Westport RFC 33 Creggs RFC 54

Played in High winds last Sunday afternoon , you would have expected a low scoring game, however great credit needs to go out to both teams who produced a highly entertaining game of rugby with 13 tries.

Westport had the better of the first half , playing with the wind and took a lead of 26-12 at half time which got better just after the half time when they ran a quick penalty and scored under the posts for a 33-12 lead. Creggs first half scores came from Aodha Hession and Rory Callaghan Tries and a Mark Purcell Conversion

Creggs first half was riddled with mistakes in the strong breeze but they settled in the second half and cut their mistakes considerably and built their phases and very good ball carrying from Ethan Glennon ,Thomas O Brien, Jack Tucker and Adam Donnelly produced good ball for the Creggs halfbacks Hession and Purcell to start to dictate the game and in the set piece John McDonnell was excellent in his line out takes. In the backs Ben Finnerty , Kaylem Hollian and Aaron Hannon were very good at recycling the ball and Creggs scored tries through Conor McNulty, Aodha Hession and Tom Farrell with touchline conversions from Mark Purcell brought the scores level at 33-33.

Creggs continued to attack but errors crept back into their game when they got near the Westport line and on 3 occasions they were turned over when a score looked likely. A super individual try in the corner by Ryan O Keefe and another touchline conversion from Mark Purcell gave Creggs the lead for the first time and seemed to settle the nerves and further tries from Aodha Hession and Tom Farrell followed which were converted by Purcell secured the league points.

Creggs: Rhoddie McGuinness, Ryan O Keefe, Kaylem Hollian, Aaron hannon, Ben Finnerty, Mark Purcell, Aodha Hession, Jack Tucker, Rory Callaghan, John McDonnell, Adam Donnelly, Tom Farrell, Thomas O Brien, Eric O Doherty, Ethan Glennon, Diarmuid Quinn, Conor Murphy, Conor McNulty, Micheal Beirne.
