Roscrea 8 Gorey 10

Roscrea 8 Gorey 10

Roscrea put on a great display against league leaders Gorey on Sunday last but in the end they had to be content with a losing bonus point.

Despite the bad conditions the pitch was excellent. However the storm force winds and rain made playing conditions very difficult. David Carney was first over the line with an early try but Gorey battled back well. After a surprise miss in front of the post Aaron Carroll made amends with a penalty before the break to leave Roscrea with an eight point to nil lead at half time.

Gorey came back in the second half and scored under the posts followed by an easy conversion. A penalty for Gorey sealed a two point win later in the game. Roscrea but up a great performance but couldn’t find a way through a very tough Gorey defense in the second half.
