U14 A League Final


U14 A League Final:

Corinthians 10 Creggs 5

Hard luck to the Creggs U14 team who suffered their first defeat of the season losing 10-5 in the final of the U14 A league on Sunday in Castlebar. Creggs were very unlucky early in the game when they missed an early penalty and dropped the ball going over the line after some early pressure. Against the run of play Corinthians went down the pitch and got a penalty which they converted. Straight from the kick off Corinthians scored a try which they converted giving them a 10-0 lead. After this Creggs took over for the rest of the half and scored a try before half time through James Brandon, leaving the half time score 10-5.

The whole of the second half Creggs were camped in the Corinthians half and on another day would have taken their opportunities but they were penalised a few times when only 5 metres from the line and Corinthians defended very well for long periods.

The cup campaign starts the week after next when Creggs have a home tie against Sligo and will hope to build on their excellent season thus far

Creggs: Michael Conroy, Aaron Glennon, Melvin Conteh, David O Gorman, Brian Maloney, Adam Finnerty, James Brandon, Eoghan Coyle, Ronan Dowd, Shane Purcell, Niall Cunniffe, Dylan Jordan, Padraic Gaffey, Cian Gately, Brandon Hanmore, Michael Brandon, Danny Arnold, Niall Hynes, Thomas Hester, Nathan Feeney, Jason Hoare, Callum Fahy.

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.
