Rathnew GAA Club Notes
Rathnew 0:07 v Kiltegan 0:08
Our seniors had a disappointing start to the championship loosing by a point in the first round on Saturday last in Aughrim. It was a slow start to the first half with both teams only scoring 2 points each for the first fifteen minutes. Then Kiltegan pulled away to score four more to leave them leading by six points to two in their favour at the close of the half. The second half started with our lads increasing the pace to come back level on seven points each, considering we had thirteen frees against us in comparison to four in our favour, but we took the foot off the pedal and Kiltegan scored a point from a free with ten minutes to go. Our depleted team, which included 5 minor players from last year, never picked up pace after that and conceded the game on a score line of 0:08 to 0:07, however this has been our first defeat to a club team in the championship since 2008. Scorers on the day were Eddie Doyle 0:04, Edward (turkey) Doyle 0:01, Jodie Merrigan 0:01, James Stafford 0:01.
The Junior A side face Laragh this coming Suday, 24th June, at 1:30pm in Bray in the first round of the championship. We wish them the best of luck in this years campaign.
Also, our Junior B’s take on near neighbors, St. Patrick’s, in the re-fixed league game this Thursday away in Dunbur. See fixtures for times of all matches.
