Connacht Under-15 Boys Cup Quarter-Final.

Creggs RFC 39, Ballina RFC 27.

Creggs Under-15’s have qualified for the semi final of the Connacht Under-15 Cup after a very impressive victory over Ballina RFC on last Saturday afternoon in Creggs.

Playing against a considerable wind in the first half, Creggs came flying out of the blocks with super carrying up front from Noah Fallon, Lee Kilcoyne, Michael McAteer and Tomas Tiernan gave Creggs great front foot ball and Cormac Dolan moved the ball wide early and Creggs got in for two tries out wide through Edimar Fimho and Oisin O beirne for a 10 – 0 lead.

Ballina then got themselves into the game, following a few Creggs mistakes from knock ons and forward passes and they got in for 3 unanswered tries to lead 15-10 before Creggs outhalf DJ Hession got in for a crucial score to leave the score 15-15 at half time and Creggs would have been happy with that, playing against the strong breeze in the first half.

In the second half, Creggs stepped up the intensity upfront with Daniel Flynn and Aindriu Oates excellent on their introduction and outhalf DJ Hession was dictating things out the backs with some intelligent kicks and breaks , while outside him Centres Aodhan Looby and Jack Fleming were excellent in attack. Creggs got the next try through Ben Johnson which Looby converted for a 22-15 lead before Ciaran Purcell got in for a try which Looby again converted for a 29-15 lead. Ballina got in for another unconverted try to reduce the Creggs lead to 29-20 before Looby added an excellent long range penalty for a 32-20 lead.

Creggs continued to attack and push Ballina back and Cormac Feeley, Tadg Lyons and Miguel Arthur did well to carry and Eoin Kelly went in for a try which again Looby converted for a 39-20 lead with time running out. Ballina did get in for a late try and converted it to reduce the deficit to 39-27 but they could not deny Creggs victory and Creggs will play Corinthians RFC away in the Cup semi final in 3 weeks.

Creggs Rugby: Lee Kilcoyne, Ben Johnson, Michael McAteer, Noah Fallon, Ciaran Purcell (C), Eoin Kelly, Tomas Tiernan, Cormac Dolan, DJ Hession, Aodhan Looby, Jack Fleming, Josh Adams Verling, Tadg Lyons, Senan Lambe, Edimar Fimho.
