Creggs RFC 28, Connemara RFC 27.
Creggs continued their great run in the Cawley Cup after edging out rivals Connemara by the narrowest of margins (28-27) in a thrilling encounter at the Green last Sunday.
Great team tries from man-of-match contenders, forward’s Brian Donoghue and Brian Diffley, as well a third from centre Mark Purcell lead the way. Shane Purcell’s shooting boot accounted for the balance.
Creggs will now play Castlebar in the Bank of Ireland Cawley Cup Final. That game will be played in mid-December. Having won the last two Cawley Cups, Creggs are going for three-in-a-row in this cup competition.
The First team now have two weekends off, resuming the weekend after with a top of the table home League match v Westport RFC. It is hoped to have a few injured players back fit and in contention by that weekend.
