Creggs Rugby 53, Galwegians RFC 0. Connacht Under-14 Plate Quarter-Final.

After a big win in the first round over NUIG RFC, Creggs Under-14s continued successfully in their quest through the Connacht Under-14 Plate on Sunday last, beating Galweigans comprehensively, with the scoreboard reading 53-0 in Creggs’ favour.

Creggs started off the game strongly with Edimar Filho and Frankie Quinn excelling in counter-rucking winning valuable possession for their side. Silky hands from the Creggs backline led by out-half Paddy Downey ensured
Creggs got well-earned points on the board in the early stages of the match.

Michael McAteer, Luke Butt and Jordan Kennedy worked very hard around the fringes of the ruck and Robert Colleran put on an excellent display of kicking throughout the game. James Murray rucked well while Mark Kilcommons, James Connelly, Briain Costello and Darren Gately tackled bravely to keep Galweigans out of scoring range.

Tries from Edimar Filho, Shane Connaughton, Ciaran Purcell, Tyrese Etete and Ruairi O’Brien helped Creggs on their way to the Connacht Semi-Final.

Creggs: Ruairi O’Brien, Luke Butt, Michael McAteer, Jordan Kennedy, Robert Colleran, Edimar Filho, Frankie Quinn, Shane Connaughton, Ciaran Purcell, Paddy Downey, Tyrese Etete, Mark Kilcommons, James Connelly, Briain Costello, Darren Gately, Dara Hughes, and James Murray.

Anthony Gorman, Mark Dowd and Sean O’ Rourke were sidelined with injuries picked up at Gaelic in the week previous to this match. We wish them a speedy recovery.

There is no confirmation of the Under-13’s opposition and fixture for the Semi-Final at the time writing. Players will be notified at training.
