Athleague of their own: Champions off to a flier!

Senior Championship

Defending county champions Athleague have secured two wins out of two games played. It is still all to be played for with no team secure for a county final place with a break next weekend for clubs and the third round fixed for Saturday 24th September. That will see Athleague face Oran in one game and in the other game Four Roads will take on St. Dominics. 

  Four-Roads 1-7 Oran 1-2: Scores were hard to come by and just a point separated the teams at half-time. The second half saw Four Roads take a six point lead after a Lizzie Glennon goal but Oran fought back and got a goal of their own to reduce the lead. However, Four Roads finished the stronger and although they were guilty of a number of wides they held out for a crucial win.

  Athleague 4-7 St. Dominic’s 1-6: The game ebbed and flowed with both sides trading points from placed balls. St. Dominic’s pegged a goal back of their own when a Susan Spillane high ball into the Athleague square deceived all and ended up in the back of the net. Just before half-time, Athleague scored another, this time from the stick of Niamh Farrell. Athleague got back to it again half-way through the second half and goals from Rebecca Brennan and Niamh Farrell and points from Annette McGeeney sealed victory.

  U-16 Championship: Following round 5 of ‘Support Croí, Heart Smart’ U-16 Championship, Pádraig Pearses and Roscommon Gaels are top of the table, each having won their respective games over Tulsk and Athleague at the weekend.  Four Roads and St. Dominic’s are just behind them.

  Roscommon U-14s: Next weekend will see our U-14 squad take the road to Dublin where they will participate in the All-Ireland blitz day. The girls have been coached all summer by David Bolger, Marie Glennon, John Casey and assisted on occasions by Development Officer Sharon Kavanagh. We thank all the coaches and wish them and the squad the very best of luck in what is always a very enjoyable weekend.
