The Roscommon Community College Junior rugby team are safely through to the semi – final of the Connacht Schools Cup after winning their final game of the group stages on Wednesday last against Colaiste na Eachraigh, Athenry. This win meant that the team won all four matches in the group stage and look extremely strong going into the knockout stage of the competition.

The game was played in Creggs rugby ground where the team have already won one game this year. RCC raced out of the blocks and had two tries scored in the first eight minutes through Leon Doyle and Liam Egan. Darragh Kiernan scored another excellent try after great build up work using a rolling maul which left RCC leading by 19 – 0 after seventeen minutes. In the next ten minutes Eoin Farrell and Mark Dwyer both scored super individual tries carrying the ball over fifty metres on both occasions as well as beating numerous defenders. RCC completely dominated the breakdown in this contest with huge enthusiasm and effort being shown by the team to support one another in their carries. In the last play of the first half, Ciaran Corcoran scored the first of his three tries in the game leaving RCC well in control at half time by a score line of 38 – 0.

 

The second half was more evenly balanced, with RCC playing against a strong breeze and Colaiste na Eachraigh putting up a strong fight. Ciaran Corcoran got his second try after ten minutes before Fabio Henrique Oliveira scored a brilliant breakaway try after picking up some loose possession. Ciaran Corcoran scored his final try with five minutes to go before Colaiste na Eachraigh got the try their efforts deserved with the last play of the game. The game concluded on a final score of Roscommon Community College: 55-Colaiste na nEachraigh: 7. Congratulations to our students on a terrific win and for having represented the school with excellent enthusiasm as well as having great respect for their opponents.

RCC 3-7

Castlerea Community School 2-8

RCC won their first game of this year’s campaign in a thrilling encounter played in tough conditions last Friday in Castlerea. Goals from Ryan Conlon, Liam Egan and a cracker from Seán Trundle proved the key scores in the game. RCC did not take the lead until the 57th minute of this game and held on in the final few minutes to record a great win. There were some very positive performances throughout the team with Ciaran Corcoran, Eoin Farrell, Cormac Lavin and Michael Staunton leading the way throughout. Seán Trundle worked tirelessly throughout and got his reward with a well taken goal.

 

RCC will also face St. Cuans and Ballygar in the coming weeks.
