Rathcline GAA – Club Notes – Sunday 26th May 2013

posted 26 May 2013, 14:59 by Unknown user

Reserve League 2 – Rathcline played St. Columbas in the semi final of the Reserve League Two competition on Saturday night last. This game was a tight and fiercely fought contest from start to finish, so much so the game ended in a draw at full time. Extra time proved no different with Rathcline having to fight back to level the match after conceding a dubious penalty in the first half of extra time. The team showed great character and spirit to recover the deficit and finish the game on a draw. Final score: Rathcline 1-18, St. Columbas 2-15.
