Roscommon CC        1-10     Coláiste Mhuire Ballygar     1-09

Conor Carley pointed with the game entering the dying minutes to keep up RCC’s winning start to the Connacht Championship. It was a cracking game played in Ballygar GAA grounds on the last day of term. The pitch was in immaculate condition considering the rain that fell the night before.

RCC started the game the stronger side and raced into a three nothing lead with perfect points from Kian Mulligan, Josh Lemos and Liam Naughton. Ballygar got a score of their own before Joshua McCormack made it four points to one. From there on, Ballygar dominated large parts of the first half opening up a 6-4 lead. RCC finished the half on top, two frees from Cormac Naughton either side of a Kian Mulligan point left the score 7-6 at half time in favour of RCC.

The second half couldn’t have started better for RCC with Kian Mulligan reacting quickest to finish the ball to the net after it broke around the square. This opened up a four-point lead, but Coláiste Mhuire battled back into the game with Harry Holmes and Rory Coyle catching the eye in particular. Ballygar took the lead after their midfielder rifled the ball into the net. With five minutes left on the clock, RCC were a point down however a Liam Naughton free followed by a great Conor Carley effort nudged RCC in front. There was plenty of time left in the game but heroic defending from Jack Hayes, Ashton Glancy and Conor Morris ensured RCC stayed ahead to maintain their 100% record. Well done lads!
