Creggs U15’s continued their recent good form by beating Ballinasloe in the U15 League in Creggs last Friday night on a scoreline of 25-14..

Ballinasloe started the game brightly and got the first score if the game after 5 minutes which was converted to give them a 7-0 lead. Creggs then began to play rugby in the opposition territory and were awared with a penalty after 12 minutes which Shane Purcell converted to leave the scoreline 7-3. Creggs continued to press and were unlucky when Niall Cunniffe chased a kick through by Ronan Dowd and had beaten the cover only for the ball to bounce away from him at the last minute when a score looked likely.

Creggs continued to press and after being awarded a scrum 15 metres out they moved the ball from the base of the scrum and created space from a looped pass for James Brandon to run in for a try which Ronan Dowd converted.

In the second half Creggs extended their lead when James Brandon intercepted a pass and ran 50 metres to score which Shane Purcell converted leaving the score 17-7. Creggs followed this quickly by taking another 3 points after Ronan Dowd converted a penalty leaving the score 20-7.

After 17 minutes, Ballinasloe on their only incursion to the Creggs 22″ of the half and used their very big forwards to gain good yardage and they were awarded with a try and conversion to leave the score 20-14.

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.
