Laois Shopping Centre ACHL Division 1

Camross bounced back from last week’s loss to Borris-Kilcotton thanks to an away win over Rathdowney-Errill this afternoon.

A Ross King goal from Ross King helped Rathdowney-Errill to a 1-9 to 1-7 lead at the break, Camross’s first-half goal coming from Ciaran Collier.

But Camross hit two goals in the first ten minutes of the second half from Mark Dowling and a Zane Keenan penalty to lead 3-12 to 1-13 with 15 minutes remaining.

And with Keenan hitting 1-10 in total, there was to be no denying the county champions.
