U17 League.

0 22

Galwegians 0 Creggs 3.

It took a penalty 10 minutes from time from Brian Cleary to separate Galwegians and Creggs in the opening round of the U17 League in Galway on Sunday morning.

In a game played in beautiful conditions this games was played at high tempo with two very committed sides. While both sides had their periods where they dominated territory it was the defence that won out anytime a score seemed imminent. The breakdown was an area where both sides targeted turnover ball and were successful time after time to stop the opposition from scoring. For Creggs Ross Mugan, Barry McDonnell, Maurice Buckley, James Regan and Dylan Keavney were prominent in the loose, while both Tom Oates and Brian Donohue made sure of a steady platform from the lineout.

Creggs Defence had to be at their best to stop a good Galwegians back line and Rory Collins, Ryan Horan, Diarmuid Cunniffe and Rory O Brochalain never relented in their tackling duties while also showed well in attack while Brian Kelly and Brian Cleary made great decisions and kicked well to keep the Creggs forwards on the front foot. Creggs used their full squad and David Murray, Jamie Mee, John Brennan and Brian Collins did well on their introduction.

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.
