Our under 16 team, Rock-Emmets, played joint league leaders Killeevan this evening, Thursday 12th July, and it was always going to be a difficult test for our lads but in fairness all players worked extremely hard and put in a fantastic effort during the game but unfortunately it was the visitors who emerged victorious on a final score-line Rock-Emmets 2-5 Killeevan 5-4.
The game was played in ideal conditions and Killeevan settled well and got to grips with the game the quickest and played much the better football during the first half and enjoyed a commanding six point advantage at the interval courtesy of two first half goals. The score at the break Rock-Emmets 0-3 Killeevan 2-3.
On the restart we upped our performance and played some lovely football and caused some real problems for the Killeevan defence and managed to close the deficit to a single point. However, while we battled gamely we just couldn’t get that vital point to draw the sides level while Killeevan, on the other hand, soon found their scoring boots and bagged two quick-fire goals towards the end of the game to guarantee the victory.
