Super away win for Creggs Under-15’s in Galway

26

Connacht Under-15 League

Galwegians RFC 22, Creggs RFC 25,

We witnessed an outstanding comeback last Saturday in Galway when Creggs Under-15 boys came back from 22 – 6 down at half time. In fact, Creggs keep their opponents scoreless in the second half and manage to rack up 19 unanswered points to take the spoils in this Connacht Division 1 League game.
In the first half Galwegians got in for an early try and although Creggs rallied with two penalties from the boot of DJ Hession. In truth it was first half to forget for the lads as from 4 kick offs, the home side managed to turn them over and go in for 4 tries in that half.
The second half was a completely different game, the Creggs forwards now were taking the ball on at pace and making yards. Good use of the ball from the half backs Cormac Dolan and DJ Hession kept the Galwegians defence moving around.
The comeback started after only five minutes of the second half when after great work from Eoin Kelly, Ben Johnson, Michael McAteer and Aidan Hoare., Ciaran Purcell got in for a well taken try.
Creggs continued to attack and moved the ball between backs and forwards and Tomas Tiernan, Daniel Flynn, and Lee Kilcoyne were very prominent in the pack while Edimar Fimho and Jack Fleming at centre were a threat.
Indeed, it was from one of these great links between backs and forwards that Ciaran Purcell got in for his second try that Oisin O’Beirne excellently converted to reduce the deficit to 22-18 with still 12 minutes remaining.
Creggs started to believe the comeback was possible now and more good work out wide by Senan Lambe was rewarded after the ball was carried on by the forwards and the Creggs backs moved the ball wide for Josh Verling to go over in the corner which again Oisin O Beirne converted to give Creggs a 25-22 lead with 4 minutes remaining.
Creggs had to defend for the last few minutes and again to a man, each stuck to their task and they held out for valuable Connacht League points in their pursuit of a semi final place. There next game is v Sligo RFC on Saturday week in Creggs.

Creggs Rugby: Oisin O’Beirne, Josh Verling, Edimar Fimho, Jack Fleming, Senan Lambe, DJ Hession, Cormac Dolan, Ciaran Purcell, Daniel Flynn, Eoin Kelly, Ben Johnson, Lee Kilcoyne, Michael McAteer, Aindriu Oates, Aidan Hoare, Cormac Feeley, Jimmy Hoey, Tomas Tiernan, and Kayk Oliveira.
