Corinthians RFC 7 Creggs RFC 14

Creggs U18.5’s travelled to Galway last Saturday morning to play a strong Corinthians outfit coming away with a very tight 14-7 victory.

Corinthians played with the wind in the first half and had the better of the early exchanges however Creggs showed very good discipline in defence with Danny Arnold, Killian Higgins, John Martin and John McDonnell very prominent in this area up front, while Tim Lambe, Shane Purcell and Eoghan Coyle made sure that the midfield area wouldn’t be where their opponents would gain any advantage. Both teams put some great phases of play together in the first half but after 3/4 phases small mistakes in handling or some very good turnovers in defence lifted the pressure an the score remained 0-0 at half time.

Creggs playing with the wind in the second half put on early pressure in the second half but it was Corinthians who took the lead after 12 minutes when Creggs failed to clear their lines from a scrum in their own 22″ and Corithians scored under the posts which they converted for a 7-0 lead.

Creggs responded very well to going behind and some great ball carrying by Mathew Curley, Michael Kelly, Brian Maloney and Adam Finnerty, allowed Aodha Hession to release John martin who offloaded to Tim lambe to score which Shane Purcell converted to draw level. Creggs continued to attack and played the best rugby of the game in the last quarter and went through at least 15 phases of play and were rewarded in the last play of the game when they lay seige to their opponents line with Tom Farrell, Aodha Hession and Aaron Glennon, all just held up short before Danny Arnold dived over which Purcell converted with the last kick to leave the final score 14-7 to Creggs.

The U18.5’s will play a top of the table clash against Ballina RFC next Sunday at 12pm in Creggs. Ballina have had two very impressive victories so far and this will prove to be a tough clash for our lads, so all support would be welcome.

Creggs: Mairtin Quinn, Amuray Duarte, Kaylem Hollian, Eoghan Coyle, Shane Purcell, Tim Lambe, Aodha Hession, Adam Finnerty, John Martin, John McDonnell, Michael Kelly, Killian Higgins, Mathew Curley, Aaron Glennon, Tom Farrell, Eric O Doherty, Eoghan McDonnell, Danny Arnold, Brian Maloney, Aidan Conneely.
