Rockcorry 2-5 Currin 0-13

We have seen a lot of good things from our senior team to date but last Saturday evening against Currin they picked the wrong time and place to produce a very lackluster performance as Currin showed a lot more hunger and appetite right from the throw-in to secure the victory on a score-line Rockcorry 2-5 Currin 0-13. In truth, we were totally outclassed from the first minute and for some odd reason we never looked likely to secure the win. While the scoreboard shows a defeat of a couple of points in reality Currin were much the better team, on the day, and before we meet them again in the preliminary round of the intermediate championship a lot of work will be required.  On a glorious sunny evening a very determined Currin side hit us like a tornado as they owned the ball during the first half and raced into an early lead and they comfortably led by 0-2 to 0-7 at the break. Indeed if they had off converted all their scoring opportunities it could have been very embarrassing as they kicked a lot of wides. When the second half resumed both teams exchanged points and by the 16th minute Currin lead by 0-4 to 0-10 and the game looked beyond reach. However, the lads never gave up and battled bravely and incredibly, two minutes later the game was all square, 2-4 to 0-10, as we scored two quick-fire goals, the first from Garry Calvert and the second from Mark McGuirk. At this stage one would have thought the momentum was with us but Currin showed plenty of grit and determination and responded with three points while we only managed to register another point to leave the final score Rockcorry 2-5 Currin 0-13.
