Our under 14 footballers got back to winning ways in the Gerry’s Prepared Veg Division 4 league competition with a stunning 3-18 to 5-6 victory against Toome on Monday 5th May. The game was played at Pairc Naomh Mhuire and the first quarter was evenly contested with both sides creating exciting football and at the end of the first period we trailed by 0-4 to 1-2. Our lads upped the intensity levels during the second period and worked extremely hard for each other and produced some lovely attacking football and were rewarded with some delightful scores to lead by 0-11 to 1-4 at the midway stage.
There was a torrential shower of rain during the third quarter, which made conditions far from ideal but it did not deter both sides serving up an entertaining contest in the most trying of circumstances. The lads kept their foot on the gas and continued to put in a good effort and after forty five minutes we maintained a healthy advantage leading 2-13 to 2-6. The final quarter was end to end and at times heart stopping stuff as Toome applied a lot of early pressure and scored three goals. However, we withstood Toome’s mighty effort with an impressive 1-5 to secure the spoils on a final score-line Rockcorry 3-18 Toome 5-6.
Team : Darragh Dillon, Conor Clerkin, Sean Markey, Dylan McCollum, Gerry Larmer, Ryan Lynch, Kyle Brannigan, Pauric O’Brien, Caolan McPhillips, Shane Greenan, Aaron Smyth, Stephen Nesbitt.
