Rooney to the rescue for Jocks
NAOMH Mairtin and Dreadnots played out an entertaining draw at a blustery Clogherhead on Sunday afternoon with JP Rooney striking late to level the game.
Quality wasn’t of the highest standard due to weather but it was Nh Mairtin who started the brightest. They played some good possession football against the wind and went in ahead at half time by one point at 0-5 to 0-4 through good scores from Conor Whelan, JP Rooney and Eoghan Callaghan.
The Clogherhead men came out quicker after half time and levelled things up. Nh Mairtin then scored a goal through Stephen Campbell to go four points clear. However they retreated back into their shell and allowed the Dreadnots back into it and they then levelled things up and got a well-deserved goal from Richard Kriwan and eventually took the lead.
However, Nh Mairtin got an equaliser through a JP Rooney free in added time at the end of the game and in the end a draw was a fair result.
