Creggs Under-17’s secured their Connacht Under-17 Division 1 semi final spot with a win over Galway Corinthians RFC in Creggs last Sunday.

Creggs RFC Under-17 team that defeated Sligo, the previous week.

Corinthians came straight out of the blocks in this game and scored a try and convert after only 2 minutes to take a 7-0 lead and it took Creggs a while to settle and never got to build substantial phases due to dropped balls and loose passing early on let Corinthians off the hook when a score looked likely but Creggs did respond with a try from Adam Donnelly in the corner after 12 minutes to reduce the deficit to 7 points to 5 after good work from Conor McNulty and Mark Dowd.

Corinthians were looking dangerous with the ball in hand in the opening half and they got a penalty after 17 minutes to stretch the lead to 10-5 but Creggs again responded with a long range penalty of their own from Mark Purcell just on the stroke of half time to go in losing 10-8.

For the second week in a row, Creggs were far improved in the second half Darragh Kiernan, Luke Divilly, and Shane Connaughton doing well upfront and Sean Trundle at 9 linking well with Cian Glennon, Aaaron Lyons and Darren Gately out the backs and after Corinthians were penalised at the breakdown Mark Purcell stepped forward and kicked another long range penalty for Creggs to take the lead for the first time after 5 minutes of the second period

Creggs were dominant up front and were playing the game in the Corinthians 22″ and Jack Tucker, Ethan Glennon, Tiernan O Sullivan and Ronan Lambe were excellent in open play and in the set piece and after a a number of phases Ciaran Corcoran got in for two tries both of Which Mark Purcell converted for a comfortable lead of 25-10.
