U17 Quay Celtic 1 – 1 Rock Celtic

The U17’s mid week game against Quay at Sandy Lane on Tuesday night ended in a 1-1 draw. It was a good even game with both teams deserving a share of the points. Ronan Molloy scored Rock’s goal.

U14  Muirhevnamore 3-8 Rock Celtic

The U14s keep their 100% record when they defeated Muirhevnamore on a score line of 8-3. Rock played the first half against a very strong wind but were found napping when they conceded a goal in the first minute. However after that setback the Rock got back into their game plan moving the ball around well and creating a few chances.They then made the break through when Chris Stapleton race on to a through ball to finish it to the back of the net. This was follow up with another goal from Gerard Rice when he cut in from the wing to let a shot fly to the back of the net. The Rock were putting a lot of pressure on the home side which resulted in one of their defenders turning the ball into his own net from cross on the right wing from Ciaran Fee.Then Rock fell asleep again and conceding two bad goals when they basically did not deal with a high ball letting the M’more striker in to score twice. H.T. Score was 3-3.
 After getting the lads in for a team-talk and re-focusing them on the game plan of keeping possession and passing the Rock never looked backed.
The Rock went on to create many chances and score five goals in the second half. What was very pleasing to see was the way Rock kept the ball and pass it around. The other goals came from Ben Mooney, Liam O’Callaghan, Ciaran Fee and two great strikes from substitute Aidan Curtin. Again another all-round performance from each player.
 Team: 1. Shane Barron, 2. Ross Kelly. 3.Conall Murdock. 4. Alex Hanneffey. 5.Jack Reid. 6.Ben Mooney. 7. Ciaran Fee. 8. James Cushnahan. 9. Christopher Stapleton. 10. Liam O’Callaghan. 11. Gerard Rice. 12. Thomas Murdock. 13. Ryan Conophy. 14. Aidan Curtin. 15. Oisin Meegan.

U11 Rock Celtic 2-1 Ardee Celtic

On Saturday morning last, the under 11’s played against Ardee Celtic at Sandy Lane. Rock applied most of the pressure in the early stages of this game but found it difficult to take the lead. Declan Curtain playing wide on the left was a constant threat to the Ardee defence and went close on a number of occasions. Mark Durkin playing up front chased every ball and was unlucky not to put Rock ahead on 15 minutes. Connor Casey hit the bar with a thundering shot from 25 yards on 20 minutes. Two minutes later, a ball played by Donal Leavy set Connor up for another long range effort – this time Connor made sure and blasted the ball into the back of the Ardee nets. The teams went in at half time with Rock 1-0 ahead. Ardee came out looking for an equaliser in the second half. They broke down the right wing and shot from an acute angle to find the back of the Rock goals. Adam Gartlan teamed up with Edward Otesonya in midfield and began to dominate – this pressure was to result in three corners for Rock. A half clearance from the Ardee defence fell to Josh Hanna, he picked out the unmarked Sean Maguire who slotted the ball into the back of the net to put Rock 2 – 1 up. The last 5 minutes saw the lads retained possession and the solid defence of Alex Kieran, Connor Casey and Cillian Duffy absorbed any pressure from that Ardee applied. A well-deserved win for the U’11’s who play away to Bellurgan next Saturday morning at 10.00 AM. Best for Rock Celtic were Declan Curtain and Connor Casey.

U10 Muirhevnamore 0 – 0 Rock Celtic

The U10s played out a scoreless draw in a tough scrappy game at Muirhevnamore at the weekend. The Rock lads were prevented from getting into their usual stride with a number of challenges that went surprisingly unpunished by the referee. The Rock lads had almost all of the chances in the game with a great left footed drive by Josh Hanna and an excellant effort by Dara Quinn both going very close. Steve Kamtchou introduced midway through the first half was very unfortunate not to get the opening goal with a great strike. In the second half, Josh went very close with a fine free kick effort. Sennan Carroll who did well upfront for Rock managed to get the ball in the net but it was ruled offside. Layo, Steve and Mark Leavy all pressed forward late in the second half looking for the winner but had to settle for a share of the points in the end. Mark Gallagher had another excellant game, this time in the centre of defence – demonstrating his ability to play anywhere on the park. Despite a number of changes in defence throughout the game the team remained solid with another clean sheet to their and keeper Jack Donohoes collection

U10 Rockville 1-5 Rangers

Rockville put in a spirited performance but were totally outplayed by a strong Rangers side who look set to run away with the Division one league, based on their early season form. Evan Durnin scored Rock’s only goal after a through ball from Frank McGrory. Man of the match for Rock was James Riley.
