Rooney to the res­cue for Jocks

Mid Louth Independent - - SPORT -

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.
