Connacht Rugby U15 Plate semi-final

25

Oughterard RFC U15’s 12 V 34 Creggs U15’s RFC

Creggs U15’s booked their place in the Connacht plate final with an impressive 34-12 win over Oughterard in Galway on Sunday morning last. Played in overcast but dry conditions the Creggs lads were physically bigger and used their size advantaged to good effect especially the Creggs forwards who were dominant throughout the match.

The away team started stronger and were soon rewarded when Captain Aodah Hession powered over for the first score which Mark Purcell converted. Centre Sam Sullivan was having one of his best games for Creggs powered through for a second try and only excellent and brave defending kept the Oughterard team in the contest. Their efforts were rewarded with a breakaway converted try but the consistent Creggs number 8 Jack Keegan added another try leaving the half time score 17-7 in favour of the away team.

Sullivan added another converted try after the break which ended the game as a contest with Creggs eventually running out comfortable winners 34- 12 and will now play Galwegians in the final at Buccaneers RFC Athlone on Sunday next 24th kick off TBC (see Creggs Facebook page for more info)

Creggs RFC U15’s: Aaron Hannon, Leigh Doyle, Sam Sullivan, Mark Purcell, Aodah Hession, Tom Farrell Roddie McGuinness, Jonathan Whyte, Thomas O Brien, Lorcan Maher, Jack Tucker, Jack Hanley, John McDonnell, Jack Keegan, Eric O Doherty, Evan Comiskey-Hoare, Diarmuid Quinn, Sean Quinn, Karl Healy, Ryan O keeffe, Adam Downey.

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.
