Second win for U18 Girls in Cup Group stages

Creggs RFC U18 girls played their second game in the group stages of the U18 girls cup tonight in miserable conditions in Creggs coming out on top 31-12 in a tighter encounter than the scoreline suggests.

These teams had met in the league Final back at the end of January and are very familiar with each other and it was Sligo that took the lead early on with a try after 7 Minutes..Creggs were playing with the wind and eventually took a grip on the game with 2 x tries from Sarah Purcell and one from Shauna Walsh and 3 conversions from Siofra Hession for a 21-5 half time lead.

The start of the second half was a very even affair with Creggs getting another try from Sarah Purcell before Sligo got in for a try, which was converted and the scoreline read 26-12 after 15 minutes of the second half.

Sligo continued to attack and were held short a few times and were unfortunate to drop the ball when a score looked likely in the corner before Sarah Purcell got in for a try late to finish the scoring 31-12.
