Sean Treacys got the better of Rosegreen 0-6 to 0-4 in this low-scoring game in the AIB West junior A football championship played at Sean Treacy Park on Tuesday night of last week.

On a bad night for football there were few scores as both sets of backs dominated the forwards. Rosegreen led by 0-3 to 0-1 at the interval having had the better of the exchanges, but the meagre results of their efforts were due to some very poor shooting.
