Connacht U17 Plate


Creggs RFC 29 — Oughterard RFC 17
A strong performance from the home team saw Creggs RFC U17’s through to the Connacht Plate Semi Final.
In perfect conditions for rugby Mark Purcell struck first with a penalty for the Village team after an infringement at the ruck on the 10 meter line. Creggs looked to dominate but somewhat against the run of play the Oughterard full back capitalised on a poor clearance and returned for a try under the posts to lead 7 -3.

The excellent Jack Tucker powered over for Creggs next try and what was turned out to be his first of four tries in a man of the match winning performance from the Creggs and Connacht U16’s star. Thought Oughterard never gave up and stayed in the match with some fine scores the Creggs lads always had enough to see this match over the line and progress to the Plate semi-final against Carrick on Shannon.

Creggs: Diarmuid Quinn, Micheal Beirne, Rory Callaghan, Jack Tucker, Tom Farrell, Eric O Doherty, Kaylem Holian, John McDonnell, Mark Purcell, Aaron Hannon, Lorcan Maher, Aodha Hession, Jack Hanley, , Ben Finnerty.

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.
