Junior Cowdy match report - Rockmount Vs Nuremore

Match Result First Round Junior Cowdy Rockmount  4 1/2 Nuremore 3 1/2

 

Rockmount secured an impressive win against a very strong Nuremore side on Sunday 16 May to progress to the second round. A significant advantage had been secured from the away leg with a great lead of 2 1/2 to 1 1/2 with vital wins from Russell Jamison and Davy Stronge, Davy Kirk and Brendan Houston and a half match from Sean Lawell and Stevy Clyde. Unfortunately Malcolm Foreman had a weak partner in the shape of the Team Captain and despite playing well lost 3 and 2.

 

Rockmount got off to a great start at home with a super win from Walter Hogg and Barry O'Neill. However the Team Captains nerves were well and truly shot after Davy and Brendan lost their match and Sean and Stevy came up against an ex priest Frank Fidgeon who really had God on his side shooting an unbelievable 48 points! So it was down to the third match to secure the vital win that was needed for Rockmount to progress. Russell and Davy did not disappoint with a great 4 and 2 win. This sets up a Second Round match against either Co Armagh or Mayobridge. Many thanks to all of the players and supporters.
