U15’s Win in Ballinasloe


U15 A League : Ballinasloe RFC 0 Creggs RFC 23

Creggs U15’s played in round two of the league away to Ballinasloe on Friday night under lights and ran in four tries in a second half blitz to take the points on a scoreline of 23-0. Ballinasloe RFC had the better of possession in the first half and kept things tight with their bigger pack however due to some excellent tackling around the fringes Creggs managed to keep them from progressing into their 22″ and kept them scoreless in this half.

In the second half Creggs gained parity upfront through some excellent work by James Brandon, Danny Arnold, David O Gorman and Brandon Hanmore and out wide Ronan Dowd, Shane Purcell and Niall Cunniffe were now finding holes in the Ballinasloe Defence. Eoghan Coyle directed things well from the base of the scrums and Jason Hoare was also unlucky not to score on a couple of occasions in the corner.

Creggs Scores on the night were tries: James Brandon (2) , Ronan Dowd and Niall Cunniffe, Shane Purcell (Pen)

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.
