If ever there was a game that deserved the old classic cliché “it was a game of two halves” then today’s (Saturday 29th March) under 12 encounter between Rockcorry v Sean McDermott’s in the Gerry’s Prepared Veg Spring League Zone G was it.
The game was played in dull and miserable conditions but the day was brightened up with some delightful passages of football as both sides adopted well and did their best with the wet and slippery underfoot conditions. In what was definitely a game of two halves the opening half Sean McDermott’s enjoyed the majority of possession and totally dominated proceedings and pulled away with a comfortable lead, leading 0-1 to 0-11 at the interval.
The half time pep talk seemed to work wonders for our lads because when play resumed we stepped up our intensity, work-rate and execution and notched over some unbelievable scores, a number of which were from very tricky angles, and they kept the pressure on right up to the final whistle and were rewarded with a hard-fought victory, by the narrowest of margins, on a final score-line Rockcorry 0-14 to Sean McDermott’s 0-13.
