Another comeback seals second brace of points

Meath U-15 Division 2A League Round 2

Round Towers 4-12 Seneschalstown 5-13

Seneschalstown U-15 Boys travelled to Drumbaragh for the second round of the U-15 Division 2 League to play a very strong Round Towers team.

The game was played with reduced numbers as Round Towers could only field 12 players. The game started with scores from Ross Mullen and Sean Commons before Round Towers added a goal and three points of their own. No quarter was asked or given and the game was played at a frantic pace with lots of mistakes on both sides throughout but never any lack of honest endeavour and for the last ten minutes of the half the Seneschalstown lads got on top when adding a goal from Simon Rooney after a strong run from mid-field and three points from Cathal Hickey, leaving the half time score reading Round Towers 2-08 Seneschalstown 1-07.

The second half started very positive for Seneschalstown with three points on the trot from Sean Commons and Joseph Moore before a seemingly dubious penalty was awarded to Round Towers which they duly converted.

This spurred the Seneschalstown lads on even more, eventually getting two well taken goals from Sean Commons before Round Towers got their fourth goal again leaving the Seneschalstown lads four points down with five minutes remaining before centre half Jamie Kirwan burst forward and after trading passes with Will Finnegan he scored great goal. This was then followed up with a Round Towers attack which was thwarted in the Seneschalstown full back line and Liam Maguire broke forward, passing to Simon Rooney before getting the return pass, he then laid off to Jamie Kirwan and again kept running to create the overlap and on getting the return Maguire fired to the net.

This led to a totally engrossing last few minutes but the Seneschalstown lads held on to win by four points and although it was only another two points it was also a victory for hard work and self-belief and team spirit.
