Rosemount club notes

August 06, 2019

Gaa: We travelled to Moate last Saturday night to take on Castledaly in the SFC. Heavy rain ah hour before throw in made conditions extremely difficult. To there credit both sides left it all in the field in what was a hugely physical battle over the hour. We started to settle early and points from Sean Pettit and David Tone saw us take the lead. 

The game was slow to get going, again with playing conditions and a doggid Castledaly side making it very difficult for us to break them down. Castledaly responded with a few scores they got from frees, which was keeping them in the game. As half time approached a well worked move resulted in David Tone finishing to the back of the net. This left us one point ahead at half time. We started the second half at a frantic pace, with scores from Theo Watts and Ben Cox. Castledaly kept in touch, both sides introduced subs and went all out for the final ten minutes. We were a point ahead with normal time up when Plunkett Maxwell kicked a long range point from play to seal the win for us by two points. This leaves us with six points and top of the table with two games remaining. Final score: Rosemount 1.11, Castledaly 0.12. Well done lads on a very gutsy performance. 


Condolences: The club were saddened to hear of the death of Larry Dunican and Lily Kelly in the past ten days. Lilly was Rosemount through and through , and a true lady.
