Portumna 5 Creggs 2nds 0
A try by secondow Brendan Doyle in the ninth minute gave Portumna a hard-earned win over Creggs in Sunday’s Junior 2 League encounter at the Castle Grounds,Portumna. The home team opened brightly and made several incursions deep into Creggs territory before Doyle powered his way over from close range with the defence split apart. Thereafter,Creggs gradually raised the tempo of their game,and created a few chances out wide .Despite operating with limited quality possession, Robbie Daly and Johnny Pontier impressed with some direct running which stretched the Portumna defence.
The secondhalf failed to yield any further scores,with Portumna missing a couple of easy penalty kicks,while sloppy handling led to the breakdown of several promising Creggs moves.
This was Creggs first competitive game at Junior 2 Level for a number of seasons,and all the signs are there that the squad will be capable of performing well in this League.
Graham Curran,David Feeney,Aidan Leech and Bernard Kilcommons also caught the eye,while Portumna had strong performances from Mike Fahy,Niall Finnerty,Mark Hoary and Jonathan Cormican.
Training continues on Tuesdays(8PM) and Fridays( 8.30pm) for Creggs 2nds,new players welcome.
