U18 League


Creggs RFC 20 Galwegians RFC 25

Creggs U18.5’s who had already qualified for the semi finals of the U18 league went down to a more committed Galwegians side last Sunday in Creggs by 25 points to 20. Galwegians needs to win to make the top 4 and were very much on top in the first half going in 20 – 3 up, with Creggs only score coming from the boot of Ben McGahon. Creggs made changes in the second half and brought on some players who had been rested for this occasion and although they gave away and early try to Wegians to leave them 25-3 down, they then gained better control of the ball and moved the opposition around the pitch a bit better and had 3 tries themselves from Jason Hoare and Eoghan Coyle bringing the score back to 25-20 with 5 minutes remaining but just ran out of time. Creggs will have the same opposition in the league semi final on Sunday 4th of February and will need to up their intensity for that encounter if they want to reach the league final. Training continues Friday at 8.30pm.

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.
