On Tuesday 19th June our under 14 team competed in the final of the championship and unfortunately suffered a heavy defeat against a physically stronger Truagh B side on a score-line Truagh 3-17 Rockcorry 1-2.
The game was played in Drumhowan and conditions were excellent and while we started the game well with an early goal, Truagh responded in style with three unanswered points and by the end of the first quarter the contest was all square as the scoreboard showed Truagh 0-3 Rockcorry 1-0. During the second quarter Truagh seized the initiative and took complete control of the game and notched up an impressive 1-7 without reply to take a commanding 1-10 to 1-0 advantage at the midway point.
The third quarter continued in a similar pattern as the second with Truagh applying all the pressure and stormed further ahead when they scored a further 1-6 to lead by 2-16 to 1-0. To the lads credit they never gave up and showed great spirit and character and were very unlucky not to have registered more scores during the course of the match but in the end it was to be Truagh’s day as they fully deserved the victory on a final score-line Truagh 3-17 Rockcorry 1-2 and congratulations to them on their win.
