On a glorious day in Ballyleague, our 1st year boys finished their season on a high. The 24 man squad travelled on Wednesday last with low expectations after a string of defeats earlier in the year. The day got off to a winning start with a comprehensive victory over Garbally College. The goals flew in as the sun shone in St Faithleachs club grounds. As Dylan Treacy ran riot at one end, Sean Allen was an impenetrable force at the other with a series of top class saves. Castlerea proved to be stiffer competition in the second game but the Roscommon Community College players dug deep to make it two wins out of two. The penultimate group game saw us pitted against Elphin who had some very talented footballers but again the RCC lads came out on top and moved on to the final.
Undefeated Boyle was the opposition this time and it was by far the toughest game of the day. A couple of early wides piled the pressure on and a Boyle penalty before half time was a real sucker punch. Our lads regrouped at half time with some wise words from new manager Mr Patterson. The second half was tense, big tackles flew in as we struggled to deal with the Boyle full forward. Great character was shown to edge in front coming down the home straight and great maturity shown to hold onto the lead. Izidro Ribas was excellent in defence with countless interceptions and tackles. Ryan Dowling and Kilan O'Biren commanded the middle sector impressively all day. Up front Dylan Treacy, captain on the day, really caught the eye. His turn of pace and trademark hand pass dummy was a joy to watch. The score of the day goes to Rory Doolan who kicked a gem when introduced against Garbally on his home ground. But the player of the day goes to Tommy Morris who really stood up in the final when the pressure was on and played some fantastic football throughout the day. The future looks bright for this talented group of players having resolved their managerial issue and we look forward to seeing them compete in the Juvenile Competition next year.
