Creggs Under-13’s Cup win puts them in Quarter-Final


Connacht Under-13 Boys Cup

Creggs RFC 17, Dunmore RFC 10.

The Creggs Under-13 team overcame Dunmore RFC in a very competitive first round of the Connacht Cup in the Green in Creggs on Tuesday evening.

Creggs stormed into an early lead with an excellent breakaway try from John McGuinness which he converted himself. Creggs then kept the game tight throughout the first half, with the forward line in particular playing very well with Leo O’Connor, Sean Allen, Josh Reddington and Jarlath Quinn all shining during this period.

Dunmore pulled back a try after 20 minutes leaving the score line a very tight 7-5 at half time. Indeed, Creggs would have seen themselves trailing at half time, only for an unbelievable try saving tackle from Josh McCormack in the corner.

A John McGuinness penalty pulled Creggs five clear at the start of the second half in what was a very good period for Dunmore. The Creggs defence stood firm, with centres Aaron McAteer, Lochlann Mulry and Eoghan Keavney all playing very well.

A breakaway run from Creggs scrumhalf Jamie Betts saw him covering half the park and allowed the supporting Eoin Keaveney to score under the posts. McGuinness converted to leave the score 17-5.

Dunmore upped their performance at this stage and began to camp in the Creggs half of the field. A Dunmore try brought the score back to 17-10 and Creggs did well to hold Dunmore out for the remainder of the second half.

Creggs now go on to play Buccaneers away in the Quarter Final on Saturday 9th March at 1.30pm..

Creggs Rugby: Oisin Mullen, Jarlath Quinn, Shayne Ward, Leo O’Connor, Josh Reddington, Roan Trundle, Josh McCormack, Sean Allen, Jamie Betts, John McGuinness, Aaron McAteer, Cian Escosio, Lochlann Mulry, Cathal Maloney Luke Dolan, Ruarai Kenny, Eoghan Keavney, and Harry O’Sullivan.

All 3 teams in action this weekend.
First up was U18s who played A training game Friday with Corrib. A very worthwhile exercise and many thanks to our hosts for making it such an enjoyable evening.
Saturday evening brought Creggs Rfc to Tuam where firstly u14s locked horns. Trys from Ailbhe Gannon,Juno Hayes,Doireann Clancy and Ceoladh Lydon were the topping on a fine team performance for this continually improving group. Strong performances too from Kyri Ruane,Louise Seoige,Sarah Smith and Heidi Watson.
Next up was the U16s. This was a cracker of a game where despite the best efforts of captain Hannah Clarke to drag her side into the game Creggs proved too strong on the day. Experienced players Beibhinn Gleeson,Keanah Irons and Charlotte O Grady continually offered themselves in both attack and defence but the powerful relentless ball carrying Creggs girls were deserving victors.

Thanks to all that were available to travel tonight.
