Murray goal key as Rosenallis continue on upward curve

Rosenallis 1-14 Timahoe 3-6

Laois Shopping Centre ACFL Division 2

Rosenallis’s long winning run continued on Saturday evening when they recorded a two-point win away to Timahoe.

The sides are due to meet in the opening round of the Laois IFC in July – and it was last year’s junior champions that laid down an early marker.

They led 0-8 to 1-1 at the break and a Ronan Murray goal from a penalty as well as a string of fine points from Colm Poole and Joseph Shelley helped the visitors to a narrow win.

Timahoe, who were without their county contingent, had two goals from Paschal Foyle and 1-3 from Ruairi O’Connor, but they were left to rue a host of bad misses and they’ll be keen to exact revenge when they meet in the championship in a couple of months.

The result means that Rosenallis have won all their games to date and move second in the table behind Courtwood.

ROSENALLIS: Barry Farrell; Stephen McEvoy, Ruaidhri Fennell, Adam McDermott; Nicky Dunne, Tommy Keating, Paul Maher; Cathal Fennell, Darren McEvoy; Joe Keating, Colm Poole, Joseph Shelly; James Jackson, Ronan Murray, Brian Fitzpatrick. Sub: Marcus Redmond for C Fennell

TIMAHOE: Eoin Culliton; Richard Oxley, Padraig Kelly, Paddy Brady; James O’Connor, Martin Bergin, James Whelehan; Michael Kerr, Joe O’Connor; Anthony Brady, Paschal Foyle, Conor Whelehan; Robbie Foyle, Ruairi O’Connor, Evan O’Connor. Subs: Colm Dunne for A Brady, Michael Ramsbottom for E O’Connor
