A very brave heart-filled performance from Castledaly Rosemount was

almost enough to overthrow the strong Athlone team but the winner

strong finish stole the honours in final minutes. Goalkeeper Jordan

Nugent picked up an injury early in the game but Cathal Dolan capably

stepped between the posts. A thoroughly entertaining game from start

to finish but missed chances proved costly and scores from free kicks

from Kevin Stone Sean Pettit plus scores in play from Ben Foxe and Dan

Heavin had us trailing until a top class goal from play from lively

Lorcan Daly took the lead and ended a nervous first half performance

1-7(10) to Athlone 0-8(8).  The lead could have been greater as a

quality team effort set Dan Heavin through for a well taken goal, but

the referee judged a foul earlier in proceedings and strangely opted

to call back play rather than play advantage.

    Athlone started strongest in second half but scores from Aaron

Nugent and Lorcan Daly from play plus Ben Foxe free kick and Sean

Pettit 45 free kick  retrieved the lead.  A black card for Dan Heavin

meant both teams had been penalised in similar fashion, but Athlone

hit three scores without reply was enough to clinch victory in the

last minute of play. 1-11(14) to 0-15(15)

A great team performance and we can look forward to much much more

from this young group of players in the years ahead.  Well done to the

squad, the management and selectors, and everyone else from Rosemount

and Castledaly involved for a great job all year.
