Hurlers book final spot!



Allianz NHL Division 3A (Round 4)

Roscommon 1-26

Tyrone 1-11

Roscommon hurlers have reached the Allianz National Hurling league Division 3A final by virtue of this impressive 15 point win against Tyrone at Dr. Hyde Park last Sunday. Roscommon have one group game left this coming weekend against Lancashire in Abbotstown (Co. Dublin) and then they will face either Armagh or Monaghan in the final.

  Roscommon, with Cathal Dolan unerring from frees and play, and Cillian Egan, Pat Nolan and Pádraig Kelly all excellent, were in control all through and led by 0-15 to 0-7 at half-time.

  Tyrone did improve after the break and with fifteen minutes to go they scored a rather lucky goal through sub Ben Gormley but once Cathal Dolan blasted home for Roscommon’s only goal in the 64th minute the home side coasted to victory.

  It has been an excellent league campaign for Roscommon thus far and they have ticked every box in their quest for promotion. It would be nice to put a league title on the table prior to the championship. Well done to all concerned.

Roscommon: Noel Fallon; Alan Moore, Pat Nolan, Paul Kenny; Hugh Rooney (0-1), Eamon Flanagan, Conor Coyle (0-1); Darragh Heavey, Shane Curley (0-2); Cathal Dolan (1-11), Cillian Egan (0-5), Pádraig Kelly (0-4); Gearoid Egan, Conor Mulry (0-1), Eamon Kenny (0-1). Subs: Mike Kellehan for Mulry (60), Peter Kellehan for Rooney (61), Johnny Murray for E Kenny (63), J Donnelly for G Egan (72), Conor Coyle For C Egan (72).
