Westport RFC 7 Creggs RFC 14

Creggs U13’s travelled to Westport last Saturday morning in round 4 of the league and came away with a very well deserved 14 – 7 victory.

Creggs Had the much better of the first half and were putting pressure on the Westport defence from the start, up front, Tom Farrell, Adam Downey and Eric O Doherty were making good line breaks and were well supported by Aodha Hession, Jack Hanley, John Why, Evan Comiskey and Ethan Glennon. In the backs David Finneran, Mark Purcell, Jack McGahon and Paddy Gannon were doing well to stretch their opponents

Creggs took the lead after 10 minutes when after a number of close drives Thomas O Brien scored from close in which was converted well by Mark Purcell. Creggs continued to attack and Aodha Hession was unlucky not to score however in trying to clear the ball Eoghan Browne intercepted to score in the corner which was again converted by Mark Purcell Putting Creggs up 14-0 at half time.

The second half Creggs had the better of the play and Sean Tully, Eoin Dowd, Diarmuid Quinn, Sean Quinn, Dylan Cronin, Liam O Beirne, Simon O Beirne and Richard O Beirne all did well on their introduction. Westport did score a breakaway try 5 minutes before the end when they ran the length of the pitch however Creggs closed out the game and it finished on a final score of 14-7 to Creggs.

Creggs: Evan Comiskey, Eric O Doherty, Ethan Glennon, Aodha Hession, Jack Hanley, Diarmuid Quinn, Sean Quinn, Jack McGahon, Thomas O Brien, Tom Farrell, Mark Purcell, Eoghan Browne, Eoin Dowd, Adam Downey, Jack McNally, Sean Tully, James McNeill, David Finneran, Dylan Cronin, Simon O Beirne, Liam O Beirne, Richard O Beirne, Paddy Gannon.

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.

Thanks to all that were available to travel tonight.
