In Division 2 of the National League Donie Smith 0-4 (2 frees), Enda Smith 1-0 (penalty) and Cian McKeon 0-2 (1 free) all played influential parts in Roscommon’s win over Kildare, on a score line of 2-11 to 0-13. All roads now lead to Dr. Hyde Park next Sunday where Roscommon play Westmeath at 2pm.
The Lannon Motors Boyle U-16 Division 1 team lost out to Strokestown in the league in the Abbey Park on Sunday. Both teams exchanged points in the early stage of the first half but a penalty converted by Strokestown, and two fortuitous goals conceded by Boyle, left the half time score at 3-06 to 0-07 to the visitors. The second half started as did the first, with both teams trading points. Boyle were unlucky to be reduced to 14 players midway through the half but didn’t let the numerical disadvantage tell and they dominated for long periods after the sending off, missing a penalty in the process. Final score: 0-13 to 3-12.
Panel: Oran Henry, Tommy Walsh, Joseph Coyle, Oisin McDermott, Conor Kelly, Daniel Casey, Mark Halligan, David Beirne, David Flanagan, Gavin O’Connor, Luke McGrath, Andrew McGee, Niall O’Donnell, Nicholas Callan, Mark Dwyer, Shay Noone, Karl McKeon and Cathal McKeon.
