Creggs has impressive away win in Under-16 Cup


Connacht Under-16 Cup

Castlebar RFC 0, Creggs RFC 18.

The Creggs Under-16 boys overcame a stern test in Castlebar in the Connacht Under-16 Cup on Saturday last.

Two first half tries from Edimar Filho and Tyrese Etete gave the away side a lead at half-time.

Creggs then soaked up a lot of pressure but the defence held strong thanks in particular to great tackling and counter rucking from Ruairi O’Brien, Jordan Kennedy and Aodán Kelly with Shane Connaughton immense throughout.

Darren Gately added a penalty mid-way through the second half and Matthew Ryan completed the scoring with a well worked blind side move.

Creggs Rugby: M Kilcommons, R Colleran, C Purcell, E Filho, M Ryan, D Gately, M Dowd, R O’Brien, M Hoey, A Gorman, J Kennedy, A Kelly, F Quinn, T Etete, S Connaughton, S O’Roarke, J Murray, E Smyth, R Tiernan, L Gregory
