HRC Mountbellew 24-3 CBS Roscommon

Junior Development Cup Pool A

The match took place on the 23rd of January. The match was played on Ferbane pitch. The pitch was like a carpet however the weather conditions were harsh. Kick off time was scheduled for half twelve. We scored in the opening minutes which gave us the some fighting spirit. By the end of the first half we were up by a fair amount. The second half couldn’t come fast enough.
During the break the heavens opened. Just after the second half had started Roscommon had scored a long range drop goal. But this did not knock our confidence. We immediately hit back with more attacking rugby and soon enough we were back in our scoring ways. With just a few minutes to go the score was 19-3 and we pushed for one last try. Cathal Laheen the beast ran half the pitch to score a last minute try to seal up the game. The match ended 24-3, a great result for HRC.
