Connacht Girls Under-16 Plate Semi-Final


Creggs RFC 5, Corinthians RFC 39.

Creggs RFC Under-16 Girls lost to Corinthians RFC in the Semi Final of the Connacht Under-16 Girls Plate last Saturday morning in Creggs. This very young Creggs girls team which consisted of a lot of our Under-14 panel and all but 3 who are eligible again next year. Against a very strong Corinthian’s team, the Creggs girls put in a very brave tackling performance.

The difference between the teams was evident in that while the Creggs girls did very well to get into their opponents 22” on three occasions in the opening half, the Corinthians very strong defence held firm to hold out our girls out, while at the other end of the pitch Corinthians made 3 advances into the Creggs 22″ and came away with 3 scores helped by the greater physical strength.

For most of the Creggs girls, it was their first year playing rugby and it was the Under-16’s first time to contest a provincial competition and we look forward to them coming back again next year.

Creggs Rugby: Katie Edwards, Rachel McDonald, Rosin Maher, Nadine Fitzmaurice, Annamay Keegan, Gabrielle Kilcommons, Jean O Boyle, Amy Fitzmaurice, Elaine O’Grady, Eabha Dowd, Sarah Purcell, Emma Mannion, Michaela Burke, Ornella Varale, Fiona Duffy, Aishling Nally, Grace Hanley, and Roisin O Brien.

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.

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.
