U’13 Division 2 League Semi-Final 

Rhode U13s welcomed Edenderry to Fr. Dowling Park last Saturday afternoon in the semi-final of the Offaly County League. With perfect weather conditions, both teams played excellent football to the entertainment of the supporters attending. It was a very close game right up to half time with the scoreline showing 2-2 to 1-2 to the home team. Rhode came out very strong in the second half scoring straight from the throw in and continued to dominate the remainder of the game, finishing on a scoreline of 5-11 to 3-2. The club would like to wish our own Richie Glennon a speedy recovery after sustaining an injury during the game. Thank you to Michael and the Edenderry team for a sporting game of football and it was great to see both teams intermingle afterwards. A note of thanks also goes out to Martin Carty who refereed the game very fairly at all times.
