Ballina 20 Creggs 5

18

Creggs U17 lost to Ballina last Sunday in Ballina in the Quarter Finals of the Connacht U17 Cup. Creggs were missing a number of players due to injury and unavailability and despite the best efforts of the lads who played Ballina proved too strong in the end.

Creggs opened brightly with good drives from Simon Spain, Brian Diffley and Brian Coady. They secured good field position close to the Ballina line but could not get across the line despite great effort by Rory O’Donoghue, Dan Butt and Andrew Mannion. Ballina scored a converted try on their first visit to Creggs territory and added a penalty before some neat interplay between Shane Dowd, Michael Farrell, Robbie Daly and Colm Fallon saw Luke Kelly cross the line for a great try.

Shane Dowd failed to convert and Creggs were back in the game. However, after half-time Ballina added two more unconverted tries and despite the valiant efforts of Conor Gore, Matthew Butt, Alex Syrek and Thyomas O’Byrne and Callum McGee Creggs failed to score for the remainder of the game. Final score Ballina 20 Creggs 5.

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.
