Round Tower Rovers 1 - 3 St Patricks Boys

St. Patrick’s Boys 3

Round Tower Rovers 1

Last season’s beaten finalists, Pat’s started the season with a win against Round Tower Rovers of Timahoe, playing their first Junior game in several years.

They fielded a mixture of first and second team players. Pat’s started strongly and were a goal up on 20 minutes, courtesy of Niall Murphy finishing from a good team move. Two more goals before half time by Dinny Farrell and Pauric Quinlan saw Pat's lead at half time.

The second half saw Rovers get a nice goal with a shot from Colum Dunne on the edge of the box. Pat’s freshened the team with subs coming on to see out the rest of the game. The back line for Rovers was commanding and kept the Pat’s forwards at bay for the rest of the half.

However, it is Pat’s who move to the next round with a solid team performance.
