Creggs U14’s lost their first league game of the year away to monivea last friday night under lights. Creggs too the lead when a kick ahead by Mark Purcell was grounded by Aaron Lyons after 7 minutes. The first Monivea score came with the last play of the first half when Creggs made a break up field but were turned over at the breakdown and Monivea ran in a try under the posts which they converted for a 7-5 half time lead. The second half both teams tried to run the ball but both defences were very well drilled and Creggs had a sustained period of pressure near the Monivea line in the last 5 minutes of the game and from a 5 metre penalty Jack Tucker was just held up Short and recycled the ball but Creggs knocked on the ball near the line and a long kick upfield resulted in a try for Monivea with the last play.

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.
