Seniors defeat Ardboe
Fr Rocks seniors defeated Ardboe 2-13 to 0-11 in the All County League clash at Paddy Cullen Park on Sunday afternoon. The visitors opened the scoring in the third minute, but Fr Rocks took control of the contest with points from Owen Mulligan, Ruairi Mullan and Conor O'Hare, before Owen Mulligan found the net on 16 minutes to leave the score 1-4 to 0-2. Further points from Mulligan (free) and Conor O'Hare stretched the gap to seven points, before an Ardboe free left the scoreline 1-6 to 0-3 at the break. The visitors opened the scoring in the second half, but a Ryan Pickering point from play was followed by a great goal from Conor Mullan. A superb point from Matthew Carberry opened up a ten point lead, and Raymond Mulgrew responded with a great point after the visitors scored their second of the half. Cookstown were guilty of going to sleep over the next ten minutes as Ardboe kicked five points in a row, the Rocks however kicked the last three scores of the game, Raymond Mulgrew x2, and Marty Hughes, to secure the two points. Fr Rocks scorers - R Mulgrew 0-4, C O'Hare 0-2, O Mulligan 1-3, C Mullan 1-0, R Pickering 0-1, M Hughes 0-1, M Carberry 0-1, R Mullan 0-1.
