Creggs RFC U.13s suffered yet another narrow defeat on Sunday last, this time away to Ballina in Sunday morning last. After conceding an early try from a Ballina scrum we were under real pressure when Brian O Connor put in a tremendous try saving tackle and we managed to force a turn over under our own posts and clear. We finally got a foothold in the opposing half and after a superb attacking scrum and great drives from Matthew Donnelly and Jack Lally the ball was fed to winger Luke Hayes who danced around the despairing Ballina defence to cross the line right on half time. Scoreline Ballina 7. Creggs 5 at the break.
The second half played out like the first with some resolute defence from the Creggs lads. However the line was breached on 12 minutes and now we faced a 7 point deficit. With just 3 minutes remaining and having put in a ferocious defensive display we were rewarded with a try by Michael O Brien who was in the right place at the right time to punish a poor Ballina defensive kick to leave just 2 points between the sides. In the last play of the game though we came unstuck while trying desperately to find the winning score as Ballina scored in the corner to leave the full time score Ballina 17. Creggs 10.
Training continues Wednesday evenings at 7 and we are away to Buccaneers next weekend.
