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.
