Dunne on the double as CBS triumph

Connacht Colleges Juvenile ‘B’ Football Final: Roscommon CBS 3-9 St. Attracta’s Tubbercurry 3-7

Roscommon CBS scored a notable win in this Juvenile ‘B’ football final played at the Connacht Centre of Excellence in Ballyhaunis last Friday.  

  This was a very well contested game and Roscommon CBS showed great character to hold out for a narrow but deserved win.

  Roscommon CBS were ahead early on with Charlie Carthy scoring a fine goal but the Sligo lads were on level terms at the break (1-5 apiece) after a well-taken goal from Rian Moylan.

  Roscommon CBS pulled clear in the third quarter aided by two great goals from Michael Dunne and by the 52nd minute Roscommon CBS led by 3-9 to 1-6.

  Tubbercurry staged a late rally and goals from Aaron Perry and Sean Kerrigan set up a grandstand finish. But the Roscommon lads had done enough to hold out for a great win.

Roscommon CBS: M Purcell; J O’Malley, J Browne, N Hickey; C Walsh, J Lohan (0-1), E Kane; R King (0-1), K Doyle (0-2); C McCormack (0-1), J Fitzpatrick, A Hession; C Carthy (1-2), L Ormsby (0-2), M Dunne (2-0). Subs: J McDonnell for O’Malley, S McLoughin for Hickey, Walker for Hession.
