Rock Sarsfields have too much guile for Latton
We made the short journey to O’Rahilly Park to play Latton in the GRM minor football league division 2 competition and the lads played some impressive football and showed real passion during the game to secure victory on a score-line Latton 1-4 Rock Sarsfields 1-11.
We started the game brightly and completely dominated the opening stages and scored some lovely points (Mark McGuirk 0-2, Christopher Kilpatrick 0-1 and Keelan Clerkin 0-1) to open up four point lead with six minutes of the game played. Latton registered their first score on the 11th minute when they converted a free-kick but as the half progressed we continued to apply our dominance and stretched our lead on the 18th minute when Mark McGuirk scored a magnificent goal and Marcartan Kierans added another point on the 25th minute. Latton slotted over additional points to leave the half time score 0-4 to 1-5.
When the second half resumed we continued to control the game and extended our advantage when we fired over a brace of points from Mark McGuirk 0-1, John Greenan 0-1, Lorcan Smyth 0-2 (free-kicks) and Christopher Kilpatrick 0-1 to lead by 0-4 to 1-10 after eighteen minutes of play. Latton staged a mini revival towards the end of the game and we were somewhat fortunate on the 24th minute when a blistering shot at our goals rebounded off the crossbar and we thankfully we were able to clear the danger. However, Latton were awarded a penalty three minutes later which they duly converted and we completed the scoring on the 29th minute when Gerard Graham came forward and scored a fine point to leave the final score Latton 1-4 Rock Sarsfields 1-11. Well done lads and keep up the good work.
