Rockwell/Rosegreen played another round of the West Feile Hurling on Wednesday evening last in New Inn. The opposition on this occasion were Aherlow/ Lattin.
This was a winner take all game as both sides needed a victory to ensure qualification for the semi- finals. The teams had not met previously so an entertaining game was anticipated. Rockwell / Rosegreen got off to the better start landing some nice early scores, Aherlow / Lattin responded well with a twenty metre free ending up in the back of the Rockwell / Rosegreen net, two well taken goals by Tom Dowling saw Rockwell / Rosegreen lead at the break by 2-3 to 1-2. On resumption Rockwell / Rosegreen continued to dominate and eventually ran out winners on by of 3-7 to 1-3. This was a good all round team performance and it is clear that this group of players are on the up and up. They have now qualified for the West Feile semi-final where they will come up against Golden /Kilfeacle.
Rockwell/Rosegreen - Brian Og O’Dwyer, Eoghan McLoughlin, Fergus English, Christopher Geraghty, John Marnane, Andrew Moloney (0-1), Brian Flavin, Harry Tobin (0-1), Mark Ryan, Eoin McSweeney, Ashane Sanuja Wiesinghe, Mark Downey (0-3), Charlie Costello (0-1), Tom Dowling (2-0), Conor O’Brien, Tom Tobin, Patrick Hickey (1-1), Cormac Freir, Diarmuid English and Finbarr English.
Cashel Rugby Club
Outing to Portlaoise
The U/10’s took part in the National Festival in Portlaoise last Saturday Apri 26th where they were pitted against teams from Mallow, Galway Corinthians, Kildare and Belfast Harlequins. In the opening game against Mallow our boys came out with all guns blazing and were victorious by three tries to nil.
Next up it was the turn of Corinthians, this was a more physical game and even thought Cashel put up a spirited performance in the end they had to settle for second best, going down by two tries to one.
The third game against Kildare, proved to be a different story, tired and with full belly’s after a feed of Burgers and Chips had slowed them down the result was never in doubt and they lost 4-0. So much for an army marching on its stomach.
Redemption was the order of the day for the final game against Belfast Harlequins. With something to prove after the no show v Kildare they fought tooth and nail from start to finish. They were much better than the 2-0 win suggests Well done to one and all!
