St. Marys 2-11 Rathmore 3-14
Rathmore visited Con Keating Park on Saturday evening in Round 6 of the County League division one. The visitors were quick off the mark, scoring 10-2 without reply in the first two minutes, before Paulie O'Donoghue was brought down in the square, and Sean Cournane comfortably found the back of the net . It was a high scoring first quarter - 1-04 to 2-05, with a second Rathmore goal coming from John Moynihan in the 15th minute. Paul O'Donoghue scored a great goal in the 25th minute, but the half time score read 2-06 to 2-09 in favour of Rathmore.
The second half started tit-for-tat with points and it seemed like St Mary's could possibly have a chance to close the gap, but a third goal from Rathmore from Donal O'Sullivan sealed the deal with five minutes left on the clock. Full time score read 2-11 to 3-14. St Mary's were missing several key players, but Brian Curran, Conor O'Shea, Sean Cournane and Dan Daly shone for the Cahirciveen side.
