Under 15 Football
Scoil Ruáin had a narrowest of victories against a very good Pallaskenry side in the U15 Munster Football 1st round. The teams were level at halftime – Scoil Ruáin 4pt to Pallaskenry’s 1-1. Deep into injury time with the teams level still Scoil Ruáin Killenaule won a free which was calmly converted by captain Fionn Fitzgerald. Scoil Ruáin had to defend one more Pallas attack before the relief and joy of the final whistle. The final sore line read Scoil Ruáin 3-9 to Pallaskenry’s 4-5. Scores came from Fionn Fitzgerald 4pt (2 f), Sam Rowan 2-2, Nathan Barrett 1pt, Luke Fitzgerald 1pt and Oisin Lyons 1-1
Under 19 Boys Football
On Monday our U19 senior boys football team battled hard against a very strong Roscrea side in poor conditions for football. Hopes were high as we won this competition last year.
Unfortunately, we were out gunned and lost 3-4 to 3-14. Scoil Ruáin tried hard but Roscrea were far too strong on the day, special mention should be given to Cillian White, Eoin Walsh and Jack Hassett who battled hard even when it looked like the game was out of our reach.
The lads can now focus on hurling and better run in that code.
