U17 League South Creggs 19 Dunmore 23

0 20

Creggs U17’s lost their first league match of this campaign at home to Dunmore on Friday night under lights in Creggs.

Creggs began the game very well and took an early lead when a good cross field kick from Brian Cleary was collected by Evan Concar who scored in the corner to give Creggs a 5-0. Dunmore were living off scraps for the early stages but they managed to score a penalty from in front of the posts when Creggs were offside at the breakdown, leaving the score 5-3.

Creggs went back up the field and gained good territory through good work From Eoghan Farrell, Mark Kearney , Tom Oates and Dylan Keavney and when they moved the ball wide Ryan Horan took and excellent line to beat the defence to score in the corner which was converted by Brian Cleary, leaving the score 12-3 after 20 minutes.

Dunmore then started to gain territory in the final 10 minutes of the first half and got their reward when they touched 5 minutes before half time which was converted leaving and scored a penalty just before the break to take a 13-12 half time lead.

Creggs again began the second half well and when a chip over the defence was very well gathered by Brian Kelly, Creggs set the ball up and Brian Cleary saw the space where he kicked into for Evan Concar to run onto and gather to score in the corner, which was again converted by Brian Cleary giving Creggs a 19-13 lead.

Dunmore then got the momentum and like the first half the next two score were theirs when they scored a try which they converted and then a very late penalty secured their victory 23-19.

Creggs: Eoghan Farrell, Mark Kearney, Ross Mugan, Brian Donohoe, Tom Oates, Dylan Keavney, Maurice Buckley, James Regan, Rory Collins, Brian Cleary, Ryan Horan, Rory O Brochalain, John Brennan, David Murray, Evan Concar, Brian Kelly, Barry McDonnell, Jamie Mee.

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.
