Recent Results

County Senior League Round1 : Emmets 0-8 Rathmore 0-8.  Emmets and Rathmore played out a highly entertaining game in Bishop Moynihan Park on Sunday last in splendid sunshine, the home side registered the opening score and quickly added on a pointed free but that was the end of Rathmore’s dominance as Brian McGuire led from midfield with some splendid high fielding where the lively Conor Cox took the first score from pointed free. Emmets defense was rock solid from start to finish with Jack McGuire, Cormac Mulvihill and Brendan Guiney linking well. Improved performance from the younger players Rici Hanley and Darragh Leahy saw Emmets go in 0-4 to 0-2 at the break. Rathmore again opened the scoring with a fisted effort from their corner forward, while Conor Cox put the visitors 3 points clear with a superb long range effort from play. Keith Hughes pulled off a massive save on the 18th minute to deny Rathmore’s only goal opportunity and from there to the final whistle it was nip and tuck, Emmets looked like they had secured victory but a last ditch effort by Rathmore late injury time saw them secure the equalizer. This was a great team effort by Emmets with Currow at home on Saturday evening next they will certainly looking to build on their performance.
