Rearcross 'B' 0 - Holycross 'B' 2

Rearcross 'B' welcomed Holycross 'B' to Bilboa for this Third Division League game last Sunday and turned in a brave performance before eventually going under on a two nil score line. The home team missing a number of players for various reasons soaked a lot of pressure early on and were saved by the woodwork on the ten minute mark. Rearcross took over after this and came close with good efforts from Thomas Kennedy and Joey Nolan and then John Ryan Luke's header from a corner kick thumped off the crossbar. Action at the other end of the pitch saw Jim Caplis produce a fine save. The Rea boys turned in a strong finish to the half with efforts from Brian Carey and Joey Nolan not far away. The Glenbane team piled on the pressure in the second half but Rearcross also mustered chances of their own through Thomas Kennedy with a left legged effort and then good work from Brian Carey and Paul Ryan saw the ball break to Joey Nolan who shot over. The visitors netted twice in the final fifteen to seal maximum points on this occasion. Rearcross turned in a promising performance on the day with strong displays in defence and in midfield but ran out of steam eventually and will now re-group for their next league encounter against Ballywilliam
