Creggs Under-17’s lose out in Cup last 16


Connacht Under-17 Cup:

Sligo RFC 21, Creggs RFC 19.

Despite a gallant effort from Creggs Under-17’s last Sunday, they bowed out of the Cup away from home to Sligo in Strandhill.
Sligo started strongly and broke from their own 22 to score first under the posts.
Creggs lost full back Ryan O’Keeffe shortly after to injury and were struggling to get into the game. Jack Keegan, returning after a long lay-off made a big impression when he came on and Creggs scored two tries either side of half time one from Rory Callaghan and the other from Keegan, Mark Purcell added one conversation.
With Creggs in the ascendancy and Keegan getting in for his second converted try things were looking good when leading by five points.
However it all changed 15 minutes from the end when Jack Keegan sustained a knee injury and had to go off. Sligo stepped up a gear and scored what proved to be the winning converted try five minutes from time.
The Creggs lads will now go into the Connacht Plate as one of the favourites to lift that title. They play Westport RFC in the Preliminary Round on Sunday week in Creggs, with the winners going on four weeks later (March 8th.) to play a home Quarter-Final v Oughterard RFC.
Training continues on Thursdays at 7pm in Astro Turf in Roscommon. New players always welcome.
Creggs Rugby: Diarmuid Quinn, Micheal Beirne, Jack Keegan, Rory Callaghan, Jack Tucker, Tom Farrell, Eric O Doherty, Kaylem Holian, John McDonnell, Mark Purcell, Aaron Hannon, Lorcan Maher, Aodha Hession, Jack Hanley, Ben Finnerty, Conor Murphy, Aaron Hannon, Luke Divilly, Roddie McGuinness, Tomas O Brien, and Ethan Glennon.
