Roscommon Community College 2-7                      Woodford 5-11

A heart-breaking end to the season for our RCC Senior Boys’ Hurling team who came off second best in their recent clash with Woodford. It was a competitive game with both teams gunning for victory to make it through to the semi-finals.

Right from the off, midfield duo Brian Mannion and Oisín Hynes won the throw in and popped it into Liam Naughten who started the game off with an outstanding point. It was a hard-fought battle throughout the first half, with great defensive displays from Aaron Flaherty in full back and Tommy Morris in centre back. Despite conceding an early goal, RCC responded well with scores coming from Leo Gately, Brian Mannion and Liam Naughten. With the play settling down Woodford began to find their rhythm and added some brilliant scores to their tally before a thunderous strike from Tommy Morris, 30 yards out, left the teams level pegging going into half time with a scoreline of 1-4 to 1-4.

With the second half underway Woodford came out strong hitting a quick goal from play. Woodford continued their strong start into the second half, but Dylan Treacy reached for two remarkable saves in the top corner. Determined not to give up, RCC worked out the ball from Dylan Treacy to Tommy Morris who weaved his way from midfield through the Woodford defence and rifled the ball to the back of the net. Throughout the second half Woodford pinned RCC back by adding a few more points and scored some late goals to extend their lead with no response from the RCC hurlers.


Overall, a resilient performance from the lads but unfortunately it was not their day.
