Moneygall 0 - Rearcross 'A' 1
Rearcross were on their travels for the first time in the league last weekend when they travelled to Moneygall for a league encounter. On a day where conditions were far more suited for kite flying than a football match, it was Rearcross who settled in quickest. Playing into what can only be described as a gale wind Rae nearly took the lead when Liam Ryan found himself in a scoring position only for the play to be called back for a tight offside call. Rearcross were working hard all over the field and came close again through efforts from Michael O Gorman and a well struck effort from Patrick Carey. Moneygall threatened near the end of the first half with a well delivered corner but the Rearcross rear guard did well to deal with the pressure. Aided with a strong wind in the second half Rearcross went about breaking down the Moneygall defence and came close early on through a Darragh Kennedy shot and Patrick Deegan heading just over. The all important breakthrough for Rearcross came on the 70th minute when Patrick Carey flicked the ball onto the in form Michael O Gorman who took the ball in his stride before finishing to the bottom corner with the usual aplomb. The weather conditions were impossible for a quality game of football and Rearcross saw out the rest of the game with relative ease and they will be delighted with their start to the season with 2 league wins from 2 and into the shield semi final on Wednesday night against Nenagh Celtic.
