Breaking Ball: April 13th


Rossies’ final date with Kingdom

Roscommon’s Camogie team will be hoping that they can gain promotion to Division 2 of the league when they take on Kerry in the Littlewoods Ireland National Camogie League Division 3 Final on Sunday at 2 pm in Kilmallock, Co. Limerick. A win would ensure that the team would be playing better opposition next year’s league which would benefit the team in the long run.

  When Roscommon and Kerry met earlier in the league the outcome was a low scoring draw and this will be Roscommon’s last competitive game before the championship in July. Hopes will be high that the league campaign can end on a positive note for the side.

‘Nathy’s can have no argument’

 Former St. Nathy’s teacher and manager, John O’Mahony, said the Connacht Post Primary Schools champions could have no complaints following last Saturday’s defeat at the hands of Holy Trinity, Cookstown.

  “Nathy’s failed to get into the game early on and they never settled and the big frustration for them is that they didn’t do themselves justice but there can be no argument today. Holy Trinity are a tremendous team and they had loads of match winners. Their full-forward line was really good. They played a blanket defence but they were in the scoring zone when they needed to be and they had a game plan suited to today.

  “It was good to see Nathy’s getting scores towards the end and when they get over the disappointment of losing they can reflect on a very good campaign. They had great wins against Strokestown to win the Connacht title and also against Lucan in the All-Ireland semi-final but they were certainly second best today,” he concluded.
