Junior Football Championship

We played Kilrossanty in the Semi Final of the Junior Championship in Fraher Field last Sunday evening. Kilrossanty got off to the better start with the first two points before Donal Larkin got us on the scoreboard after 6 mins. Kilrossanty then went two points up again before Donal Larkin after 15 mins pulled it back again. From here Kilrossanty score the next two points before Seanie Lacey scored the last point of the half to leave the score line at halftime Rathgormack 0-03 Kilrossanty 0-05. Having been so poor in the first half we needed a bright start to the second half but it was Kilrossanty who got this when they got the first goal of the game after 33 mins when a long ball into the square wasn’t dealt with to put us 5 points down. Paudie Whelan got one point back before Kilrossanty goaled again. Minor player Gavin Sheehan then got on the score sheet with a goal to give us some hope and further scores were added by Kenny Hassett scoring two frees and John Kirwan scoring with 5 mins to go to leave a point between the teams. We had chances to draw level but could not get the vital score to leave us with a one point defeat. Incredibly the opposition’s only two scores in the second half were the two goals. So from our point of view the defence was sound throughout. From the defence up everyone worked tirelessly but we lacked the cutting edge in terms of getting scores. Credit to all the players on the panel who turned up who on the day but came up a little bit short. However it must be said that there was thirty two names on the panel but on the day only twenty two turned up. This has been on ongoing issue with this team the last two years with a number of underage players refusing to make the step-up to the adult grade. It was the first time the championship was run on a countywide basis and it proved very competitive with some very tight games. The gap between games is maybe something that could be looked at next year. Thanks to the team management team of Denis Curry, Shane Gough and Ryan Roche for their work throughout the year. The club would also like to wish Kilrossanty the best of luck in the County Final.
