Senior Football Championship

The Senior team played the latest round of this year’s championship game when they took on Ardmore in Bushy Park. Gavin Nugent opened the scoring in the 2nd minute. Ardmore equalised in the 3rd minute. Gavin Nugent put us back in front in the 4th minute. From here we took control in the scoring stakes when we scored 6 unanswered points by the 20th minute. The scores came from Jason Curry in the 5th minute, Jamie Kirwan 8th minute and Gavin Nugent in the 9th  & 14th  minutes, Conor Walsh in the 12th minute & Jason Curry in the 19th minute.  Ardmore responded with a point in the 21st minute before Gavin Nugent scored his 5th point of the half in the 24th minute.  Ardmore responded with a score of their own before Jason Curry completed the scoring in the first half to leave it a halftime score of Rathgornanck 0-10 Ardmore 0-03. Gavin Nugent opened the scoring in the second half before two quick Ardmore scores reduced the lead to 6 points. Corner forward Ronan Crotty then got on the score sheet in the 40th minute. From here we failed to score for the next 15 minutes and Ardmore with the aid of the wind came back into it. They score 3 unanswered points to set up a nervous finish. Top scorer Gavin Nugent 24th minute and Jason Curry 29th minute completed the Rathgormack scoring and by this stage the lead was down to 3 points but our lads to their credit defended well in the closing stages to close out the game and record a deserved win. The game also saw three young players making their Senior Championship debuts with Dean Kirwan starting and both Liam Mulligan & Conor Murray introduced as substitutes and all contributed to a fine victory. One other statistic from the game was the team that finished the match featured nine U21 players which bodes well for the future.

Team: Brendan Crotty, Michael Crotty, Padraig Larkin, Billy Power, Dean Kirwan, Nigel Skehan, Gerard Kirwan, Cathal Crowch, Ronan Cahill, Conor Walsh (0-01), Michael Curry, Jason Curry (0-04), Ronan Crotty (0-01), Jamie Kirwan (0-01),Gavin Nugent (0-07) Subs Used: Jason Gleeson for Michael Crotty, Liam Mulligan for  Ronan Crotty, Conor Murray for Jamie Kirwan.
