Bride Rovers GAA Club Notes.

Footballers Lose Out Again.

For the second time this season our Junior A Grade Football team suffered a one point defeat in the Championship. At Watergrasshill on Saturday evening we lost out to Carrigtwohill on a 2 4 to 1 6 scoreline.

This was a game we should have won well. Having seen the sides level at 0 3 each at halftime the Rovers took over early in the second half scoring 1 2 without reply- the goal coming from Sean Ryan, we led by 1 5 to 0 3 after fourteen minutes.

Then Carrig were awarded a dubious penalty which was converted. They added 1 1 while we could only manage a further single point to leave us on the wrong side of a final score of 2 4 to 1 6.

Team; G. Johnson, J. O Connor, B. O Driscoll, S. Kearney, F. Collins, S.Ryan 1-0, L. Forde, M. Kearney, B. Walsh 0-2, S. O Brien, P. Murphy0-1, B. Johnson 0-1, J. Pratt, J. O Driscoll, J. Mannix.

Subs; T. Broderick, P. Walsh 0-1, P. O Driscoll.
