Connacht Under-14 A League Final:
Corinthians RFC 32 , Creggs RFC 10 .
Creggs U14’s played Corinthians RFC in the U14 league final last Saturday in Corrib RFC grounds in Headford but found the Galway outfit too strong for them on the day. Corinthians couldn’t believe their luck when they scored almost directly from the kick off and after that the Creggs boys were always chasing the game. In the first half Daniel Flynn, Tomas Tiernan, Ciaran Purcell and Lee Kilcoyne were excellent in the forwards in attack and defence against a bigger pack and out wide Ryan Conlon, Oisin O Beirne and Aodhan Looby were trying to run the ball at every opportunity. Creggs only first half score game from a try from Ben Johnson after good word from Edimar Fimho, DJ hession and Michael mcAteer but they found themselves 22-5 down at half time.
Creggs began the second half well and scored through Ben Johnson again to leave the score 22-10 but two very late tries for Corinthians put a seal on the result and they were deserved winners on the day. Creggs subs Daniel O Shaughnessy, Patrick keane , Sean Curley and Andy Quinn did well on their introduction. Creggs may well meet the same opposition in the quarter final of the cup and will hope for better fortunes on the day.
Training for Under-14’s is on every Tuesday at 7pm in the Astro Turf in Roscommon. New players aways welcome.
Separately, Creggs will play Oughterard RFC on February 17th. in the Round One of the Connacht Under-14 Cup.
