Rosemount Club Notes

March 11, 2019

Gaa: Like last weekend both our Div 1 and Div 4 teams were out in action in the leagues. On Friday night last we travelled to Moate to take on the home side in round 2 of the ACFL Div 4. On what turned out to be a wet and very windy night, it made playing conditions very difficult. To be fair both both teams served up an entertaining contest for the supporters who braved the elements. A quick start by our lads got us into a two point lead with a fine long range score from Ben Cox the pick of them . Moate played against the wind in the opening half and gradually began to get them selves into the game . An even first half concluded with both sides level 0.05 0.05 each. Both teams up the anti in the second half , trading score after score . Two fine scores from Lorcan Daly paved the way for a right finish . In the end Moate took there chances when they came heading down the home straight and held on for the win by one point 0.10 to 0.09. 

On Sunday morning last years intermediate champions Shandonagh came to the park for round 2 of the ACFL Div 1. Again the weather caused havoc with snow appearing before kick off , but this did not deter our lads in the slightest and they put in an exceptional 60 minutes performance. Some quick fire points by David Tone, Sean Pettit, Theo Watts, and a fortuitous goal saw us take a commanding lead and we never looked back from there on in. We went in at half time 7 points up , and with the wind at our backs we killed the game off in the second half. Further points by Sean Pettit and a well finished goal by Ben Cox sealed the win. Final score Rosemount 2.12 to Shandonagh’s 0.05.
