July 11, 2018

Round Towers will host an Under 14 tournament this Bank Holiday Monday

Drumconrath / Meath Hill 5-8 (23)  St Ultans Cortown Gaels / Round Towers 2-19 (25)

St Ultans Cortown Gaels / Round Towers under 16 team travelled to Meath Hill on Tuesday evening and put in a very gutsy performance to bring home the points in this Division 2 Summer League fixture. 

The away side started brightly leading after the first quarter 1-6 to 0-3 and kept up the good work coming in at half time leading 1-12 to 0-5. 

The home team came back strong in the second half scoring five second half goals, a statistic which could have been greater only from some great work from keeper David Monaghan. 

The manner in which the team in green and white fought back after going behind was admirable and that never say die attitude is something that all players and their parents should be proud of. 

With some great individual scoring performances from Paudie Rennicks, Michael Hilliard and Adam Rogers the entire panel contributed to this victory with their work ethic and willingness to sacrifice their individual performances for the benefit of the team. 

St Ultans Cortown Gaels / Round Towers: David Monaghan, David Bennett, Mikie Rennicks, Sean Og Yore (0-1), James McGovern, Shane Campbell, Luca Brady, Paudie Rennicks (2-1), Ruairi Buchanan (0-1), Michael Hilliard (0-6), Luke Galligan (0-2), Adam Rogers (0-8),Harry Reilly, Eoghan Heary, Kian Oliver, Harry Staunton, Peter McElroy

Next fixture Tuesday 17th July @ 7.30pm v St Patrick's in Sean Newman Park, Bohermeen.
