U-15 Report

13

The under 15s suffered a 17-5 defeat away to Ballina on Saturday.Ballina contested league and cup finals at 14s grade last year so it was always going to be a tough assignment.The first ten minutes were even enough until a loose defensive kick from our goal line landed in their full backs lap on our 22 and he ran through to set up a simple try for their right winger,which was not converted.We spent the next 5 minutes in our own half and when yet another poor defensive kick fell into their hands we shipped a converted try to leavt it 12 nil after 20 minutes.However the last 10 minutes of the half saw a lift in performance with Shanagher,White and Diffley making inroads into ther defense,resulting in Diffley getting over for an unconverted try just before the break.

The second half was not in its second minute when clearance kick by Ballina was not dealt with resulting in them hacking on and winning the race for the touch down.The conversion was missed and for the remaining 28 minutes Creggs dominated the match with probably their best performance of the season.Unfortunately despite coming close on four occassions we could not score and even having to play the last quarter with 14 players we did not concede any other score.Colm Maye made an impressice debut with his sharp tackling catching the eye.We play a friendly against St Marys Ballygar on Tuesday night and host Sligo at weekend in the league,day and time to be decided

All 3 teams in action this weekend.
First up was U18s who played A training game Friday with Corrib. A very worthwhile exercise and many thanks to our hosts for making it such an enjoyable evening.
Saturday evening brought Creggs Rfc to Tuam where firstly u14s locked horns. Trys from Ailbhe Gannon,Juno Hayes,Doireann Clancy and Ceoladh Lydon were the topping on a fine team performance for this continually improving group. Strong performances too from Kyri Ruane,Louise Seoige,Sarah Smith and Heidi Watson.
Next up was the U16s. This was a cracker of a game where despite the best efforts of captain Hannah Clarke to drag her side into the game Creggs proved too strong on the day. Experienced players Beibhinn Gleeson,Keanah Irons and Charlotte O Grady continually offered themselves in both attack and defence but the powerful relentless ball carrying Creggs girls were deserving victors.

A great evenings Rugby tonight when Creggs Girls U14 and U16 travelled to play Tuam/Oughterard in Tuam in their first games of the season.

The U14's who had a lot of players playing their first ever game went down to a strong Tuam/Oughterard team but put in a great performance and then the U16"s Girls came out on top in a tough encounter against the same opposition.

Thanks to all that were available to travel tonight.
