Our under 12 footballers returned to action on Saturday 29th June when they played host to Cremartin in the Gerry’s Prepared Veg league competition. The lads battled hard and got off to a very encouraging start and capitalised on a couple of passing errors from Cremartin to put some lovely scores on the board and after a very entertaining twenty minutes we built up an eleven point lead, leading 3-9 to 1-4 at the midway stage.
When the game resumed both sides continued to play some high quality football and traded scores early during the second half. However, as the half unfolded our excellent work-rate was rewarded with a couple of match winning goals as we secured our first victory in the league campaign on a final score-line Rockcorry 6-11 Cremartin 2-8.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable game and while we were never behind in the match Cremartin pushed us all the way. Great credit must go to both sets of players for a terrific performance as they all demonstrated great heart and skill throughout the match. Well done boys and girls and keep up the good work.
