Mixed Fortunes in Opener

posted Apr 22, 2013, 10:13 AM by Martin McGirr

Fr Rocks seniors travelled to Omagh for the opening game of the 2013 season on Sunday afternoon. There was no fairytale return to senior football as the hosts took the points in an exciting game. Fr Rocks paid the price for not taking their chances in a game which they dominated for long periods. The Rocks got off to a slow start and they found themselves 1-3 to 0-1 down after ten minutes. However they fought back and scores from Owen Mulligan, Conor O’Hare and James McGahan, who each kicked a brace of points kept them in contention. It was a lack of efficiency in front of goal which would ultimately separate the two teams, with Omagh taking their chances when they arrived. Cookstown however can take confidence in what was a good all round team perforamce with impressive displays from Raymond Mulgrew, Marty Murray and Jason Quinn.

Fr Rocks scorers: James McGahan 0-2 (1f), Conor O’Hare 0-2, Raymond Mulgrew 0-1,  Conor Mullan 0-1, Owen Muligan 0-1, Barry Hughes 0-1.


Well done to our Reserve squad who had a superb 1-11 to 1-8 victory over Omagh on Sunday.  Fr Rocks have no senior or reserve fixture this weekend due to the National League Final.
