Creggs Firsts team took on Westport RFC in a league match on the 4g pitch. Conditions were perfect for players if a bit cold for spectators. Creggs started well with an early try by Aidan Leech converted from almost the touchline by Shane Purcell. After giving away a kickable penalty Brian Diffley finished off a forwards break scoring left of the posts converted again by Shane Purcell. Leading 14 -3 it seemed Creggs would pull away but Wesport replied with their own 7 pointer with Creggs having missed some tackles. Another penalty from Westport left it 14-13 at half time to Creggs. In the 2nd half Creggs had the wind behind them and kicked well into the opposition 22.. This resulted in a Kevin Gavin try in the right corner. Creggs leading by 19-13 kicked another great penalty pushing them 9 ahead. With 10 minutes remaining Eoghan Coyle collected a kick ahead and ran in under the post for another 7 with Shane Purcell converting. This was followed by a last ditch try by Westport with the final score 29 - 19. Creggs suffered a number of injuries and had to be subbed out but the replacements were excellent resulting in a solid win. CONGRATS ... See MoreSee Less
