Russell Rovers 1-17 Erins Own 0-19

Russell Rovers made short work of previous league form in Shanagarry on saturday night last. Overcoming an unbeaten Erins Own by the one white flag.

Results have been steadily improving in the last few outings with a more cohesive look about the spine, opening half was nip and tuck for the majority of the period with Seamus Kearney, Eoin Ivers Barry Hartnett getting scores and especially Dan Moynihan showing well from play and placed balls as we went in at half time two points down after playing against a strong breeze.

The second period was more of the same as Kevin Hartnett marshalling the show from centre back led to us gaining the lead within 5 minutes as scores from sub Kevin Tattan and Barry Hartnett contributed,

Then a long range free from Dan Moynihan was dropped by the Erins Own keeper into his net with 10 minutes to go gave us the cushion as we saw out time with further scores from Dan and Eoin.

Team Joe Walsh, James Ahern JP Ivers Barry Fitzgerald Daniel o Brien Kevin Hartnett Dave Whelehan Dan Moynihan 1-9 Barry Hartnett 0-2 Tony Walsh 0-1 Eoin Ivers 0-2 Kevin Ivers Brian Crowley Seamus Kearney 0-2 Brendan Kearney subs Kevin Tattan 0-1 Shane Fleming Ricky Walsh John Maher
