Roscommon Community College had a decisive victory in their Connacht Junior Emerging Cup pool match in atrocious conditions at Ballina against St Tiernan’s College Crossmolina on Wednesday, January 13th. RCC were positive from the start and took the game adventurously to Tiernan’s despite the conditions. Impressive handling by Aaron Hannon, Dylan Geraghty and Erik Matik took play deep inside the Tiernan’s 22 and RCC’s backline looked threatening with Jack Donnelly and Conor Lavin to the fore. RCC got the early breakthrough when Hannon went over from close range for a try which was expertly converted by Daire Keenan for a 7-0 lead.
RCC continued to dominate and a strong run by Oisin Campbell should have yielded another try but he was held up short. The pressure was kept up and strong bursts by Simon Leonard and Luca Stratford saw them almost score but Conor Lavin made no mistake left of the posts close to halftime when he dotted down for a try which was again converted by Keenan. The halftime score was RCC 14 - Tiernan’s 0.
With worsening conditions came difficult handling and RCC had a number of strong runs from debutant Diarmuid Treacy and prop Erik Matik. A five metre scrum saw a nice backline move finished off by full back Gareth Delaney who went over for a try. Keenan hit the post with the conversion. The game petered out somewhat after this as it became almost impossible to play any creative rugby. Final score: St Tiernan’s 0 - RCC 19.
RCC: Gareth Delaney, Sean Trundle, Conor Lavin, Jack Donnelly, Diarmuid Treacy, Daire Keenan, Eoghan Farrell, Oisin Campbell, Simon Leonard, Aaron Hannon, Dylan Geraghty (c), Keelan Morris, Erik Matik, Adam Bracken, Luca Stratford.
Subs: Cormac Lavin, Keelan Gallagher, Erik Horvath, Diarmuid Quinn, Evan Croghan, Shane Donoghue, Brandon Maguire

At Roscommon Community we are encouraging students to use Khan Academy to enhance their learning experience with Maths.
Khan Academy provides "a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere" and encourages and supports independent learning. The website features thousands of educational resources, including a personalized learning dashboard. There are over 100,000 practice problems, and over 6,000 mini lectures that are delivered via video tutorials stored on YouTube. The teaching of Maths through this site caters for basic Maths from primary school operations to activities focused on key Leaving Certificate Higher Level topics.
Khan Academy sets challenges for students that re-enforce material that is being taught in class and encourages the student to develop independent learning skills.
A competitive atmosphere is created where students compete to win points and earn much coveted badges through the use of Khan Academy students can take responsibility for their own learning and develop new skills through the medium of technology at a pace that suits each individual student.
