Athlone 2-11 St Marys Rochfortbridge 0-11

Athlone's minors recorded a good win at Rochfortbridge's ground on Friday evening last. Starting with 3 U15 players and indeed 7 juveniles it was nip and tuck in the opening minutes as both sides traded points to leave the score at 3 points each. Then Athlone were awarded a soft penalty when Richie Greene went down on the edge of the square. Seamie Byrne duly converted and Athlone would keep the lead until the final whistle. At this stage Athlone were on top in the middle third with their half-backline mopping up the breaks. The full forward line in particular were well on top and indeed had the ball been delivered in a little quicker then this game might not have been as close at the end.
Athlone:  Darren Cassidy, Conor Melinn, Eoin O'Reilly, Daniel Lynam, Aaron Watts, Stephen Ward, Kieran Rigney, Ray Connellan, Gavin Downey, Luke Dully, Seamie Byrne, Warren Conroy, Richie Greene, Charlie McMickam, Aidie Byrne, Kevin Martin, Sam Omokuro, Chris Reid, Alex Molloy
