Points shared in away Connacht League draw

13

Tuam 10, Creggs 10.

Tuam scored a dramatic late try deep into additional time to salvage a draw from Saturday’s Junior League game played in perfect conditions at Tuam. There was a long delay prior to the equalising score as a result of an injury sustained by one of the Tuam forwards, which led to the game being held up for over 20 minutes.

When play finally resumed, Tuam pounded the Creggs line, but great defence held them out until the final play of the game yielded a try under the posts which Eoin Kelly converted. Creggs absorbed a lot of pressure in the opening quarter, before taking the lead with a fine try by flanker Alan Brandon, which Mark Brandon converted. Tuam replied with a penalty shortly before halftime to turn around trailing by 7-3.

A Mark Brandon penalty (taking it to 10-3) gave Creggs a boost as the game entered the final quarter, but Tuam dominated the closing stages with their big pack of forwards driving relentlessly towards the try line only to be repelled by some heroic defending by the Creggs team.

Creggs have a home game against Ballinrobe next Sunday, kick-off 2.30pm at The Green. Creggs 2nds are away to NUIG next Sunday. Training continues on Tuesday and Friday evenings in Roscommon, and on Wednesday night in Galway for players based. New players always welcome.

Creggs : Kevin Gavin, Elliot Jennings, Michael Farrell, Tom Callaghan, Chris Duignan, Mark Brandon, Andrew Callaghan, Mike Blighe, Sean Og Higgins, Aidan Leech, Tom Fleming, Kevin Brandon, Ronan Cahill, James Brandon, Alan Brandon, Peter Lohan, Eoghan Farrell, Brian Donoghue, Enda Tully, Barry Egan, Michael Holland.
