Our Lady’s Boys Club 25, Creggs 2nd’s 7.
OLBC captured the Junior 2 League title with an impressive win over Creggs in Sunday’s Final, which was played in Tuam. OLBC began impressively and an early try by Johnny Long which Dave Prior converted set them on the road to victory.
Creggs responded with sustained pressure which yielded a couple of penalty chances but kicking conditions were difficult and both attempts were off target.
The scoreline remained at 7 nil to OLBC until the 50th minute when Dave Prior kicked a penalty and he added another penalty shortly afterwards after Creggs strayed offside in midfield.
Creggs continued to carry the fight to OLBC but could not break through their superbly marshalled defence. A Dave Reilly try in the 68th minute finally put the game out of Creggs reach and Colm Flynn added a further try which Dave Prior converted.
However,Creggs battled to the end and winger Luke Meehan crashed through for a late but well deserved try converted by Michael Farrell to complete the scoring.
Both teams have gained promotion to J1C League for next season and OLBC are worthy champions with a strong set of forwards allied to a slick and inventive backline.
Creggs can reflect on an excellent League campaign and will be hoping for a good run in the Ard Na Cregg Cup.
