Creggs U16’s


Creggs RFC 26 Sligo RFC 0

Creggs RFC U16’s played their final group league Game at home to Sligo RFC last Sunday morning in Creggs and won by a scoreline of 26-0. Having already secured a home semi final spot prior to this game, it was Sligo who were hoping to upset the home team and secure a semi final place themselves however they found a Creggs team in no mood to do them any favours on the day. Creggs had the better up front and Danny Arnold, Brian Maloney, David O Gorman, John Martin and Daire Byrne carried the ball very well and created space out wide which Eoghan Coyle, Shane Purcell, James Brandon and Adam Canny made the most of to gain territory. Creggs opened the scoring after 12 minutes when Melvin Conteh touched down, Ronan Dowd added a penalty and a drop goal later the the first half to leave the half time score 11-0. Shane Purcell added a penalty early in the second half before further tries from James Brandon and another from Melvin Conteh which Ronan Dowd converted leaving the final score Creggs 26 Sligo Rfc 0. Creggs will play a home semi final against Corinthians RFC next weekend. Creggs U16 action

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.
