CBS Record Second Victory

14

CBS Roscommon recorded their second successive victory in the Connacht Junior League last Thursday with a 41 – 0 victory over St Muredachs College from Ballina in Creggs last Thursday.

The first half of this game was very even and CBS could count themselves lucky to go in leading 10-0 after two tries from Edward Clinton, one after 15 minutes and the other on the stroke of half time.

The second half was a much more one sided affair and CBS were starting to take control up front and crating spaces out wide and they scored 5 tries during this period from Eoghan Coyle, James Brandon, Brian Diffley and another from Edward Clinton, two of which were converted by Shane Purcell and one was converted by Michael Farrell.

CBS :Dan Butt, John Murray, James Fetherstone, Brian Diffley, Conor McNeill, James McNally, Sean Doorly, Edward Clinton, James Brandon, Shane Purcell, Michael Farrell, Melvin Conteh, Niall Cunniffe, Jason Hoare, Liam Lapina, Cian Gately, Barayl Khan, Reece Gilligan, Darragh Beirne, Eoghan Coyle, Aaron Langan, Hayden O Reilly

Creggs Firsts team took on Westport RFC in a league match on the 4g pitch. Conditions were perfect for players if a bit cold for spectators. Creggs started well with an early try by Aidan Leech converted from almost the touchline by Shane Purcell. After giving away a kickable penalty Brian Diffley finished off a forwards break scoring left of the posts converted again by Shane Purcell. Leading 14 -3 it seemed Creggs would pull away but Wesport replied with their own 7 pointer with Creggs having missed some tackles. Another penalty from Westport left it 14-13 at half time to Creggs. In the 2nd half Creggs had the wind behind them and kicked well into the opposition 22.. This resulted in a Kevin Gavin try in the right corner. Creggs leading by 19-13 kicked another great penalty pushing them 9 ahead. With 10 minutes remaining Eoghan Coyle collected a kick ahead and ran in under the post for another 7 with Shane Purcell converting. This was followed by a last ditch try by Westport with the final score 29 - 19. Creggs suffered a number of injuries and had to be subbed out but the replacements were excellent resulting in a solid win. CONGRATS ... See MoreSee Less
