Ollie’s Bar West Under 21 B Hurling Championship, Rockwell Rovers V Lattin-Cullen in Sean Treacy Park at 7pm on Friday 5 August
Hard luck to our players who lost by 3 points. In a nail biter of a finish with only a few minutes to go Emly were ahead by 3 points when Rockwell Rovers got a free and Colm Moloney scored a great goal to level the match. However on the turn around Emly scored a goal with the last puck of the ball to win the match. Man of the match has to go to goalie Conor O’Brien who played a blinder of a game with some great saves. Well done to all the players especially Colm Moloney who made all the scores. Final score 2-2 to 2-5.
Hard luck to the U14 players who lost to Cashel KC by 4 points last Thursday, 28 July.
This team had a good win over Sologhead Treacy last Saturday evening in Golden. Final score 2-10 to 0-13. At half time Rockwell Rovers were well ahead 1-07 to 0-4. Great defence from Willie Flynn and Robert O’Donnell and some great saves from Michael O’Donnell kept Sologhead at bay in the first half. However a few changes to the Sologhead Treacy team brought a great fight back in the second half. Rockwell had a slow start, a goal from Aidan Barron after 15 minutes got them going and Rockwell Rovers went on to score 3 more points to seal the match by the margin of three points. Great play from Aidan Barron and Stephan Boland in the second half kept Rockwell in the hunt. Generally Rockwell had greater possession but made hard work of turning this possession into scores. Well done to all the players. Team: Michael O’Donnell (goalie), Willie Flynn, Jack Moloney, Mark O’Brien, Robert O’Donnell, Liam Lonergan(0-1), Diarmuid Lonergan, Eoin Byrne, Stephen Boland (0-3), Eoghan Sheehy(1-1), Alan Moloney (0-3), Michael Barron(0-2), Aidan Barron(1-0), Eoin O’Brien, Paddy Keating. Sub made: Michael Healy on for Paddy Keating.
