RCC 3-04 Boyle CC 7-03
Our third game of the championship saw us take on Boyle. This was our most competitive game so far and was for the large part our best performance. This game ebbed and flowed until the 55th minute with both teams tied on 3-03 apiece. However, defensive lapses cost us dear and Boyle ran out easy winners in the end. Best for us on the day was Cormac Mee who scored the majority of our scores with two excellent goals and was very dependable from frees. Ethan Hoban, Ryan McNamara and Tyler Kelly were also excellent throughout.
Junior Footballers bounce back!
RCC 4-11 Carrigallen 2-6
Our Junior footballers had a very impressive victory in a thrilling encounter in perfect conditions on Wednesday morning. A display of fabulous football with use of the kick pass proving to be a massive asset to our side. First half goals from Gareth Delaney and Aaron Hannon proved to be crucial in RCC’s victory. A great overall team performance throughout with Diarmuid Treacy rock solid at the back particularly impressing. Ryan Cox at midfield and Simon Leonard up front put in huge displays. That is now two wins from three games for our boys and they will play Drumshambo next week in a crucial tie. Well done lads.
RCC 2-05 Boyle CC 3-11
Our seniors took on a very strong Boyle side in our second last group game of this year’s championship. With the sun at our backs we stormed into a healthy half time lead. However, we faded with 10 to go and conceded 2 late goals which finished the tie as a contest. Best on the day was Adam Finnerty, Daire Keenen, Ryan Cox and Simon Leonard.
Congratulations to Roxboro National School who were the lucky winners of the Sport’s Department challenge that was held on our School Open Day. Following arrangements with the school, some of our Inter-County Gaelic Football players, all teachers at RCC, will take an hour long training session with Roxboro’s school team. The teachers are really looking forward to sharing their knowledge of the game and hopefully giving some tips and advice. Very well done.
