Connacht Girls Under-16 Cup
Creggs 19, Ballina 36.
Creggs Under-16’s girls bowed out of the Cup at the semi-final stage after losing to Ballina on Saturday last in Creggs.
Playing without some of their regulars early on, Ballina shot into an early 19 to nil lead before Creggs got into the game and brought the score back to 24 -19 with 5 minutes remaining and Creggs were playing the game in the Ballina half.
A harsh yellow card put paid to the Creggs girls chances and the visitors scored in two very late tries where they ran the length of the pitch. Well done to Creggs Under-16 Girls who made the league and Cup semi finals this season and with a team comprised of a lot of girls still underage next year and new to the game.
