Minor League Final - Emyvale V Rockcorry.

On Tuesday Sept 7th 2010 Emyvale minors faced Rockcorry in the Div 3 Minor Championship Final in Monaghan Harps Complex at 6pm. This was going to be a close contest and attracted a big number of supporters from both camps. Three weeks ago these two sides met in the League final and it ended in controversy when the Referee awarded a penalty late in the game which Emyvale converted and went on to score the winning point. It was no penalty according to Rockcorry fans but they did have a chance to level the match in injury time but sent it wide. However it was expected that they would make sure of the win on Tuesday night.
From the throw-in Emyvale took control and built up a lead. Rockcorry was a much weaker team from the League as their main players were unable to get into the game and their accuracy was wanting. During the third quarter they made a comeback and clawed their way to within a point. Indeed had they maintained the momentum they could have turned the game around but Emyvale once again got the upper hand and reclaimed the control, especially around the middle and held out for a fine victory.
The Emyvale team was: Matthew McAree, Eoin McCarey, Emlyn McGee, David Downey, David Gilbane, Dylan McKenna, Colin Hughes, James McAllister, Killian McCarron, Stephen Askin, Karl McQuaid, Thomas Doody, Ryan McAnespie, Alan McKenna, Niall McAree, Stephen treanor, John McAllister, Ryan Nestor, Kevin Meehan, Blaine Murphy, Nathan Keenan, Enda Callery, Conor McQuillan and Rory Sherry. Management was John McAleer with selectors Noel McKenna, Arthur Sherry, Malachy McCarey with Stephen McAree, Carl Murphy and Brendan Keenan assisting with training. Well done to all involved.
