Our under 14 footballers maintained their unbeaten start to this year’s league campaign when they secured a comprehensive victory against Oram in the Gerry’s Prepared Veg Division 4 league on Saturday 5th April.
The game was played in mostly dull and overcast conditions but incredibly the standard of play was entertaining with constant passages of football as both sides gave a fine and spirited display of football. After a slow start and a few early let-offs we gradually settled and took a lead that we would never relinquish and after the first fifteen minutes we lead by 1-1 to 2-3. We continued to dominate the match and stretched our advantage to ten points to hold a comfortable lead, leading 1-3 to 3-7 at the half time interval.
The lads certainly stepped up the pace in the third period and laid siege in the Oram half as our play became more direct and we fired over some impressive scores to lead by 1-5 to 7-10. The final quarter was evenly balanced as Oram continued to battle hard for every ball and the game ended Oram 3-6 Rockcorry 8-14.
