Corinthians 29 Creggs 14


Corinthians 29 Creggs 14

Corinthians proved too strong for Creggs in Saturday evening’s Junior 1B League fixture at Corinthian Park. Creggs got off to a very positive start with a fine try by Ger Heneghan following a searing break by scrumhalf Chris Duignan . However Corinthians hit back almost immediately with a try and they finished the half strongly with another try to lead 12 -5 at the break. Corinthians continued to dominate and scored a further 2 tries before Creggs captain Tom Callaghan crashed over for a try which Ger Heneghan converted to give his team a boost entering the final quarter. Corinthians were not to be denied and held on for a deserved win despite the best efforts of the Creggs team. Creggs have a home fixture against Ballyhaunis on Saturday next and will be looking to improve on this display . Creggs : F Kelly ,B Egan, M Farrell, T Callaghan,G Heneghan,M Brandon,C Duignan; A Leech,S Higgins,E Farrell,B Donoghue,R Cassidy,P Lohan,K Brandon,M Blighe,B Coady, P Leech,E Tully,

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.
