Our under 14 footballers were in action in the league campaign when they played Carrickmacross B team on Saturday 25th August. The game was played in slippery underfoot conditions and we began the game brightly and after a tough and competitive first quarter we held a 3-0 to 0-2 advantage.
The early stages of the second quarter saw greater intensity from Carrickmacross and while we had ample possession we were guilty of some poor finishing and were punished by Carrickmacross who notched up 1-2 to leave the score at the midway point 3-1 to 1-4. On the resumption of play Carrickmacross had the better start and went on to control the third quarter and caused plenty of problems for our defence as they upped their game and added an impressive 4-4 to our 0-2 to take a commanding 3-3 to 5-8 lead going into the last quarter.
With their backs to the wall our lads dug deep and to their credit showed great resolve as they took the fight to Carrickmacross and responded with four points. They worked extremely hard and restricted a very strong Carrickmacross side to a solitary point to leave the final score Rockcorry 3-7 Carrickmacross 5-9.
