An understrength Creggs 2nds squad were overrun in the final quarter by Ballina in Sunday’s Junior 2 League game played at Creggs Road,Ballina .
The playing conditions were very difficult for both sides,but nevertheless the game was lively and keenly contested until Ballina’s superior power proved decisive in the closing stages.

Creggs opened the scoring with a well-struck penalty by Dara Gilleran in the 8th minute,but Ballina hit back from the restart with a try by flanker Joe Melvin. Centre Tiernan Egan rounded off a good handling move to stretch Ballina’s advantage with a try under the posts,which outhalf Craig Culkin converted. David Twomey added another try for the home team just after halftime but Creggs hit back with some very spirited play,which yielded an excellent try by captain Enda Tully,with Gilleran converting.

The underfoot conditions were very testing by this stage,and Ballina ran in two further tries as Creggs were stretched to breaking point by the impressive Ballina backline.

Dara Gilleran,Eoghan Cahill,David Naughton,Damien Nolan and Enda Tully impressed for a Creggs side,which competed to the finish,despite being hampered by the absence of several key players.

Training continues on Wednesday and Friday (8pm) this week. New players welcome.

Creggs : Dara Gilleran,Daragh Thomas, James Ryan,Luke Meehan,Conor Gore,Stephen Kilcommons,David Hoare : Brian Coady,Peter Heavey,Eoghan Cahill,David Naughton,Declan Nee,Graham Curran,Enda Tully, Damien Nolan,Ross Mugan.
