Drogheda Independent - - SPORT -

HUN­TER­STOWN Rovers turned in an ex­cel­lent sec­ond-half dis­play as they eas­ily brushed aside the challenge of O Raghal­laigh’s in Drogheda on Satur­day evening.

The vis­i­tors held a three-point lead at the break, but proved too strong in the sec­ond half as they even­tu­ally won by 12 points.

Two goals from Alan Landy and Ryan Burns in­side four min­utes dur­ing the third quar­ter proved de­ci­sive as Hun­ter­stown got their league cam­paign off to an im­pres­sive start.

Rovers pro­duced some good foot­ball in the first half, and with Alan Landy, Bren­dan Len­non (2), Ryan Burns (2) and Padraig Matthews all find­ing their range, they went in at the break with a 0-6 to 0-3 ad­van­tage.

The Drogheda men were still very much in the game at that stage but faced an up­hill task when Landy scored the first goal of the game on 39 min­utes.

Within four min­utes the game was as good as over as Ryan Burns fired home a sec­ond goal from the penalty spot.

The vis­i­tors com­fort­ably saw out the re­main­ing 17 min­utes to se­cure vic­tory, with Glen Matthews and Padraig Matthews also adding their names to the score­sheet in the sec­ond half.
