Senior Football Championship

We played our final group game last Saturday evening when we took on An Rinn in Stradbally. Having already qualified for the quarter finals a win here would have seen us finish the group in second place. However it was not to be. An Rinn opened the scoring in the 2nd minute and although we managed to take the lead with points from Gavin Nugent 4th and Conor Murray 6th minute it was to be only time during the game that we had the lead. In the rest of the half the only scores we could conjure up were a Ronan Crotty point in the 9th minute and A Jason Curry free in the 24th minute and the same player hitting a penalty off the top of the crossbar which went over the bar in the 29th minute. By this stage however An Rinn were dominant all over the field and went in at half time leading on a scoreline of Rathgormack 0-05 An Rinn 0-11. We needed a good start to the second half to be in with a change but it was An Rinn who were again the sharper. Although Conor Murray managed a point in the 38th minute the only other score that we got in the second half was a Jason Curry free in the 55th minute to leave a final scoreline of Rathgormack 0-07 An Rinn 0-18. Credit to An Rinn they were by far the better team on the day and if we are to progress any further in the Championship a huge improvement will be required. We will face The Nire in the quarter finals in three weeks time.
