Creggs Under-14 Girls deliver great home Cup win
Creggs RFC 29, Westport/Corrib RFCs 24.
Our U14 girls welcomed Westport/Corrib RFCs to Creggs for the first round of the Connacht Under-14 Cup last Saturday. Creggs came out on top of a spirited game with a last minute try score by Sadie Davaney.
Captain Ciara Downey got two tries in the game, one in either half. Out-half Grace Shaughnessy scored a try & kicked two conversions on a very wet and windy day.
The game provided end to end rugby action with both sets of supporters enjoying the game. Emily Kelly got over the line for Creggs with 10 minutes left in the game then Westport/ Corrib scored under the post with four minutes to play. The score was now 24-24 .
Creggs regained the ball after the restart and worked there way up the field showing great heart & determination. Creggs got the ball to Sadie Davaney who drove through the Westport/Corrib defence to score the winner.
The game finished 29-24. As always it was a team effort with all squad members getting time on the field. Their next Cup game is in two weeks, playing away to Loughrea RFC.
Creggs Under-15 Boys win home friendly
Creggs RFC 27, Loughrea RFC 5.
Creggs Under-15 Boys played a friendly last Sunday morning against Loughrea RFC in Creggs. The game was switched switched as a result of Loughrea pitch being unplayable.
The Creggs side, who were coached last Thursday night by Connacht youth coach, Conor Galvin, started very quickly by scoring a try within 3 minutes. Two more tries were scored by 20 minutes and they led by 15-0 at half time.
The second half was similar with another try and conversion within 10 minutes of the start.
Loughrea to their credit started moving the ball well and scored their own try, before Creggs got their fifth try to win by 27-5. Well done both teams.
This group are building for their Cup campaign which starts in March. There are good numbers at training are making great improvements. Keep it up boys !!
