In-form Rovers are in the hunt

Mid Louth Independent - - SPORT -

HUNTERSTOWN Rovers made it two wins from two when they de­feated Oliver Plunketts by eight points in Di­vi­sion 2 on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

The hosts were the bet­ter team through­out this con­test but it wasn’t un­til Conor Matthews fired in the only goal of the game three min­utes from time that they re­ally shook off the Plunketts chal­lenge.

Glen Matthews got Hunterstown off the mark on five min­utes with a point, while Ryan Burns chipped in with three points and Ryan Ward a fur­ther two as their side built up a 0-7 to 0-4 ad­van­tage at the break.

The sec­ond pe­riod be­gan with early points from Alan Landy (2) and Burns as Rovers stretched their ad­van­tage and they looked to be on course for a com­fort­able win at that stage. How­ever, with Trevor Walsh and Cian Brady in scor­ing form for the Plunketts they re­fused to give up the fight.

En­ter­ing the clos­ing stages the Drogheda men needed a goal if they were to get some­thing from the game but it was Hunterstown who scored the only goal of the con­test through Matthews to seal the vic­tory.
