Creggs U15s


Creggs U15’s lost their opening league game of the season to a much fancied Corinthians team in Creggs last Sunday morning. Creggs can consider themselves unlucky in this encounter as a try just before half time and another near the end of the game flattered Corinthians.

Creggs began the game well and took the lead through a Shane Purcell penalty after 10 minutes. The game was very even until just before half time when Corinthians took a ball against the head at the scrum and the Creggs defence could not reorganise in time to stop the try and convert and found themselves 7-3 down at half time.

Corinthians extended their lead 10 minutes into the second half when they ran a try into the corner. Creggs now took control of territory and were awarded with a Shane Purcell penalty reducing the lead to 12-6. Creggs continued to attack and when Melvin Conteh picked the ball from the back of the ruck 25 metres out and broke the first tackle he raced clear to touch down leaving the score 12-11 to Corinthians.

Creggs continued to try and move the ball from deep and when they were turned over just outside their 22″ Corinthians scored a converted try to leave the final score Corinthians 19 Creggs 11.

There were some excellent performances on the day, upfront David O Gorman, Melvin Conteh, Brian Maloney and Danny Arnold fronted up to their opponents and out back Eoghan Coyle, Shane Purcell, Dylan Crehan and Niall Cunniffe were busy in both attack and Defence.

Creggs: Aaron Glennon, Brandon Hanmore, Melvin Conteh, Brian Maloney, Adam Finnerty, Dylan Crehan, David O Gorman, Danny Arnold, Eoghan Coyle, Shane Purcell, Jason Hoare, Reece Gilligan, Padraic Gaffey, Michael Conway, Niall Cunniffe, Thomas Hester, Kilian Higgins, Tim Lambe.

Creggs RFC U.13s suffered yet another narrow defeat on Sunday last, this time away to Ballina in Sunday morning last. After conceding an early try from a Ballina scrum we were under real pressure when Brian O Connor put in a tremendous try saving tackle and we managed to force a turn over under our own posts and clear. We finally got a foothold in the opposing half and after a superb attacking scrum and great drives from Matthew Donnelly and Jack Lally the ball was fed to winger Luke Hayes who danced around the despairing Ballina defence to cross the line right on half time. Scoreline Ballina 7. Creggs 5 at the break.
The second half played out like the first with some resolute defence from the Creggs lads. However the line was breached on 12 minutes and now we faced a 7 point deficit. With just 3 minutes remaining and having put in a ferocious defensive display we were rewarded with a try by Michael O Brien who was in the right place at the right time to punish a poor Ballina defensive kick to leave just 2 points between the sides. In the last play of the game though we came unstuck while trying desperately to find the winning score as Ballina scored in the corner to leave the full time score Ballina 17. Creggs 10.
Training continues Wednesday evenings at 7 and we are away to Buccaneers next weekend.
