Connacht Under-16 League

Ballina RFC 14, Creggs RFC 25.

Creggs Under-16 team guaranteed home Connacht League Semi-Final with a fine display and victory away to Ballina last Sunday morning.

The Creggs forwards carried the game to the home team from early on, with Ciaran Purcell, Noah Fallon, Miguel Arthur prominent in the loose while Aidan Hoare, Eoin Kelly and Tomas Tiernan were excellent from the set piece and in defence.

Creggs got on the scoreboard after eight minutes when good carries by the forwards presented good possession and the ball was moved wide for Ryan Colon to score in the corner.

The lead was short lived however as the home team went ahead 7-5 after 12 minutes when a long kick clearance wasn’t dealt with by Creggs and Ballina scored under the posts.

Creggs regained the lead just before half-time when excellent play from Cormac Dolan at the base of the scrum released Edimar Fimho and Jack Fleming, who again fed Ryan Conlon to go over in the corner for a 10-7 half time lead.

Creggs had the better of the second half and again up front Darragh Gilleran, Ben Johnson, and Cormac Feeley did well, while the scores came from penalty from DJ Hession and tries from Lee Kilcoyne and Ryan Conlon had Creggs leading by 25 points to 7 before a late Ballina try reduced thee deficit to 25-14.

Creggs Rugby: Conor Betts, Josh Adams Verling, Edimar Fimho, Jack Fleming, DJ Hession, Ryan Conlon, Cormac Dolan, Eoin kelly, Ciaran Purcell, Lee Kilcoyne, Aidan Hoare, Noah Fallon, Tomas Tiernan, Senan Lambe, Darragh Gilleran, Ben Johnson, Cormac Feeley.
