U14 Cup

74

Creggs U14’s travelled to Castlebar last Sunday morning to take on Westport RFC in the second round of the U14 cup and came away with a 28-0 victory. Played in difficult wet conditions, Creggs blitzed their opponents with two early tries through Aaron Lyons who outpaced the cover to score, both tries were converted by Mark Purcell to give Creggs an early 14-0 lead. Up front Creggs were in the ascendancy in the loose with Lorcan Maher, Jack Tucker, Luke Divilly, Ethan Glennon and Ben Finnerty doing well early on. After 18 minutes Creggs extended the lead when Mark Purcell kicked through and although it looked like the Westport winger had the ball under control Andrew Naughton pounced on the ball to score in the corner giving Creggs a 19-0 half time lead.

In the second half the conditions deteriorated further however Creggs kept their opponents under pressure and in their own half with smart kicking from Jack Crehan, Naoise Coyle and Darren Gately and upfront Diarmuid Fahy, Ronan Lambe and Rory Callaghan were doing well with ball in hand. The scores in the second half came from 3 penalties from the boot of Mark Purcell, which stretched the lead out to 28-0 which ended up as the final score. This week Creggs u14’s will train in Creggs at 7pm Friday. The cup quarter final is set for two weeks time

Creggs: Dara Kiernan, Lorcan Maher, Luke Divilly, Rory Callaghan, Cian Glennon, Aaron Lyons, Jack Crehan, Andrew Naughton, Diarmuid Fahy, Jack Tucker, Louis McCaffrey, Ben Finnerty, Ronan Lambe, Ethan Glennon, Mark Purcell, Naoise Coyle, James Rocke, Darren Gately.

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.
