Hunter on fire as Rathnew topple Avoca
Village win in rainy Rooster Park
half with Rathnew having the majority of the possession with Nigel Darragh adding a point from the start.
Then came that man again, the predator Jem Hunter, with a point and almost straight away was through again and was took down by full-back Mikey Fahy who will not want to see that man for a while again. The ref had a quick chat with Mikey and showed him the black card. Hunter converted the free.
The game was starting to slip away from Avoca but Martin Kenny had other ideas and was putting in a good shift at the other end of the field and tagged on two more scores for himself but the comeback was shorted lived went Keith Doyle rattled the onion sack for the Village boys.
You could say game over, but wing back Chris Arthur made a serious amount of runs up his side of the field and at times their were lining up to stop him but he would drop the shoulder and sell them the side step and away with him again.
Nigel Darragh said enough was enough and they exchanged pleasantries which resulted in two yellow cards, both sides started to empty their benches as steam started to arise from some players, with the Avoca men’s backs to the wall and never say die attitude they still fought back well but tempers flared a small bit and a few cards were shown and Eric Doyle got showed his second yellow and headed to the line but the game was as good as over at this stage, Hunter tagged on another two points and Bryan Murphy got one to finish the game on 1–11 to Rathew and 0-06 to Avoca.
