Rasharkin back to winning ways

ACFL Div.3

St. Mary’s Rasharkin 2-15 Eire Og 1-6

Rasharkin got back to winning ways in division 3 of the league with a 14 point win over bottom side Eire Og at Dreen.

Eire Og started the game brightly and kicked the opening 2 scores from James Toal and a free from Conor McKenna.  Rasharkin were dominating the possession stakes but were finding it difficult to penetrate a well organised Eire Og defence and could only manage a point from full forward Andrew Hasson by the first water break.    

The second quarter saw Rasharkin get to grips with the opposition and hit long range points from Andrew Hasson, Shane Hasson and Ruairi O’Boyle before Shane Hasson broke through and fired to the net for a well worked goal.

Rasharkin added another point from Fearghal Kennedy before Eire Og hit back with a free from McKenna on the stroke of half time. 

Half time score Rasharkin 1-05 Eire Og 0-03

The game opened up in the second half and although Eire Og gave a good account of themselves Rasharkin were always in control.

Fergus Quigg opened the scoring after a minute, before Oran McMullan hit 2 points on the bounce and Seamus Ellis pointed with an excellent strike in the 5th minute.  James Toal pulled one back for Eire Og but it was all one way traffic as Andrew and Shane Hasson kept the score board ticking over for the home side.  Conor McKenna frees either side of the water break gave Eire Og hope but Rasharkin hit the net again after a long range shot was palmed down to Seamus Ellis who fired home from close range.  Eire Og fought to the end and hit a goal of their own from Stephen Erskine after a mix up in the Rasharkin defence.  The home side finished strongly though with points from Killian and Ruairi O’Boyle before Andrew Hasson finished off the scoring with a well taken free.
