggs 18 minutes to register a score. After a series of five metre scrums, Dylan Keavney went over the Claremorris try line for the third Creggs try. Brian Cleary landed his second conversion leaving the score 22-0.

Creggs defended their line for periods in the second half and Claremorris did get their just reward for their second half play when they scored a try with the last play of the game. It wasn’t converted so the final score was Creggs Rugby 22 – Claremorris RFC 5.

The final will be played between Monivea RFC and Creggs next Thursday with the time and venue to be decided.

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.
