Youngsters ease into Celtic Challenge final




Celtic Challenge (U-17 Hurling) Semi-Final

Roscommon 4-17

Tyrone 3-16

Superb displays from Adam Donnelly and Mark Purcell propelled Roscommon to victory at Annaduff last Saturday in what was an exciting match. A Purcell goal gave the Rossies an early advantage but two goals from Tyrone saw them ahead 2-8 to 1-7 at half-time.

  Tyrone added another goal after half-time but another fine goal from Purcell brought Roscommon back into the game. Then with fourteen minutes to go Adam Donnelly scored a crucial goal for Roscommon and with ten minutes to play the sides were level. But a late scoring burst from Roscommon, which included another Donnelly goal, gave them a hard-fought victory and a place in this weekend’s final.
