Glenbower Rovers 2-16 vs Fr O'Neills 1-14
A cracking Easter Sunday mornings entertainment was had by all who came to see this replay . It was Fr O'Neills who got off to a flying start with three unanswered points in the opening ten minutes before Joe Deane got us off the mark with a well taken goal. We knew then that this was going to go down to the line. After twenty minutes of great football we were tied at 1-04 a piece, Joe Deane, Brian Collins and Sean Long all getting on the scoreboard . Last week we went in to the break a point up, today a point down 1-08 to 1-07. The second half was more of the same with fifteen minutes gone we were still tied at 1-10 a piece, Joe Budds, John O'Connor and Sean Long all got on the score sheet making it 1-12 a piece. With five minutes to go our defence and midfield were on top, the chance of a penalty and two wides gone a begging O'Neills then break but their effort goes to the right and wide. Extra time again O'Neills are first to get off the mark. After six minutes John O'Connor found his range with two great points. Then came the break we were looking for. Timmy Murphy broke down an O'Neills attack and started one of our own. Joe Budds got on the end of it and rattled O'Neills net. Half time 2-14 to 1-13 . Our defence and midfield were outstanding all afternoon. O'Neills only managed to breach our rear guard once more to come to within a goal but a 45 from Joe cancelled that out. But it was Mark Landers who was going to have the last word with a well taken point to see the men from Glenbower advance to the draw stage of the championship. Well done to all involved.
