posted 7 May 2013, 04:13 by Listowel Emmets
Listowel Emmets and Rathmore could not be seperated in this County Minor League Semi Final, played in splendid conditions in Frank Sheehy Park on Monday last 6th May. The home side got off to a great start where they netted to Rathmore net within the opening minute, however Rathmore got more into the game and lead at half time 2-4 to 1-5. Emmets commanded midfield in the opening quarter of the second half and picked off some lovely scores from Derek Dillon, Jake Moriarty and Micheal Keane Stack. Emmets were once again in the driving seat but a late well pointed 45 by Rathmore brought the game to a draw for the third time in injury time. Rathmore took some good points from the play and went two points clear in the opening half of extra time, Emmets got stuck in again and excellent fielding by Darragh Leahy and defending by Brion O'Donnell and Darragh Broderick kept Emmets in the game, Adam O'Rourke and David Keane took some good points to edge Emmets in front but Rathmore dug deep again and took a great point under pressure to level the game again. Final Score Emmets 2-15 Rathmore 3-12.
This game was a credit to both sides well spirited and great to watch. Details of replay to follow with full match report
