Rosemount club notes

September 09, 2019

Gaa: We took The Downs in the Quarter Final of the Senior Championship last Saturday evening in Cusack Park. Played in perfect conditions , we began the game taking a one point to no score lead. From then on , we struggled for the remainder of the first half and The Downs took over then kicking some long range points as well as hitting two goals. The lads kept plugging away , and two fine points from Deccie Mullen clawed back the lead somewhat but it was an uphill battle after that. The lads to there credit emerged the second half and began to try and get themselves back in the game. A penalty and a free from Sean Pettit and a point from Plunkett Maxwell gained us some momentum. Ben Cox then entered the fray and a quick fire 1.01 from play from him left just two points between the teams heading into the last five minutes. Chances came and went for both sides , but ultimately we ran out of time in the end, and The Downs took the win on a score of 2.09 to 2.07. We would like to thank the players and management for there efforts during the year. 


Best wishes to Declan Slevin in the Paracyling World Championships next week. Good luck Declan.
